The receivers are more or less identical with the exception of networking capabilities. Both are 3DTV ready with HDMI 1.4 inputs and repeater circuitry for processing high-resolution Dolby and DTS signals. Both utilize discrete power amplifiers sending 100 watts RMS at 8 othms and both use 192kHz/24 bit DACs for all channels.
Sherwood also incorporated the SNAP system, which automatically calibrates the receiver for your room thanks to a series of audio tests with the included microphone. There's also Dual Zone capability, which puts the main room into a 5.1 channel configuration and uses two amplifier channels to play back stereo audio in a second room.
You'll find the RD-705i on shelves in November at a price of $499. The RD-7505 will launch the same month, but at a price of $399.
