I emailed 1SaleADay the following:

I just ordered http://1saleaday.com/flash/r-972/ my order number is: XXXXXXX I'd like to know if the refurbished model includes the microphone which normally comes with this item. The item isn't much good without this proprietary microphone. Please let me know ASAP so that I may cancel my order if I cannot find this part elsewhere.
I received this as the response

Thank you and we appreciate your business.

I'm not very happy with that merchant. Didn't answer my question at all, just canceled the order.

I wonder if it comes with the calibration microphone...they only say a remote but also a retail box.
I called sherwood - it does. it is sherwood refurbished - and sherwood works with 1SaleADay on this sale directly.

Thanks OP. In for 1.
Repped.

Perfect timing.
Now I just need to sell my they-dont-make-them-like-this-anymore 63 lb THX-Ultra2 Pioneer Elite VSX-47TX (don't let the number 47 fool you, compared to some models in the current lineup with higher model numbers. The 47TX was the second or third highest model at the time ($3,000 MSRP orig) but I got it used at a nice discount, albeit still not cheap (more than double this deal) with one known knob defect that is resolved by simply using the original Pioneer remote to switch inputs.
The only reason for upgrading from my Elite (which I love) to this Sherwood Newcastle is to get ALL the latest DD and dts decoding.
I mainly just needed DD Plus decoding for my streaming movies service.

Anyway, thanks again OP!

Surprised one R-972 went for only for $337.00 on eBay, albeit just recently. A4L had them for $599.99 and they sold well, with forum members at avsforums and audioholics buying a bunch, some members bought two.
As a member said "Each unit sold to A4L represents a major $ loss for Sherwood, the retail selling price @ A4L was below the Sherwood factory FOB cost... "
I believe this at $299.99 handily beats the $319 + tax clearance Elite VSX-51TX I passed on at BB last night (and was considering picking up tonight till I read this post while doing some more research tonight).

How do you add a Squaretrade warranty to this?

Can I buy one at Costco for it?
Bought a TV at Costco and returned it, but was allowed to keep the low priced square trade warranty I had purchased for the TV, just in case I bought another TV.
I ordered a new TV online and after registering it with (Costco) Squaretrade I have three additional years of warranty for $29.99.

BTW, I have been searching for a super slickdeal on this receiver forever, and finally bought it!
I had the pleasure of having this demo'ed for me at a Sherwood Newcastle/Boston Acoustics/McIntosh distributor and it is a beast!! Even at dealer cost two years ago this is less than 1/3 the price!

I bought it myself - but only after the lady at Sherwood's toll free number assured me that they are associated with the sale and that the receiver includes the calibration microphone.

She was perhaps the least chatty call center reps I ever talked to...
She: Sherwood
Me: Hi, this is XYZ, I have a question about your refurbished items. Would you know if a refurbished R-972 includes the Trinnov calibration microphone?
She: Yes
Me: It includes it?
She: Yes
Me: The deal website 1SaleADay sells those receivers right now. Do you guys know about it?
She: Yes
Me: Are those official Sherwood refurbished receivers?
She: Yes
Me: And are you doing the sale with them?
She: Yes
Me: Thank you, have a great day.
She: Goodbye.

I was ready to order, measured my TV stand and it won't fit. I guess back to the search...I am thinking Denon 1713.

I'm running the R-972 as a pre/pro with a 7x200W Outlaw amp. I couldn't get Trinnov to work the first several times I ran it. It turned out I had a bad tweeter in one speaker that screwed up its calculations. It works great now.

In for another one... I bought one a few years ago (used for $500) and the 3D remap with Trinnov is amazing! Don't buy this for video processing, although I use it with HDMI for both audio and video, video is pass through only.

It is one of the BEST surround sound processors for audio! I had a $1500 Onkyo 9.2 preamp, high end Denon and Marantz, Trinnov beats them all (Audyssey ...), by a long shot! You'd have to move up to Anthem or ADA's $10,000 Trinnov processor to do better... not in my budget! WARNING, it is not the most user friendly but the audio quality is worth the hassle!

BTW, these were going refurb on eBay for around $350 plus shipping a few weeks ago.
