The Sherwood R-977 is a decent-sounding receiver, though at the crowded four-figure price point, the handful of popular brands that dominate the market do a better job. But this is one of very few receivers (along with certain Sony, Onkyo, and Yamaha models) to offer Wi-Fi connectivity along with the more customary Ethernet. The Bluetooth dongle offers wireless connectivity to mobile devices, making the absence of AirPlay less significant. On the whole, this is a fair to middling receiver that offers a lot of network audio functionality for the price.
