The RSX-1560 is Rotel's flagship receiver in their new Series 15 audio components. The new cosmetic look of the 15 series is simply stunning and very elegant. More importantly, the 1560 posses two firsts for Rotel receivers. One is the use of Class D amplifiers, specifically Bang & Olufsen ICE power modules. Second, it decodes the latest high resolution movie codecs.
With multi-zone audio, scaling, and video conversion, the RSX-1560 is fully equipped except for Auto Room Setup (adjustment of frequency response, loudness levels, delay based on speaker distance, etc.), which is a little strange, since most receivers these days have that feature.
