The RSX-1560 is a receiver a worthy contender in the boxing ring of receivers. The sonic character is on the cool side which works well in certain rooms and speakers. Detail and dynamics are exceptional at this level.
Sonically there's little to fault with the Rotel as long as you upgrade the power cord.
It's a shame most dealers don't allow home auditions of gear this expensive. In the end, the combination of gorgeous cosmetics, phenomenal build quality, and good audio performance, suggest that the Rotel RSX-1560 should be on your short list of receivers to audition at this price range.
