    Just curious if anyone has had any experience with the Marantz AV560. I saw one for sale and was wondering if it would be worth a look to replace my Denon 1801 in another move to seperates. How much would one be worth used if anyone has an idea

    Kevin, I think I looked at that model when I got my AV9000 pre over 2 years ago. It didn't have the THX curcuit but did include a decorilation circuit for surround speakers. It lacked the AC-RF demodulator for LD that I wanted. It was a small, short component compared to the tall AV9000. It did come with a RC2000 type remote. Mabe you ought to look for a closeout or used AV9000? But, you can't have mine! The 9000 has more inputs and is just bigger and better, IMO. Best wishes!

    Thanks for the info. Right now I'm not really looking for something with many inputs, features, etc. Just looking for DD5.1/DTS and be able to hook to my amp(Rotel RMB 1066). Figure if I can get this for the right price and sell my Denon to cover the cost would it be worth it.
