    I ahve just seen the specs for this player on a website, and read the review in What hifi.

    My main question is to do with the bass management. It has been said that there is bass management for both SACD, and DVD-A, but how good is it as I am using the Kef 2005.2 package, and wondered if all bass is moved to the sub, even if the DVD-A (or SACD) is recorded in 5.0, or 2.0.

    All help will be greatly rec'd

    Cheers

    Ricky:D

    Anybody, I know this a new player, but I believe it is on sale now, so someone should know.

    Thanks

    The player is called 563 in the states I assume

    No idea on the internals, but the 563 certainly *looks* different to the 565 (primarily the jog(?) dial on the right..) :eek:

    Interested in the bass management aspect as well - is it true the 656 is lacking in this department (DVD-A especially), along with speaker delay settings..?

    :rolleyes:

    btw - the 563 is only ~$160 over there, nice huh...? :rolleyes:

    I really don't understand why the 565 does prog scan for ntsc only.

    Also, what is delay adjustment? Is that to overcome lip sync?

    I'm assuming it's for the centre & rear speakers..

    Like a speaker distance setting? Dont see the point in that really, considering all amps have that.
