Pretty much agree with the other poster. These amplifiers offer a very neutral, open, quite deep and definately hifi experience. It cannot be faulted for the sort of money they sell for secondhand. I wholeheartedly recommend this amplifier if, like me, you once delved heavily in audiophilia and now take things a lot less seriously but still know and demand good performance from your equipment. Solidly built with a decent phono stage you don't need to look any further than the Denon PMA-560 if you're considering buying a quality budget amplifier.

>Denon PMA-560

I got this amp in 2ยบ hand, i'm using it in a second system with a Marantz CD63 KY and a pair of Mission 751 with Straightwire Raphsody cables. I compare it with hes bigger brother, the Denon PMA 720, a Marantz PM6010 OSE KI and a Nad 3020i.
Sound: The soudstage is very wide, not to deep tough, but he is able to recreate a soundstage and fill the gap between the speakers like no other mencioned above. The bass is controlled and fast, of course he does't go as deep as my McCormack DNA 1 but he as strength enough to punch you in the stomac if music requires so. The mids are very expressive, maybe a little enfasis in the high/mids but combined with the right speakers gives him a sense of presence very convincing. The highs are sweet, not the most extensive and of course a litle grain, (the absence of grain in the highs is for another leage), but you can ear music for hours with this amp and never getting the sense of fatigue. The other thing i notice about this amp that make him special is the silence between the "notes", far better than any other mencioned here, (McCormack Inclusive!!!!).
After listen the the PMA 720 I wasn't expecting much from this amp, not that the 720 was bad but being a inferior model in the hierarchy...after all!!! He has a personality, isn't as neutral as the Nad 3020i, but the soudstage, the presencence and realism he plays music, makes it far better. A good buy.
