Other Notes: "When I first reported on the 565, it was the first DD product I had spent a lot of time with, and I took for granted some of the features in it. I have now listened to several other DD decoders that are newer than the 565, and they still do not have all the features the 565 had a year ago, such as the compression modes. The 565 has basically 5 modes: a standard mode which uses dialog normalization, 3 modes that help with nighttime listening, and 1 more mode that turns off dialog normalization. Some of the other processors I have heard range from no nighttime modes to 1 or 2. Some also have dialog normalization that cannot be defeated!
The 565 is continuing forward and keeping pace with all of the new technology that comes out. Meridian was one of the first companies to release Dolby Digital, and they are also one of the first to do DTS. With a company that is always on the forefront pushing the envelope of technology, you are sure to be along for a first rate trip." - Stacey L Spears, Home Theater Hi-Fi
