The Sony RDR-VX560 is a high-end DVD recorder and VHS combo designed for average consumers looking to record content onto DVD discs without all kinds of advanced features. The VX560 features two unique one touch dubbing and one touch recording features which allows users to copy content directly to a DVD or to a VHS tape quickly and conveniently. The RDR-VX560 does not include an integrated television tuner but includes a Set Top Box Controller (IR Blaster or "cable mouse") that allows users the option to record standard programs by controlling channel changes on an external cable box.

The Sony RDR-VX560 also includes additional features such as universal media disc playback support for use with virtually all types of recordable media, Sony compatible Bravia Sync technology for easy connection with other Sony products such as a Sony HDTV, several different recording modes, unique video noise reduction support for a sharper picture, and a 16-bit/96KHz digital to analog audio converter. It is worthy of noting that the RDR-VX560 more importantly includes an HDMI port, and also features full HD up-scaling support through the HDMI output.
