There is a growing consensus among home theater enthusiasts and critics that the Classé SSP-800 is the world’s ultimate surround sound processor. The CT-SSP uses exactly the same circuitry as the SSP-800 and is identical in features, performance and price. The units differ in their outward appearance and chassis design, with the CT-SSP intended especially for equipment racks.
Like the SSP-800, the CT-SSP is a ten-channel preamp/processor, offering both balanced and single-ended connections for all channels. Using HDMI 1.4 the CT-SSP offers internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD Master Audio sources. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is handled by two Texas Instruments processors, each capable of up to a remarkable 2800 MIPS (Million Instructions per Second). The DSPs operate in 64-bit double precision and use floating point arithmetic for all audio signal calculations to ensure the most accurate results possible. All bass management filters, level adjustments and parametric filters also benefit from the added precision.
