Just a little point of interest for anyone that has McIntosh amps and may be considering getting the SSP-800. I have a MC-205 amp and when I tried to hook the power control trigger cable up from the 800 to the amp to enable me to power them both on/off with the processor's remote, I discovered that the amp would flash on and then the power meters on the McIntosh would go dark. This was a bit disturbing and led me to believe that the amp might be going into its' Power Guard protection mode for some reason.
Long story short, I should have stuck with the McIntosh's cable because it is a stereo cable as opposed to the Classe's cable which is the standard mono. The stereo cable is designed to turn on both the amp and the power meters on the Mc. When I switched back to the Mc's cable it worked fine.
