I disconnected the HDMI cables from the Lumagen and from the Sony 4K player, and now the processor boots.


I will continue to try to isolate the issue.
2 years later... I have the exact same problem.

I've been desperate for the whole day, until I read your post. Then I removed all hdmi cables, did a hard reset, and prayed. And ... it worked !!! Alleluia

This post saved my day... well even my whole summer vacations

I am sooooooooo relieved and happy at the same time. Peace on Earth !

Eternal gratitude to AVS forum and this topic's members who already saved me a couple of times ! <3

Glad that my old post was of assistance. I've had this problem a few times since then, and that fix has always worked.

I certainly hope that the news of Classé's demise is in error. My CT-SSP is working fine, and I hope it continues to do so. I'd hate to have to find a replacement.

Wow is this really true?

I sold my SSP-800 earlier in the year to move to 4K. I went with an Arcam AVR to use as a pre/pro as well as use its amps for height speakers only.

Not a week goes by that I don't think about the 800. I never had a single issue in many years of ownership and the sound quality for an all in one unit was second to none. I can't believe how good stereo was with this unit as shamed many stand alone stereo pre-amps.

The Arcam and Classe are two different animals with the Classe being superior minus 4K support. There of course was a huge price difference but anyone saying they all sound the same is hugely mistaken.

I would grab one of the Classe 4K SSPs while they last but can't afford it at the moment.

What a bummer. Classe made some of the best gear I've ever owned besides Simaudio.

Too bad an 800 replacement will not be on the horizon. It seems Millenials are taking us down the path of portable audio/video. The landscape is changing and world class companies are closing their doors or selling to Asia.

What a bummer.

This is indeed sad! I had the SSP-600 (couldn't afford the 800) and I must say it was quite good in analog 2 channel mode. My unit died about 8 months ago or so and was replaced with the Anthem listed in my signature. Personally, I think it's a tad better than the my old 600 but not by much.

Another top notch audio company bites the dust...sad for both the industry and consumers who appreciates great sounding audio.

I still own my SSP-800. I use it in my larger dedicated room that is only setup for 5.1 audio. I purchased it for it's superior 2 channel playback capabilities. It still amazes me how good it sounds. Sad that it will now be a boat anchor. No real support form Classe after a strong debut. If I ever replace it it will now be the Theta Casablanca which was more than I wanted to spend when I bought the Classe unit.

I sent an email to my dealer yesterday on the news and the reply back today was yes, they believe it to be true.

Very unfortunate.

Contrary to rumors, Classé has not closed. I'm not sure how they started, and I apologize for any confusion they may have caused.
We have stopped development on the Delta Series to ensure that the products deliver the experience people have come to expect from Classé Audio and Bowers & Wilkins. We will continue to sell Sigma Series products, and our customer service and support have not been effected. Please let me know if you have any questions.

It's all good bruh. Thankfully, they're not shuttering their doors because Classe make fantastic sounding products and the industry is better because of it. I continue to have fond memories of my SSP-600 processor due to how it made 2 channel analog audio sound.

This is really good news and maybe a 4K pre will find its way home.

But seriously I was told the same when I asked. Hope not just a delay.

But for now good to hear.
