If you think you can build something better and cheaper, I suggest you do it. Until then, you will never have any credibility. now shoo!
How dare you Windsor question the GOOD CLASSÉ!!!!!
From the horse's mouth:
"The only 192kHz source material that we are currently aware of are 2 channel DVD-As and the SSP-800 is capable handling them. In terms of multichannel audio, the SSP-800 handles 8 channels at 96kHz, which is Blu Ray's maximum capability.
The Dual DSP will be able to handle 192kHz, because this is the bitrate for the encoded bitstreams.
We are fully aware of the technology being deployed by our competitors. Very few chips are available that can decode the HD bitstreams and we are courted by their manufacturers. Furthermore, Dolby keeps us regularly updated as new chips become available.
We have to make judgments based on the chip performance and selected the TI platform because we consider it the best. We could have selected other chips in order to attain decoding capability at launch but were unwilling to accept the performance sacrifices that this would have involved.
If you are willing to accept a performance sacrifice to have decoding capability now then you may want to invest in any of the brands you list below.
If you are looking for ultimate performance and decoding capability, then you will regrettably have to wait.
Please be assured that we want the dual DSP as much as you do."
