I think that having a balanced digital input is even more important than ATMOS if you like music. So, when you get your new processor, keep this in mind.

This is a powerful statement indeed which is why I want Roger Dressler, who owns both the Marantz and Classe, to comment. So for you Krell Foundation, Classe SSP800 and Bryston SP3 owners, take note...

I think Kal Rubinson has already answered the question as how the Classe SSP-800 compares to the SP3. But, this is a pretty strong statement that the SSP800 sounds better with 5.1 than the Marantz...

I am using iTunes and I am only ripping 44.1/16. I find that most hi res play louder but are not as natural sounding as ripping red book CDs. I own about 50 hi res albums, and I have been mostly...

You may be able to set the startup volume for each input by setting the unit to individual rather than global; I don't know because I never tried it. :o

I have already set my volume sometime ago, however, I do not remember. Your best bet is to download the extended manual Bryston has posted on the internet. What is your setup, 5.1 or 7.1?

Sorry to quote my own statement, but I gave an incorrect name for Stereo 7.1. The correct name is Stereo7 7.1. In any event, this surround codec takes a two channel (Stereo) signal and converts it to...

I counted 9. :eek: Regardless, my main point is audio quality is more important than features. But, I guess if your focus is movies than musicality is unimportant. :(

I think you are going about this purchase the wrong way. You named every requirement but good sound. However, at some point you will get what you want; a feature laden processor that sounds bad. :eek:
