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.
