Classé SSP-800 and CT-SSP Are Now 3D-Ready with HDMI 1.4


November 30, 2010By Mark Elson - Senior Editor



Classé Audio recently unveiled new HDMI 1.4 video capabilities in its updated SSP-800 and CT-SSP Surround Sound Processors. They are now available with the new video board. The new board has five full-featured HDMI 1.4 inputs and two outputs, which support all standard 3D i video resolutions and formats plus HEC (HDMI Ethernet Channel) and ARC (Audio Return Channel). "The SSP-800 and its rack-advantaged twin, the CT-SSP, are the most successful products in Classé history," said Dave Nauber, Executive VP, Brand Development. "They have the right technology, performance and price. Adding new HDMI 1.4 capabilities will ensure they remain the processors that everyone wants to own."

According to Classé, the original video board was designed in such a way that it could be easily replaced, making upgrades to existing units both possible and straightforward. The new video board fits in the original rear panel space. It adds a fifth HDMI input by eliminating two S-Video inputs, deemed no longer necessary. Upgrade kits sell for $1,500 and are available through authorized Classé dealers. MSRP for SSP-800 and CT-SSP is $9,500 each.

The thought of all these guys that started life as audiophiles 20-30 years ago playing Beethoven records gradually evolving into 3D animated movie watchers just to be able to take advantage of the latest developments in electronics is kind of hilarious .......

My thought exactly. Beethoven went out of business 170 years ago anyway. Welcome to the future and sign me up for a pair of glasses!!!
