SSP-60 7.1 SURROUND SOUND PREAMP PROCESSOR

SSP-60 enhancements include separate power supplies for analog and digital circuits. Analog audio and video signal paths benefit from linear power supplies. Supply voltages are further refined with multiple stages of regulation, supplemented by hand-selected bypass capacitors to ensure fast and clean power reserves. Balanced output circuitry is implemented using discrete components for optimum performance. As with all Classé components, rigorous listening tests are used to refine circuit board layout choices and guide our selection of component parts. The result is a remarkable processor, offering rich, full and natural sound, and comfortably able to satisfy the most demanding audiophiles in the most sophisticated multichannel systems. 

Component Video Switching 
Component video switching for up to three sources extends the functionality of the SSP-60 beyond standard composite and S-video paths. The bandwidth of the video path is sufficiently above 100 MHz, ensuring degradation-free switching for High Definition video sources. 

Safety Standards 
As part of corporate policy, all Classé products fully tested and safety approved by independent bodies. All models have passed the most stringent tests and are certified for both EMC protection requirements as well as North American and European Common Market low-voltage safety regulations. 

Additional Features 
RS-232 control, IR remote control (front and rear panel), Direct Access Commands, Onscreen display, DC triggers, Automatic Calibration with supplied microphone (SSP-60 only), 7.1 channel analog pass-through, and two-channel second-zone capability.
