Optional Upgrade Kits

CP-800 – Digital Audio Upgrade Board

CP-800 MkI boardBy installing the CP-800 Digital Audio Upgrade Board you will be able to play back audio files with a 192 kHz sample rate over USB, stream audio over your home network and control the CP-800 wirelessly using the Classé App. The CP-800 Upgrade Board must be installed by your Classé Dealer or Service Center.

SSP-800 / CT-SSP – HDMI 1.4 Upgrade Board

HDMI 1.4 Upgrade BoardThe HDMI 1.4 Upgrade Board features five full-featured HDMI 1.4 inputs and two HDMI outputs. All support standard 3D video resolutions and formats, as well as HEC (HDMI Ethernet Channel) and ARC (Audio Return Channel). Because Classé designed the original HDMI 1.3 video board to be easily replaced, an upgrade to either the SSP-800 or CT-SSP is extremely straightforward in the rear panel space. You will lose two S-Video inputs, but gain a fifth HDMI input. That sounds like a decent swap, given today’s A/V devices.

How do you know if you already have an HDMI 1.4 board installed?
Simply count the number of HDMI inputs: If the unit has 5 HDMI inputs, it has an HDMI 1.4 board.

Phono Preamp Module – for Sigma SSP MkI and MkII, Sigma 2200i and CP-800

PPM Phono BoardThe PPM Phono Preamp Module can add phono input capability to either version of the CP-800, the Sigma SSP and SSP MkII and the Sigma 2200i. Gain can be set to support MM (42dB) or MC (62dB) type cartridges and a range of custom loading options can be selected via dip switches. Installing this high quality phono preamp internally provides the shortest signal path while saving the cost of chassis and power supply that external phono preamps require. The result is performance that rivals outboard units costing several times its price.
