Conclusions

I have never heard better surround sound from movies or music discs than what I experienced with the Classé SSP-800. This is definitely reference quality. Finally, one can have audiophile-grade sound with multi-channel music, as well as with movies that have high definition soundtracks (most Blu-ray movies these days), using the HDMI input. It does not have all the myriad features present on most other processors, but the vanishingly low distortion more than makes up for perhaps a little more setup by hand rather than automation.

Extraordinary.
