dynguy.....thank you for your post. No one questioning the performance aspect of SSP. Like you said, it's a great pre/pro and I agree 100%. Not too long ago used SSP were sold north of 5K plus. Consider yourself lucky if you get 4K now. The resale have taken a hit lately, could be due to release of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. I do realize all processor have shelf life. Here is my biggest beef, Classe has done nothing to keep its flagship processor relevant. If anything, the release of Sigma SSP further devalued the SSP-800 worth in new or used market.
Would you buy a SSP-800 new or used, knowing Sigma SSP get you the same performance for half the price?
