I have the SSP 600. The Sound quality is excellent but just not quite as good as my Levinson N32 pre Amp for 2 channel. For Surround sound and movies its great. One Neg is that it does not have HDMI connections. Therefore I need a separate switch for the video images from cable , DVD and out to TV or projector.
If I were to purchase a processor today I would get one with HDMI inputs, hidef codec, and Audyssey room equalizer. The current generation of processors that do not have HDMI and hidef codecs will quickly become obsolete and/or lose significant value. Remember what happened to DD only processors that didn't have DTS codec? Unfortunately the ones that have those features today are only from the consumer brands such as Marantz and Onkyo/Integra. They are well received, although I haven't seen any comparison against the ones from boutique brands.
