Classe ssp 600 vs 800 ?

I am debating on a classe ssp 600 or 800, I really don't need video switching since I hook all my video sources directly to my tv, I can save a lot by buying the 600, so my question is audio wise, is there a difference, thanks
Zephyr24069: Does the SSP 600 have analog bypass input capability?

I send analog 7.1 and XLR stereo from an Oppo BDP-95 to a Cary Cinema 11a. The Oppo does the processing, including bass management; the Cary passes the signal to the amps, so the subs can be activated even with SACDs. The Cary does control volume and convert RCA to XLR, but it treats PCM 88.2 kHz as DSD, so does no bass management. Analog bypass gets around that problem.

Sorry for the delay in replying....both the SSP600 and 800 have analog bypass. I utilized the analog bypass with XLR outputs exclusively with my SSP600 and the results were very good. The SSP600 (like the 800) also has the ability to utilize a separate pre-amp for the front L/R channels (HT passthrough); I also utilized this quite extensively after getting a standalone pre-amp (CP700) to utilize for 2-channel listening as well as bettering my HT experience by using the separate pre-amp to drive the front two channels.
The analog section of the SSP800 is significantly better than the SSP600 though.
Yes...that is correct; I only heard the 800 twice but owned the SSP-600 for more than 2 years so I was sticking to what I know fully.
Hey Samski!

The advantage of an SSP-800 is that by using a Lilliput 8" HDMI secondary monitor at the seating position (mine is mounted on the lamp) you can fire up your music and watch ID3 info on the secondary without the projector on, or having to squint at the components across the throne room:)
