hands down best surround a/v processor: classe ssp-800

ok, ok: i know this is for the silver spoon crowd, but goddamn we the people should have access to this (can’t i rent it from the library?)

if ever you wondered, “what is the most transparent noah’s ark of a/v?!” well then:

bring me two of every animal!!

classé ssp-800.

fucking almost $10k (unless you know whom to blow…). but i tells you, if ever a soul was sold for a tidy profit, then it’s on this bit of kit. fucking MONSTEROUS sound. transparent 1080p video jockey-ing. trust me, you have never heard DTS-MA like this. remember that it’s just a pre-amp so you’ll be spending another 10K+ for suitable amps…

i really hate the touch screen and the color of the lcd gives me tourette’s, not to mention the extra stuffy “made for bankers” front extrusion but *consarnit* these things have sweet nada to do with how it sounds. and it fucking sounds.

the build is fully world class. possibly better.  even the box it comes in is truly haute.

if i didn’t like to drive so much or eat, i’d buy this in a heatbeat (and hide it behind a curtain). c’mon lotto, c’mon!!!
