The new Classé Sigma SSP has an improved audio DSP and HDMI hardware. The eight-channel Sigma SSP MkII supports Dolby and DTS 3D audio formats when configured as a 5.1.2 channel system and passes 4K UHD video at 60 Hz with HDCP 2.2.
Using a new dual DSP module featuring a Texas Instruments 456 MHz DA830, a dual core floating-point audio processor with ARM9 and an audio-specific DA810 32-/64-bit floating point DSP provides the needed processing power to accurately decode the latest 3D audio formats and perform the many post-processing capabilities that set the Classé Sigma SSP MkII apart.
An upgraded HDMI board adds HDMI 2.0 features like pass through of UHD video (4K@60Hz) and HDCP 2.2 compatibility.
The list price for the Sigma SSP MkII is $6,000 and the Upgrade Kit is $1,000. Both will be available later this month and here are the specs.
