At least the Classé SSP-800 will be 1.3a, which is a big step in the right direction. And hopefully Classé makes good on their promise to offer a free upgrade to include the HBR decoders by years end. I know that if spring or summer of '09 rolls around and still no upgrade, there are going to be a lot of very unhappy people who bought SSP-800's because they were told of an upgrade. Seth
Seth, you are right if Classé doesn't deliver the upgrade a lot of people are going to be very very unhappy. But you know what they won't care, which is why I might wait before putting $8K down and make sure that it has all the decoding integrated!!
Classé SSP-800 was supposed to be released in March and we are in May and still no SSP-800?
