I am in the process of evaluating new SSP's. I am currently using an Integra 80.2 and, unlike some folks, have had excellent results with Audyssey (Pro). The only audible negative I am hearing is the amount of noise this processor puts out with no signal. I have yet to try analog input but it has been implied that the analog in are not a strong suit. In addition, I am looking for a product that has excellent 2 channel capability. I am considering or have considered: (Those in bold are still on the short list)
AP20 but it is not quite ready for prime time (among other things, no current bass management)
SSP-800 (eliminated due to minimal room correction of 5 PEQ's per channel)
Anthem D2V - Don't know much about it as of yet so looking for any input (positive or negative). My local dealer carries this and the SSP-800 and while he says the SSP-800 sounds great, if room correction is important to me, it doesn't cut it). (And it's not about profit for him since I sell him my products for cost and he does the same)
Krell (over priced)
Theta (no room correction therefore not an option)
Meridian: Out of my price range.
Has anyone heard the Anthem and been able to compare it to any of my other candidates? I'm most interested in the kind of room correction technology used (parametric EQ, time domain based EQ, etc)
