Sounds and looks beautiful, this California Audio Labs Surround sound processor and video switcher in excellent condition. State of the art components. I have the SSP AND the Lexicon MC1, and I can tell you hands down, the SSP simply sounds better. The Lexicon does have more sound settings, but when you watch movies, you use dolby digital and DTS, which both have. Besides DD & DTS, the sound modes also include DSP bypass, stadium, symphony hall, jazz club, 5-channel matrix, stereo, stereo 3-channel. I rarely use the other sound fields, so it doesn't matter that much. 2-channel sound is no contest. The dacs are far superior in the Cal Audio units and the build quality is better than the Lexicon. The video switcher is broadcast quality and can handle HD signals up to 1080i via component. 

All high end surround processors in this category DON'T have HDMI, only the mass consumer level receivers have it, so unless you want to spend more than $8000 for a Lexicon MC-12HD  processor or the like, just hook up your DVD player with HDMI to your monitor and leave the sound to the SSP which is what I do. You can spend almost the same for mediocre sound with HDMI on a mass consumer receiver, or have excellent sound from a company known for superior sounding products. The unit is easy to set up and very configurable from crossover frequency, channel delays, etc.
