Posted in the Altitude 16 review thread as well. Not sure if it's been posted, but these are the specs from the JBL SDP-75 manual. Supposedly the same DACs (and therefore performance?) across the Trinnov product lines.
Not sure what bugs you are referring to unless you have SDP-75 mixed up with the SDP-55 which is based on the Arcam.On the JBL SDP75, how many filters are available per channel... I want to do a 2 or 3 way crossover for my front 3 channels. Also are the bugs finally solved?
I had thought all of the processors except the Trinova and Storm had bugs...thank you for clarifying that. Does it have the same filter capacity as the Trinnov? What are reasons to get the Trinnov over the SDP75? I am hoping that I can swing enough cash to get the Trinnov, but the SDP75 is much more in reach for me...henc3 wanting to know whatthe SDP75 lacks.Not sure what bugs you are referring to unless you have SDP-75 mixed up with the SDP-55 which is based on the Arcam.
Being based on the Trinnov the SDP-75 has extensive capabilities related to available filters and active crossovers.
Thank you very much for the info...if I can I will go for the Trinnov...if not I might go for the SDP75...I def need at least 16 channels of output, and bi/tri amp capability, so I can eliminate my Xilica, and Minidsp DDRC88As. The SDP75 has Auro3d just like the Altitude, correct?.The SDP-75 is a rebadged Trinnov Altitude 32 with speaker curves for a variety of Harman speakers added and a few features, like PEQ and remapping, removed. There's a list somewhere on ASR but I could not find it with a quick look. The only differences I remember are that the AEQ for Harman speakers and loss of 3D remapping and PEQ. Folks at Harman are on record as to why they feel those features are not relevant and could be harmful; again, you'd have to search for their reasoning (not on ASR).
All processors can have bugs, but Trinnov is pretty quick to find and fix them. Doing everything in software makes it easier, and having the resources to address problems quickly and over a (very) long product life is a huge bonus for me. No more "that's last year's model, buy this year's if you want that bug fixed or newer codecs". There are things that require hardware upgrades, like new video (HDMI) standards, but they offer HW updates as well.
I do not recall how many filters per channel, but have read of people using 50+, so "lots". As long as you have enough channels you can fairly easily set up a multidriver system, customizing the filters for each driver (or set of drivers, in groups).
I seem to recall an SDP-65 that was based on the Trinnov Altitude 16 platform but do not see it on the JBL website (?)
The SDP-55 is a different beast based on an entirely different company's platform.
I have no experience with Storm products.

On the JBL SDP75, how many filters are available per channel... I want to do a 2 or 3 way crossover for my front 3 channels.
I believe Alt16 could manage hi/low separately as 2 channel to 1 speaker. (Assuming the speaker has
But what will be the benefit of this v.s. using 1 channel to 1 speaker?
I am about to get Alt16 and thinking how to use the most from it for my 7.4.4 system.
Probably biamp the LCR, then 4 subwoofers manage by 1 minidsp.
Then the remaining 8 , total 15 only.
Any good suggestion ? Thanks.
Hi all, on the verge of moving forward with a spd-75… is there any hardware update happening soon that its worth waiting on ? Or alititude 32 changing?
also what is the reason for excluding the remapping..i was thinking that would be great to have but spd-75 from above says its removed… thoughts on why?
