Hertz S8 DSP

HI RES DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSOR

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The ultra-compact S8 DSP is the perfect solution for integrating any OEM source into your audio upgrade project for cars, motorcycles and boats!

Hertz S8 DSP processor

S8 DSP is a distilled essence of technology at the service of the highest audio quality in a corrosion-free case cast in metal and composite materials.

 

S8 DSP processes the audio signal with 96 kHz / 24-bit resolution and has obtained the Hi-Res certification from the JAS (Japan Audio Society), an acknowledgment that certifies the extreme level of audio performance achieved.

The powerful 32-bit DSP manages 6 high/low-level analog input channels, one digital coaxial input, and 8 output channels, offering maximum freedom of configuration to the specialist. The SPDIF coaxial input is ideal for digital connection with a Hi-Res player, a solution that allows for maximum listening quality.

For each of the eight output channels we have a level control, the 15-pole parametric equalizer, time delays, and crossover filter available.

 The 7-band parametric equalizer of the input signal allows obtaining a flat response from OEM sources, which have an exaggerated emphasis on the low frequency.

All connections are arranged on one side to facilitate installation and use robust Molex connectors for inputs and outputs.

Integrated USS (Universal Speakers Simulator) technology neutralizes the “speaker load sensing” function of some OEM sources.

Each output channel features:

  • All-Pass, High-Pass, Low-Pass Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley or Bessel crossover filter with 6dB to 30dB oct. with 6dB steps with phase inversion
  • 15-pole parametric equalizer
  • Time delays up to 471.2 cm (185.5 in.)
Remote-control-App-for-Android-and-Apple

Remote control App for Android and Apple allows you to manage the main functions of the DSP (Volume Master, Volume Sub) from the mobile device, without using one of the preset input trigger leads. 

You can freely combine the six inputs on the eight outputs using a practical matrix, or rely on one of the predefined presets.
