The Brax DSP Processor is the most advanced digital signal processor which is – without any doubt – redefining both sound quality and functionality.

The “heart” is made up of no less than three (3!) Sigma350 series fixed-point 64-bit audio DSPs with 3.6 billion MAC operations per second processing capability. This allows the entire system to be run at a native 192 kHz sampling rate, allowing the audio frequency range to be expanded to 80 kHz. In terms of connection, the BRAX DSP marks the beginning of a new age. Its modular design allows it to set inputs and outputs as analog, digital, or a combination of the two. A mechanical notion completes the “total work of art,” giving the appearance of immortality at first look.

Main Features:

 

  • Three extraordinary powerful “fixed point” Sigma350 audio DSP’s with 64 Bit resolution and a total of 3.6 billion MAC operations per second calculating power
  • State-of-the-art Asahi Kasei “Velvet Sound” A/D and D/A converters with a native resolution of 32 Bit
  • 192 kHz sample rate for ultra High-Res audio bandwidth up to 80 kHz
  • Benchmark specifications for e.g. signal-to-noise ratio and total harmonic distortion, close to measuring limits
  • Modular 8-channel in / 12-channel out concept with exchangeable stereo analog or digital input / output modules for covering all possible system configurations
  • 4 stereo input modules with either analog RCA / Cinch and Highlevel or digital optical / coaxial SPDIF input
  • 6 stereo output modules with either analog RCA / Cinch or digital optical / coaxial SPDIF outputs
  • Output modules with switchable sampling rate of 48, 96 or 192 kHz
  • Analog output modules with variable filter characteristics and switchable output voltage of 2, 4 or 8 Volts
  • Muting of the analog output stages via relays with gold-plated contacts
  • Additional stereo SPDIF input (optical / coaxial) as well as a Link module for system extensions
  • Double BRAX Extension Card slot (BEC) for optional input / output modules like Bluetooth® Audio Streaming, High Resolution Audio Streaming via USB etc.
  • Unique DSP Sound Effects such as the “Augmented Bass Processing” which dynamically optimizes the bass response of the subwoofer, the “StageXpander” that significantly widens the stereo perspective, the “RealCenter” function, which allows a perfectly focussed sound staging for both driver and co-driver and much more
  • Incomparably complex power supply concept with a total of 55 voltage regulators and start-stop capability
  • DiSAC (Digital Signal Analog Controlled) volume control in combination with BRAX MX4 PRO
  • ACO – Advanced 32 Bit CoProcessor for all control and communication tasks
    • 10 internal memory locations for sound setups
    • Setup switching within milliseconds
    • High-speed data transfer and improved usability
  • Solely made from the very best components with lowest tolerances, fitted in a rock-solid aluminum housing
  • Eight-fold layer main PC board for ultra-low impedance signal and power supply transmission
  • Analog audio signal transmission solely on the in- and output modules

DSP Features:

 

  • The “RealCenter” feature is an algorithm, developed by Audiotec Fischer, that emphasizes the music information which is present in both the left and right front channel to create an unique center signal
  • Audiotec Fischer’s proprietary “Augmented Bass Processing”, consisting of the two revolutionary sound features “Dynamic Bass Enhancement” and “SubXpander”, has been especially developed to dramatically improve the bass reproduction of subwoofers
  • Depending on the speaker arrangement in the vehicle, a more or less wide stereo sound stage can be created on the front seats. A center speaker may limit the spatial reproduction of the music additionally
  • Properly adjusted (and therefore selectable in three steps) the feature adds additional harmonics in the upper frequency range – this is especially useful if the original speakers lack some brilliance in the treble response
