The HELIX DSP.3 8 Channel Digital Signal Processor gives superb sound quality with 64 Bit audio DSP and throughout sophisticated signal processing with 96 kHz sampling rate and native 32 Bit resolution.

The DSP.3 has our exclusive DSP sound features such as “Augmented Bass Processing,” “StageXpander” and “RealCenter,” which provide you new ways to adjust your audio system. It has the new 32-bit ACO (Advanced CoProcessor) platform, which is extremely powerful.

Main Features:

 

  • Extremely powerful “fixed point” Audio DSP with 64 Bit resolution and 1.2 billion MAC operations per second
  • AD and DA signal converters from AKM with a native resolution of 32 Bit
  • High Resolution audio bandwidth up to more than 40 kHz for unrivalled sound quality
  • 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
  • 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
  • InputEQ and ISA (Input Signal Analyzer) for easy analysis and compensation of input signals
  • HELIX Extension Card slot (HEC) for system add-ons like Bluetooth®Audio Streaming, High Resolution Audio Streaming via USB etc.
  • Smart highlevel input with ADEP.3 circuit and Auto Turn-On function
  • Start-Stop capability down to 6 V supply voltage
  • Optimal signal path and power supply for further improved sound quality
  • “Ground lift” switch to avoid ground loops
  • Easiest configuration via the intuitive DSP PC-Tool V4 software
4

Special Features:

 

  • 96 kHz sampling rate – The HELIX DSP.3 allows to handle all signals with the doubled sampling rate of 96 kHz.
  • ACOAdvanced 32 Bit CoProcessor – The HELIX DSP.3 incorporates an extraordinary powerful 32 Bit CoProcessor of the latest generation for all monitoring and communication tasks,both internally and externally.
  • Smart highlevel input ADEP.3 – The new ADEP.3 circuit (Advanced Diagnostics Error Protection, 3rd Generation) avoids all possible problems without loading the speaker outputs of the OE radio during high volumes unnecessarily.
  • StartStop capability – The switched power supply of the HELIX DSP.3 assures a constant internal supply voltage even if the battery’s voltage drops to 6 Volts during engine crank.
  • Power Save Mode – It allows to significantly reduce the power consumption of the amplifiers that are connected to the HELIX DSP.3 once there’s no input signal present for more than 60 seconds.
  • Automatic Digital Signal Detection – Switching from analog input to the digital input is done automatically as soon as a signal is detected on the Optical Input.
