The HELIX V EIGHT DSP 8-channel amplifier with integrated 10-channel signal processor opens up new horizons for car audio enthusiasts.

Its unique “Pure Class GD” concept and cutting-edge “fixed point” Audio DSP with 64 Bit resolution ensures extraordinary sound quality and loads of power. The V EIGHT DSP presents itself in the classic HELIX design language, a clean design with very compact dimensions allows for a quick and easy integration.

Main Features:

 

  • New “Pure Class GD” concept for outstanding sound quality combined with best possible efficiency
  • Cutting-edge, extremely powerful “fixed point” Audio DSP with 64 Bit resolution and 1.2 billion MAC operations per second
  • Eight speaker outputs with up to 120 Watts RMS into 2 Ohms
  • Two processed RCA outputs
  • Inputs: 6 x RCA, 6 x Highlevel with up to 20V RMS input sensitivity, optical SPDIF input
  • Smart highlevel input with ADEP circuit (Advanced Diagnostics Error Protection)
  • HELIX Extension Card slot (HEC) for additional input / output modules like Bluetooth® Audio Streaming, High Resolution Audio Streaming via USB etc.
  • Automatic Remote switch
  • Compact design with low heat dissipation thanks to extraordinary efficiency

Special Features:

 

  • Pure Class GD Amplifier Technology – Audiotec Fischers proprietary Pure Class GD concept takes the efficiency of conventional Class D amps to the next level. Pure Class GD amp outperforms conventional Class D designs in terms of sound quality by implementing a fully differential signal path and improved output filter design.
  • Smart High-Level Input – The new ADEP circuit (Advanced Diagnostics Error Protection) avoids all possible problems without loading the speaker outputs of the OE radio during high volumes unnecessarily.
  • Power Save Mode – It allows to significantly reduce the power consumption of the V EIGHT DSP and connected amplifiers once there’s no input signal present for more than 60 seconds.
  • Start-Stop Capability – The switched power supply of the HELIX V EIGHT DSP assures a constant internal supply voltage even if the battery’s voltage drops to 6 Volts during engine crank.
  • 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. This feature can be deactivated in the DSP PC-Tool software. Alternatively, you can use an optional remote control for manual switching between analog and digital inputs.
