Hertz S8 DSP

Growing interest in upgraded audio for marine and off-road applications has led to the design of this full-featured but miniature DSP unit from Hertz. The device features 6 high/low-level analog input channels, one digital coaxial input, and 8 output channels. With a 15-pole parametric equaliser and time alignment available on each channel, the possibilities are almost endless for ensuring that even in non-road car applications, audio is handled with great care. 24bit 96kHz capability ahas earned the S8 Hi Res status from the Japan Audio Society (JAS)

DSP management by bt app (iOS/ Android)
1. CONFIGURATOR mode Mainly it’ll allow the DSP tuning. You can manage every DSP functon through your smartphone/ tablet/PC/MAC. 2. DRC mode The BT device becomes a remote control by using the dedicated app with a simple graphical user interface. Manage volume level, SUB level, select different setup files, upload a new setup file.
Setup file sharing via bt Upload a setup file via BT through the BT APP when in “Configurator” or “DRC” mode.
