ESX QUANTUM DSP: Sound Tuning re-defined

ESX QUANTUM DSP: Sound Tuning re-defined

The coming years at ESX will be all about sophisticated sound tuning: With Dominic Langenberg, one of the most innovative and competent sound engineers for digital sound enhancement was able to be won over, who brought the new ESX DSP generation to series production with great enthusiasm. The prelude to the new DSP (r)evolution from ESX are the two digital sound processors from the DIRECTION series. The finest selected components, optimally tuned and combined into an ingenious overall concept, perfectly adjustable down to the smallest details with the newly developed PC software, make sound enthusiasts click their tongues respectfully.

 

After the very successful start of the DIRECTION sound processors (EISA Award for D68SP), ESX heralds the next round with the QUANTUM QM66SP. The new 6-channel processor is integrated in a high-quality aluminum heat sink and comes up with even better standard equipment. Thanks to the integrated Bluetooth receiver, the App version of the ESX DSP Toolkit  can be used live and in real time from the smartphone - including HD Audio Streaming. The RC-DQ LCD remote control, which is available as an accessory, offers additional ease of use.Thanks to the latest state-of-the-art analog/digital converter from AKM Velvet Sound™, the sound processing of the Analog Devices™ 32 bit/295 MHz DSP chips takes place in the full HD audio range at 96 kHz. In addition to audiophile aspects, a smooth integration into modern vehicles was also considered. EPS PRO protective circuit and high-level inputs with auto turn-on (pluggable from 1-15 V or 15-40 V via jumper) as well as symmetrical RCA low-level outputs with 6 V/RMS are standard on board.

Musway M6v3 - 6-CHANNEL CLASS D AMPLIFIER WITH 8-CHANNEL DSP

Musway M6v3 - 6-CHANNEL CLASS D AMPLIFIER  WITH 8-CHANNEL DSP

The M6v3 ​​model can surely be seen as a new milestone in amplifier construction. It is barely imaginable that a fully grown class D amplifier works in this small housing, featuring six pairwise bridgeable outputs, each with 105 watts RMS per channel (at 2 Ω). A total of 630 Watts RMS are available. The compact dimensions are made possible by an elaborate 4-fold laminated board, which also effectively suppresses EMC interference due to the favorable topology - a must, especially for full-range Class D amplifiers.The centerpiece is the state-of-the-art DSP chip ADAU1452 from Analog Devices, which was fine-tuned by the Musway engineers and leaves no audiophile wishes unfulfilled. The amplifier finds its connection via a space-saving cable harness with ISO plugs, individual Plug+Play cable sets are also available. Useful additional features include soft-clipping to protect the electronics and speakers in 2 Ω operation and the newly developed high-level input with Error Protection System. When connected to an OEM factory radio the Error Protection System ensures that no functions are impaired or error messages are written into the vehicle memory.

HiFonics Zeus Sound Damping Material

HiFonics Zeus Sound Damping Material

The two ZEUS DOOR KITS ZDK1 and ZDK2 are complete sets with three components in the scope of delivery. This means that two complete doors can be perfectly insulated with Aluminum Butyl and Acoustic Foam. Both kits contain 4 panels of acoustic foam with a thickness of 7 mm and 2 panels of nubbed foam with a thickness of 15 mm. The ZDK1 contains 8 Aluminum Butyl mats of type 120 dB with a thickness of 1.8 mm, while the ZDK2 recommended for larger systems contains the same number of Aluminum Butyl type 140 dB with a thickness of 2.0 mm.

Small door loudspeakers or small underseat subwoofers do not stimulate the passenger cell or sheet metal to vibrate as much as comparatively full-blown 15 "subwoofers. New luxury vehicles may already have better insulation ex works than comparatively simpler or older vehicles. Since the purpose of use can be very different, HiFonics has different quality levels available depending on the strength of the system or requirements: With the HiFonics ZEUS 120dB Aluminum Butyl Sound Damping Mats, very good results can be achieved for most vehicles. If stronger audio components are used or if a higher level of insulation is to be achieved in principle, the even more attenuating Aluminum Butyl ZEUS 140dB is recommended. HiFonics recommends the ZEUS 160dB, which has the highest attenuation properties, for all those who want to let it "crack" in the vehicle or simply want to be on the safe side. It deadened sheet metal almost perfectly because it has an even better internal density and at the same time an even higher mechanical loss factor. Each pack contains 8 bendable and cut panels with a total area of ​​1.48 square meters, which are sufficient for two doors.
