JBL Announces MS-8 Integration Digital Processor
JBL Announces Availability of MS-8 Integration Digital Processor
June 2010 - Harman International Industries, Inc. has announced the launch of its new JBL MS-8 integration digital processor. The MS-8 is designed to be added to an existing system to improve its sound. At the heart of the MS-8 is a digital signal processor that maximizes frequency response, bass performance, dynamics, clarity, detail and stereo imaging in a car from any combination of factory-installed or aftermarket components.
Car audio enthusiasts can change the sound to suit their preferences by using its display and wireless controller. In addition, the MS-8 includes a step-by-step, menu-driven calibration based on input from an included binaural microphone headset. It optimizes up to eight input channels, producing a flat-response and full-bandwidth signal. It also offers sound-optimization technology, such as digital sound processing (DSP) equalization and DSP time correction, which automatically improves tonal accuracy and compensates for the characteristics of the carís existing speakers, electronics and cabin interior, according to the company.
Features include a graphic equalizer with 31 bands that allow users to override automatic equalization to suit personal taste. Its memory stores calibration settings for up to four seating positions. Its digital crossover function allows precise, user-selectable crossover points and crossover slopes for up to eight separate outputs. The companyís Logic 7 technology is designed to create a 5.1- or 7.1-channel surround-sound experience from two-channel source material.
Its preamplifier controls manage system volume, subwoofer volume, left/right balance, front/rear fader and bass/mid/treble tone controls, and override DSP equalization, time correction and Logic 7 processing. It can store up to five custom settings for one-button recall. Its LCD display includes five-line, 128x64-pixel screen that displays setup menus and operation status. Other features include onboard 20 Watt x 8 amplifier, eight-channel preamp-level and speaker-level inputs and outputs, and full-range stereo auxiliary input. The JBL MS-8 system integration digital processorís selling price is $799 and available now.
