Here at Sound Depot and Performance, we are excited about the new AudioControl DM-810. This “black box” DSP processor will allow us to work digital audio magic in our clients’ vehicles and solve a wide variety of system issues, especially with premium factory systems that were difficult, if not impossible, before. This processor won an Innovations Award at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show.
Audio in the World of the AudioControl DM-810
The DM-810 lives in two worlds: the analog and the digital. You can input just about any signal from a premium factory head unit or RCA from an aftermarket deck. Some very sophisticated factory head units may be built in – and have other vehicle functions integrated with them that make them difficult to remove. They may also have time-aligned, crossed-over or equalized outputs that just won’t sound right simply by plugging them into an upgraded amp and new speakers.
The DM-810 converts this signal into a digital one that allows a wide variety of manipulation to correct all of these issues. AudioControl has software available for your PC, Android or iOS device that allows for digital summing of crossed-over signals, adjustment for time delays and restoring the signal to its original state to give you the best possible signal for your upgraded amplifiers and speakers. Then it converts this signal back to analog.
Lots of Options
There are eight channels for pre-amp or speaker level input, allowing you to connect to a sophisticated factory system. It even has two direct digital inputs and an “option port” designed to work with new hi-res audio players in the future. There are 10 channels of output, providing a lot of flexibility in designing your new system. All of your crossovers are built in with selectable slopes, there is a full 30-band EQ and there are time alignment functions to dial in a true high-end system.
