The HELIX P SIX DSP MK2 6-channel power amp delivers not only powerful power and an 8-channel DSP processor of the latest generation with enormous computing power, but sets new standards in the amplifier technology with the new “Ultra HD Class D” technology.
With a sampling rate of 96 kHz and an audio frequency response that is extended to over 40 kHz, it raises the bar not only in terms of sound quality. Because versatility was also at the top of this amp. Thanks to the HELIX Extension Card (HEC) slot, the P SIX DSP MK2 can be expanded with additional interfaces such as a Bluetooth ®Audio Streaming Module or a High Resolution Audio USB Sound Card . Two processed RCA preamp outputs also allow the connection of additional amplifiers.
The configuration of the internal 64-bit DSP is made easy with the professional yet user-friendly DSP PC-Tool software and leaves nothing to be desired with its numerous setting options.
The concentrated engineering know-how of the P SIX DSP MK2 comes in the HELIX-typical, clear design, which meets all requirements for a quick and easy integration.
Ultra HD Class D amplifier technology with 96 kHz sampling rate
The P SIX DSP MK2 is the first class D amplifier with integrated signal processor, which operates with the double sampling rate of 96 kHz. As a result, the audio bandwidth is not limited to 22 kHz as usual, but allows an extended frequency response up to 40 kHz. However, the higher sampling rate places significantly higher demands on all components in the device. Only the use of the very latest chip generation both in the DSP and in the power amplifiers makes this possible. The result: a quality of sound that was previously unknown to Class D amplifiers.
Ready for 24 V
The P SIX DSP MK2 is not only suitable for use with 12 V electrical systems, but can also be operated without any changes or settings on the device, even on 24 V electrical systems, such as are common in the truck sector , The performance data of the P SIX DSP MK2 are identical for both operating modes. Thus, maximum flexibility for all conceivable purposes is given.
Intelligent high-level input
Modern, factory-installed car radios are becoming increasingly intelligent in terms of diagnosing the connected speakers. If an amplifier is connected to the radio instead, it usually results in error messages up to the elimination of individual functions (such as faders).
The new Advanced Diagnostics Error Protection (ADEP) circuitry eliminates all of these problems without unduly stressing the radio’s speaker outputs at high levels.
Power Save Mode
The Power Save mode is activated in the basic settings of the DSP PC-Tool software. It allows to drastically reduce the power consumption of the P SIX DSP MK2 (and possibly additionally connected amplifiers) if no input signal is present for more than 60 seconds. As soon as the “Power Save Mode” is active, the internal amplifier stages of the P SIX DSP MK2 as well as the Rem Out are switched off, significantly reducing the power consumption. The amplifier returns to its normal operating state within 2 seconds as soon as a music signal is present at its input. The switch-off delay can be varied or completely deactivated via the DSP PC-Tool software.
The power supply in the HELIX P SIX DSP MK2 amplifier ensures the internal power supply even with short-term drops down to 6 volts. This ensures that the HELIX P SIX DSP MK2 remains fully functional even when the engine is started.
Automatic Digital Signal Detection
Switching between the analog and the digital input is signal-controlled. As soon as an audio signal is detected at the optical input, the amplifier switches over to this input. In the DSP PC-Tool software, this function can be deactivated or, alternatively, a manual control can be selected via an optionally available remote control.
