I found this review. It's not too detailed, but seems to be the Russian branded equivalent of the DSP-88R.

Thanks guys. still trying to get the hang of tuning and now I have another button to play with? great. I can finally just hop in the truck without having to unplug or plug something in or deal with fatiguing highs. I can really listen and critique from song to song and get this thing dialed in. got to give a shout out to the ML 1600's, couldn't have stumbled on a better deal than I got on these.

Tacoma, can you tell me where you got this DSP for $200? This toy looks too good to pass up

All - I've been researching the Harmony and DSP-88R, including running the software applications in offline mode and can't find an answer to this:

How are the four "CD" speaker level inputs (FL, FR, RL, RR) connected into the eight output channels (A thru H)? Are they summed as equal inputs to all the processing channels?

Let me answer for you, since we were talking about the Harmony unit.

You must have it connected, it appears. It claims to be optional but also appears to be an important connected item, when it comes to how this unit works with storing and recalling files.

You won't need to access it very often though. You could make it semi-buried, like in the glove box or something if you want.

This looks like the perfect fit for my build...
So, the consensus is that this is a worthwhile entry level DSP?
No difference between Harmony and PPI other than the case?

I must say, I've worked with a client who bought one of these, and it was endless problem after problem. The interface is needlessly complex and saving is not automatic, meaning you must remember this important step or lose all your work.

the low level output of the rca jacks is a serious problem, it seems to create noise, and even adding a line driver after this unit just amplified the noise. The controller is a nice addition and actually makes this unit pretty cool, but the lack of support from ppi as well as the build quality and flexibility makes this a hard pass for me.

The unit we installed had wiring harness issues, to the point that half the time the amplifiers didn't turn on hooked into the remote output, and we soon replaced this unit with a rf 360.3.

all in all I'd call this one a pass, which sucks because I had high hopes for it.

At one point I was considering this unit. I ended up going with the DEQ.8. I had read about the issues people had with this unit. The DEQ.8 has been easy to use & no issues with it. I just picked up a controller for it....plan on installing that soon.

Bought the harmony but had problems so returned it. Got the 88R and things have been fine. No noise, no saving issues. Works as it should and only hiccup I've had is the application crashing when I keep it open between tuning sessions, like if you keep the app open and take your laptop inside, take it out to the car again the next day and plug in the 88r, the application will crash so you have to restart the pc software each day or each session you plug it in.

OK. Sounds pretty risky. MiniDSP it is. Thanks!
