The title states the subject of the thread. I have a 2013 Audi S5 prestige edition. I currently have an Image Dynamics ID MAx10, Arc Audio 1100.1, and AudioControl LC2i. I know very little about DSP. My Audi has the B&O system which I know is tied to the Audi MMi system. If I someone more experienced could educate me on a DSP and how to incorporate it into an audio system. I know there are many brands but if you could give me a budget I should be looking towards in a purchase. Thanks for all the help.

I have a 2017 A3 and am going through this myself. I'm assuming, based on the year that your system is running on the MOST50 which means you can use the MoBridge products which are a bit cheaper than the newer MOST150 integration units. Also, I believe they have one that has DSP built in.
What you'll want to do is get the integration unit and either use the built in DSP to control and then send the signals to your amplifiers or get an external DSP (Helix, Audiocontrol, Zapco, etc) and then feed it the signal and then send it to your amplifiers.
The integration unit should allow you to keep all/most of your stock controls, such as volume, balance (fade might disappear if you use an optical output from the integration unit) bass/treble controls as well as the door dings and what not.
