Interesting.

From the "Specifications" Section on their website:

"Crossovers - Phase Correct AP/HP/LP/BP all channels"

Does this mean that the xover filters don't induce phase shift? FIR?

Still only 8 channels????? Smh. This is not competing with others in the same price range. But I’m glad it’s finally out.

PS8 indicates 8channels.
I'm sure PS16 will be dropping soon.
Either way, the feature updates i like a lot and having full control of the dsp from the PSC controller is what i like the most.

I got to see the Beta software last year at CES. I think there is a lot of potential in the new DSP. I'm interested to see how the upmixer works. I tried to download and install the software, but got the following error message on my Windows 7 machine.

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

Interesting. I installed it on my windows 7 box without issues this afternoon.

Are you sure you have permissions and UAC is turned off.?

Does this thing do stereo to 5.1 upmixing?

I like the fact that it is Maestro AR compatible. For me, that is the only way to integrate into my factory HU. Aftermarket is not an option.
Same here.

I'm wondering who designed their upmixing algorithm

Still curious about the "phase-correct" crossovers:

"Next, the crossover section provides access to Phase Correct and channel-linkable Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley, Bessel, Variable-Q and four different choices of Chebyshev response filters. The crossover slopes are adjustable to 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 26, 42 or 48 dB/Octave steps (depending on the filter type selected) and can be set at any frequency from 20 Hz to 22kHz in 0.1 Hz increments. "

Does this mean 0 phase rotation from the HP/LP filters?

The LR crossovers are amplitude correct when using 24 dB / octave slope This means that their amplitudes sum to 0 dB at all frequencies when the crossover frequencies are the same. If you invert the phase (in the delay tab) then the 12 dB / octave crossovers are amplitude correct.

Basically, a Butterworth filter acts like a Butterworth filter. They are "Correct" to their original designs. Don't mistake this as being some kind of "Phase Linear" or non-phase shifting crossover.
