I was able to compensate for some of my muting issues by lowering the gain on my front stage amp. On talk radio and other lower output music the dayton was muted and when I turned the HU up enough to unmute it was too loud for normal listening. Factory HU high level full freq inputs.

I lowered my amp gain a bit, obviously this fixed the problem but my gain is now set based on the dayton's muting and not solely on my amp as before so I lost a bit of clean db at higher volume.

I wish there was a way to adjust the muting characteristics. I cant find much info on this, doesnt seem to be a common problem.

Maybe it's not giving enough of an output signal to the dsp?

So, your using the signal sense and it is not turning on till its really loud? Could you run a acc wire to the unit and use the remote in for turn on?
I have remote turn on. It must be something with my head unit. It comes on fine, but something is auto muting when output drops.

I used the Dayton DSP for a while in my truck and it never dropped out like that. Do you have a multimeter? If so, measure the voltage at the RCAs. There will be a low voltage if there is output. then you will be able to tell which device is turning off.

I play CD quality and hi res tracks from my iPhone from Amazon music HD. This is out on the lightning port to a Pioneer DMH-2660nex.

I have a 408 that I haven’t installed yet because my build changed directions and went 3 way passive, but that might change some day. I might sell the unit if I get a unsavory answer to my question.

My question is, will I still get the same CD/ hi res quality when using the 408? I have read that it has a lower bit rate? Compared to other DSPs.

The Dayton 408 dsp samplingrate is.24-bit/48 kHz. So better that cd quality 16bit/44kHz.
The top dsps support 32bit/384kHz. But implementation is more important than samplingrate, so you shouldn't judge DSP's only on samplingrates.
Dayton 408 is analog in and out. So for digital sources audio get converted from digital to analog before entering the dsp. The dayton then converts from analog to digital and back to analog. Compared to a dsp with digital input this extra conversions inevitable cause some loss of sq. But modern dacs are very good at converting so it's not a big deal.
I would say the dayton's sq compares quite well with cd quality. But then again cd quality also variates from on implementation to another...
