HELIX DSP ULTRA

Key facts:
- 96 kHz / 32 Bit
- TwinDSP Power
- 8 lowlevel inputs
- 8 highlevel inputs
- ADEP.3 circuit
- Optical input
- Coaxial input
- HEC slot
- 12 analog outputs
- ACO platform
- Input Signal Analyzer (ISA)
- Virtual Channel Processing (VCM)
- DSP Sound Effects (SFX)
- High Resolution capable
- 10 memory locations for sound setups
and more

Coming end of 2019

Wounder if it will have an algorithm for upmixing a center channel?

It does have an umpiring algorithm for the center channel. It is the same RealCenter algorithm they have used inch its introduction in the UP7BMW a year and a half ago. It is now in all DSPs that they release and in their newer versions of existing DSPs and DSP/amplifiers.

No built-in wifi? You'd think that they'd just built that into a top-of-the-line unit like this instead of requiring that external wifi "dongle". Wifi tuning is just *so* much nicer than stringing a USB cable!!

Never. From my experience across several hobbies, German engineering doesn't work that way. You always pay for add-ons and sometimes for even being able to make basic configuration changes you have to buy an add-on in order to gain access to change the setting.

It's always good stuff but their practices can get annoying.

Doug, since it is now publicly listed on Facebook, AND is using technology from over a Year & a Half ago, can you please now state the U.S. MAP or MSRP? ;)

Still has 8v preouts I assume?
Yes, according to the photo in the OP. Click on the photo and zoom in to full res and you can see the input adjustment trim pots. They go up to 8v on the low-level inputs (full counter-clockwise position).

It looks like it will come from the factory set at 4v.

So it does... I notice they have the FX button greyed-out right now.

The FX button only appears if you switch it into VCP (Virtual Channel Processing) mode. Once you do that, then you get the FX options again. The VCP setup is definitely different and will take some getting used to. :)

Anyone use the bass restore function on the newer helixs? I could use a bit sometimes on classic rock. I don't see it on the ultra

Got it.
Switched on the VCP Mode, and started playing with the I/O settings for it.
A slight learning curve, but once I figured it out, it all makes sense.

Now... I just need the hardware!

We expect a small batch of the ULTRA to arrive late this week. Unfortunately pricing has not yet been revealed to us, but will be available by then.
