ZAPCO HDSP-Z16V 8 Channel Gold Digital Sound Processor

ZAPCO HDSP-Z16V 8 Channel Gold Digital Sound Processor


The ZAPCO HDSP-Z16V 8 Channel Gold Digital Sound Processor is an amazingly attractive, tastefully constructed Digital Sound Processor that reproduces quality sound from the get go.


The HDSP-V Series is an evolving product and any number of features will be added as new technologies become available. JC Installs keeps a regular eye out for updates at this page to keep the HDSP current and is impressed with the latest iterations from ZAPCO.  This unit is truly an audiophiles wet dream.

    This eight (8) channel DSP operates at 96 kHz.


    The arrangement options of digital and analog inputs and outputs (and processing speed) allow you to choose exactly the setup you need. 


    The units HDSP processor is the first step in Zapco’s quest to produce the perfect signal processor. The HDSP’s modular design is critical to that quest, allowing ZAPCO to continue their research and development efforts, while providing you the knowledge that your HDSP can be easily upgraded as new advances are made. For example, ZAPCO is already working on a unique auto-tuning system that considers everything from phase to delay to equalization to provide an optimum listening experience to everyone in the room (or car), regardless of their seating position. All you’ll need is a software update and a microphone package.


    Many modern vehicles come with a stop start auto ignition function, this DSP has full support for the stop start function allowing sound to be reproduced regardless of the vehicles engine status in transit.
