Harman International Industries has introduced the new JBL MS-8 integration digital processor. Nowadays, the wide majority of people drive cars that came with the stock audio system, namely speakers, CD player and an amplifier, at best. One of the most problematic things is choosing the appropriate components for upgrading and improving the sound in that environment, especially when facing the common wall full of speakers in specialized car audio shops.
"No one has ever invented an entirely new approach and product that transforms how consumers easily and non-invasively upgrade the music experience in their car. Literally, it is a box that encapsulates some of the most advanced technologies in the world. And with it, people will never experience music in their vehicle the same way again.” said Christopher M. Dragon, director of consumer and field marketing, Harman Consumer.
The situation gets even more complicated when it comes to the installation process that needs violating the car's interior for fitting and refitting the speakers. That is why the JBL MS-8 was developed by the engineers at the JBL division of Harman International. The digital processor is capable of handling up to eight channels, separately, as well as ensuring one of the richest audio equalizing architectures thanks to the 31-band graphic equalizer.
Other than that, the JBL MS-8 integration digital processor sports preamp controls for the system volume, volume balance, fader, tone controls and subwoofer volume. A very neat thing about it is the fact that it can override processing like DSP equalization and Logic 7, as well as various time corrections. Best for last, the JBL MS-8 integration digital processor also allows customers to perceive a 5.1 or even 7.1-channel audio experience, from just a stereo sound source. Will all that, the $799 just doesn't seem that high anymore.
