    I ended up with the DSR1 for something like 180$ for one NIB from someone who never used it. Great DSP with some bugs. Stupid how channels 7/8 are force summed to a sub but you could get 2 of them and still be better off price wise than a helix dsp

    Didn't that just come out?

    I really hope it lives up to expectations but I haven't seen many try it out yet so I dunno

    edit: nvm it's not out until 7/16

    I dont think Dayton has a bad product out. With DSPs its all about the software.

    That's exactly what I was getting at. If the software is bug-free and has all the features it's going to be a killer product - unless they bump the price up. Under $200 is the market for budget DSP's

    Ive bought a lot of dayton subs, speakers, tweets home audio gear and everything I have or have had has been excellent. And who places a 5 year warranty on theyre gear these days other than Dayton?

    I dont necessarily need one myself, but I wouldnt mind trying one out, especially as it is quite universal

    Re: Avoid PPI and Soundstream DSP's

    THAT is a KILLER! That dayton might be what I am looking for. And I like the Windows software option as well as the Bluetooth. Yea, the price is going to climb up to about $180, but out of the box, all you need is a Windows laptop, and Everyone can get access to an old Tablet windows based PC. You don't need anything fast to do the job. Hell, you can even use a wireless USB if you find a dongle that works. But in all, **** good deal.

    I think the only thing that really is missing is the autotune feature, or a mic input that does the calibration for you. But that's just on about every Consumer level deck out there and most of the time its just not quite as good as doing it by ear, or manually with other tools.

    5 YEAR WARRANTY? You GOTta be kidding. AMAZING VALUE AND DEAL!.

    From the website, it goes over the unit with some more detail.

    And its not a BAD looker either.


    But that BLUETOOTH Dongle.. JEEZ.. Its so ..."That's what your girlfriend says"


    The control knob is not to shabby either. Just don't see the point if you have the Bluetooth module. Once you set your DSP, its almost set and forget most of the time.



    Regardless, your going to need one of these for a clean install, and so it does not run into issues with the USB breaking or the dongle.


    This one might work better for the layout of the unit with the RCA's not getting in the way.


    Or do something Custom like Solder to the board, but it does not look like it is going to stick out more then some RCA cables.


    I have been using these for years in cars, and just made my own to go over Cat6 cable or Firewire cables since they are shielded the max.


    That way, you don't really run into fitment issues. Its one of the small reasons why I am more inclined to go with the Bare board MiniDSP options, and they do have a killer DSP for a good price.
    Actually, so far, the MiniDSP is still the value and flexibility leader.



    And the cool part is you can just hard wire it all, put it in a smaller kit box, or modify the one for $95 bucks, and call it a day.




    Either way, you get a great DSP, and at a great price. I have not heard of to many Failures of MiniDSP units either. And the PRICE is out of this world affordable. Not bad!

    Re: Avoid PPI and Soundstream DSP's

    I'm almost out of space in my car. I got so many things in my dash. 2 phones, a Asus tablet chromebook, and another cheap tablet to run RealRTA. Still, I think the REAL dsp route is the way to go. It would help with my speaker setup. Surprising I was able to make it sound so good for what I got just running mostly modified stock stuff. THat Reminds me I need to post a system diagram.
