BMW-Sound1 Plug and Play 5 Channel power upgrade

MatchSKU: BMW-Sound1

Sale price£499.99



5-channel micro amplifier with integrated 7-channel DSP.

As small as a cigarette packet but a giant in performance and function: the brand-new M 5DSP amplifier provides huge power and cutting edge technology in a remarkably small housing.

Five channels, a powerful 7-channel “fixed point” Audio DSP with 56 Bit resolution and proprietary Class GD technology predestine the amplifier for ultimate car audio performance. Its minimal dimensions as well as its high efficiency and low heat dissipation allow unprecedented space saving and hidden installation concepts, that were not previously possible.

The M 5DSP is featuring two power modes: it can be driven optionally in “HighPower” mode for maximum performance or in “MidPower” mode with reduced output power and lower power consumption for Plug & Play applications.

A subwoofer output, a remote output and a freely configurable 2-channel PreOut for hooking up additional amplifiers offers further connectivity.

Thanks to Audiotec Fischer’s DSP PC-Tool software the integrated DSP can easily configured to individual requirements. The scope of delivery includes a connection cable and an adapter cable to dock a MATCH Plug & Play or a conventional subwoofer.

  • 5-channel Class GD amplifier with integrated 7-channel DSP
  • Very compact dimensions and low heat dissipation thanks to maximum efficiency
  • Two power options: “HighPower” mode for maximum performance and “MidPower” mode with reduced output power and low power consumption for Plug & Play applications
  • Extremely powerful “fixed point” audio DSP with 56 Bit resolution
  • Optical input in SPDIF format with sampling rates between 6 and 96 kHz
  • Automatic remote switch
  • Smart highlevel input with ADEP circuit
  • Freely configurable 2-channel PreOut for the connection of additional amplifiers
  • Subwoofer connection cable for MATCH Plug & Play and conventional subwoofers included in delivery
  • Control input for optional cable remote control.


Special features:

Smart highlevel input
The latest generation of OE car radios incorporates sophisticated possibilities of diagnosing the connected speakers. If an usual amplifier will be hooked up failure messages and loss of specific features (e.g. fader function) are often the result - but not with the M 5DSP. The new ADEP circuit (Advanced Diagnostics Error Protection) avoids all these problems without loading the speaker outputs of the OE radio during high volumes unnecessarily.

Two power options
The M 5DSP has two power modes - the “HighPower” mode for maximum performance and “MidPower” mode with reduced output power and lower power consumption for Plug & Play applications.

Automatic Digital Signal Detection
Switching from analog input to the digital input is done automatically as soon as a signal is detected on the Optical Input. This feature can be deactivated in the DSP PC-Tool software. Alternatively you can use an optional remote control for manual switching between analog and digital inputs.

Power Save Mode
The “Power Save Mode” is incorporated in the basic setup of the DSP PC-Tool software. It allows to significantly reduce the power consumption of the M 5DSP (or any additional connected amplifier) once there’s no input signal for more than 60 seconds. Please note that in many up-to-date cars with “CAN” or any other internal bus structures it may happen that the car radio (and therefore the M 5DSP as well) remains “invisibly” turned on for up to 45 min. after leaving the car! Once the “Power Save Mode” is active the output stages of the M 5DSP and its remote output will be turned off, thus reducing current
draw to less than 250 mA. The amp will turn again to full operation within 2 sec. if a music signal is applied. It is possible to either modify the turn-off time of 60 sec. or completely deactivate the “Power Save Mode” via the DSP PC-Tool.
