Audison bit Nove

The Nove is a nine output signal processor offering a vast array of processing and sound shaping possibilities. From Linkwitz-Riley and Butterworth crossovers with variable slopes (6-24dB/Oct). 10-band parametric equalisation on each channel with +/- 12dB of gain and variable Q. Dedicated bass and subwoofer equalisation is provided with automatic soft clipping to reduce the danger from destructive distortion. The unit feature two optical inputs and 24-bit D/A/ and A/D convertors. The processor will accept 24-bit word length digital audio signals with sampling frequencies up to 196kHz.
Provided with a full suite of software for fine control of all parameters.

Description

bit Nove
THE NEW AUDISON BIT PROCESSOR

bit Nove is a powerhouse of technology fully dedicated to listening pleasure: since 2007, the year in which the bit One was first introduced, Audison has never stopped delivering innovation to the digital processors segment. The bit Nove was born from this unique know-how within the industry, the perfect tool to expand a car audio system maximizing its performance.

iDatalink Maestro AR compatibility

When bit Nove is installed into a compatible vehicle using the iDatalink Maestro AR (sold separately), the user can enjoy a perfect integration with factory installed navigation, advanced safety systems, voice-controlled hands-free and infotainment. (Only for North America)

Input Connectivity
Equipped with 6 high (3 ÷ 20V) and low (1.2 ÷ 8V) level inputs, the bit Nove can be used with any type of aftermarket and OEM source. The auxiliary RCA input (0.3 ÷ 5V) is perfect to connect your smartphone or tablet to the bit Nove providing the highest possible quality. The advanced PC software sums up the channels belonging to the same front and de-equalizes the OEM source frequency response in a few simple steps. There are also two optical digital inputs with a maximum accepted resolution of 192 kHz/24 bit to simultaneously connect an Audison bit DMI to the bit Nove (taking the digital audio from the car MOST bus) and the Hi-Res bit Play HD player.

USS – Universal Speakers Simulator
Thanks to the integration of the USS technology, the bit Nove can also be connected to headunits featuring the “speaker load detection” circuit that would otherwise mute the audio signal output.

Output Connectivity
The bit Nove features nine output channels on RCA connectors providing a large number of active multi-amplified configurations, ensuring a wide range of set-up options to the installer. For each channel, the powerful DSP provides: a 10-pole parametric equalizer allowing for optimal adjustments, a 68 steps frequency crossover, Butterworth or Linkwitz-Riley type filters with slopes from 6 to 24 dB/Oct and a time-delay line.
