      A 19" rack-mount processing unit, capable of generating a 5.1 surround signal from the SPM 8000 microphone unit, at sampling rates of up to 96 kHz. The SPM 8000 algorithm is precisely aligned with the SPM 8000 microphones, and offers a well-structured interface with user-definable presets. A web interface provides real-time access to all surround parameters like gain of the individual channels, front and surround focus, surround delay, filters and compressor, limiter and the treble boost.
