With the two processors QL810SP and QL812SP, ESX shows what real high-end DSPs can do. Even the equipped components are the finest: not only that audiophile 32-bit converters from AKM's 5-series were installed, two of the ADAU1452 and thus the best processors from Analog Devices are used. This is exactly where the wheat is separated from the chaff: Conventional DSPs usually only have one DSP core. However, if a DSP has many channels and the corresponding equipment, computing power becomes scarce. Not so with the new ESX top models, on the contrary. The two QL-DSPs have so much reserve that they can easily process not only 12 channels, but the developers also implemented the revolutionary ESX Expert Staging Equalizer with balance and level function, which enables further refinements in fine tuning, in addition to numerous functions.
A powerful ARM Cortex® M4 High Performance CPU with 240 MHz and internal 1024 kB flash memory takes care of command processing. This is the only way to work in real time with maximum performance. With the new QL812SP, ESX is now also cementing its high standards in the area of high-end DSPs: In the test review in the specialist magazine Car & Hifi 3/2022, the QL812SP was so convincing that the test editors not only classified it as a highlight, but also immediately as the best DSP "below 2000 Euros". This is outstanding insofar as it is only available for 1000 euros.
Test conclusion: „With the QL812SP, ESX has made a big splash. It leads the way with its finest hardware and the new software is a big step forward with powerful audio capabilities. If you add the generous equipment including Bluetooth and APP, the QL812SP for sound freaks is the most attractive DSP on the market below 2000 Euros.“ (Elmar Michels, Test Editor)
