JBL MS-8 integration digital processor auto-tunes your car stereo [Video]

JBL has launched their MS-8 integration digital processor, a $799 system that, the company claims, can tune your factory-fit (or aftermarket) in-car audio setup to produce audio of the sort even the designers couldn't envisage.  Designed to install in the trunk, with only the dash-mounted display on show, the JBL MS-8 uses a binaural microphone headset to automatically adjust frequency response, bass performance, dynamics, clarity, detail and stereo imaging.

Infinity and JBL subs help decrease your home theater’s clutter

Infinity and JBL subs help decrease your home theater’s clutter

By going wireless they are not only easier to install, but easier to move and repostion, and like I said, its less clutter in your home theater. Now they haven’t quite figured out the whole wireless power thing, so you will still need an outlet to plug the sub into, but an outlet is probably far easier to come by than it is to install audio wiring to wherever you want your sub.

The downside, other than the price of each, is that they run on the 2.4GHz frequency which means wireless devices galore have a chance of causing interference. There are however four channels to choose from which combined with the channel selection on the other 2.4GHz devices in your house should make it easier to find an interference free signal.
