    A few months back German amplifier virtuoso Helix answered the call for a quality mid-level amplifier that was not only affordable, but also incorporated a serious processing suite and offered copious amounts of clean power. Given its rich heritage in this realm the outcome was hardly a surprise; it was obvious to all and sundry that the abilities of the modestly priced M FOUR DSP would dictate it be a game changer. Nonetheless even Helix was caught unawares as to just how popular these amplifiers would be, with the entire first production run selling out worldwide within mere weeks. Indeed, one of the only suggestions audiophiles could offer for its betterment was the addition of another two channels.

    Another couple of channels you ask? Done and done.

    Hovering around the $1299 region; the M SIX DSP is the larger sibling of its four-channel compeer. Far more than just another six-channel amplifier; it's comparatively small footprint of 50mm x 154mm x 320mm belies it's true potential as not only a serious powerhouse but also a comprehensive control centre. It offers a myriad of highly processed channels within its software suite in addition to outputting a generous 100 watts of continuous power per channel at either four or two ohm, all with exceptional ancillary specifications. It's without doubt the new M SIX DSP will set pulses amongst the competition racing, though not in a pleasant way. For further background information, full feature explanations plus a rundown of the technical specifications please visit the Helix website, else shoot us an email. Regarding availability; they're due to hit our shores mid to late November, at which point they'll be available through our webstore here.
