Solus NX

… featuring the same processing power and delay memory as Symetrix’ Radius, Prism, and Edge in a standalone DSP …

Solus NX 4x4 Solus NX 8x8 Solus NX 16x8 and Composer with ARC-WEB

Three audio input/output options.  Solus NX 4×4 (4 in, 4 out), Solus NX 8×8 (8 in, 8 out), Solus NX 16×8 (16 in, 8 out). All three models feature front panel display of system status and analog audio levels with use of single push-button to navigate menus.

Powerful, efficient DSP configured using award winning Composer CAD design software.*  Route, process, and control audio in nearly unlimited ways serving countless applications. Eliminating the need for multiple software applications, all Symetrix open-architecture DSPs are programmed using Composer. Learn more about Symetrix Composer Here.

Multiple end user control options.  Solus NX DSPs can be controlled from Symetrix ARC wall panels including the universal mount ARC-3, the virtual ARC-WEB, Symvue – a custom Windows® runtime control interface, third-party Ethernet equipped touch panels, or a combination of any or all of the above.

Transparency.  An embedded web server displays analog I/O levels, diagnostics, and hosts the ARC-WEB control interface. The server is accessible from any networked smart phone, tablet, or computer by simply entering into the browser’s address field Solus NX’ local LAN or publicly accessible IP address, or its fully qualified domain name.
