A proud history of innovation

In 1979, the passion for high fidelity sound in the mobile environment led a group of technicians from different areas of the electronics industry,
to design the tools which could produce the perfect sound.
As in a handmade lute workshop, the founders of Audison selected the materials, experimented and listened to the results again and again,
letting their emotions recognize when the product was complete.
Today, like yesterday, Audison products are presented to the market only after they have fully met the
requirements of their creators and proved their absolute top-quality.

    Thesis TH 1.5 II violino

    With the TH 1,5 II violino, the Audison R&D team has reached a significant evolution; producing a speaker system that can “drain every last drop” from the Thesis amplifiers.

    Unique and groundbreaking: beyond the absolute.

    bit One HD FIR FIRMWARE RELEASE

    Improved acoustic quality with crossover filters and FIR equalizers of bit One HD:
    the phase behaviour is linear, free from rotations or indecisions. This also makes the use of filters with a very high slope (up to 48 dB / Oct) possible, without altering the phase response. Such a high slope for the filter enables the midrange and tweeters mounted on the a-pillar to work at lower frequencies without any issues with power handling, thus raising the emission front.

    bit Nove, the new Audison bit processor

    bit Nove is a powerhouse of technology fully dedicated to listening pleasure: since 2007, the year in which the bit One was first introduced, Audison has never stopped delivering innovation to the digital processors segment. The bit Nove was born from this unique know-how within the industry, the perfect tool to expand a car audio system maximizing its performance.

    Audison Full DA HD The next audio experience

    The emotions of a live performance in your car with Audison FULL DA HD. Enjoy the Next Audio Experience.

    Audison launches the #nextaudioexperience campaign to explain the advantages of Full DA HD technology, which opens the door to a new era of mobile audio reproduction, providing pure digital signal transfer from the source through the processor into the amplifiers, all in Hi-Res digital format.

    bit One HD

    After revolutionizing the car audio world with the bit One digital processor, thanks to continuous research in the digital domain, Audison now introduces the bit One HD, capable of processing hi-res audio signals. In the world’s most important recording and mastering studios, audio signal is digitally processed at a standard 24-bit/96 kHz resolution, to preserve every single nuance even after multiple processing (dynamic range compression, equalization, ambient sound effects etc.). Thanks to its “Istinto Innovativo”, Audison achieved the same audio quality as professional digital workstations for the car compartment. The bit One HD makes the most of Hi-Res files reproduced by an Audison bit Play HD, giving providing the ability to develop a Full DA HD chain. The audio signal is not subject to any down-sampling and is sent to Audison amplifiers equipped with AC/AD link in digital, preserving all the information of the Hi-Res digital file reproduced.

    Audison bit One HD wins the EISA AWARD 2016-2017

    With its bit One HD Audison opens up a new era in DSP, using the most powerful chipset to maintain the throughput of high-resolution audio at 96kHz/24-bit for optimum quality. Thanks to an automatic calibration process the bit One HD can synchronise the equalisation and time delays of signals coming from 12 different analogue inputs and can drive 13 output channels. For even higher sound quality, this can be configured to seven channels by applying Audison’s optional Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters. While a new generation of control software permits accurate system tuning this is only the beginning, as this forward-thinking processor uses an open-platform design that ensures its functions can evolve with new firmware and software upgrades.

    bit One won EISA Award In-Car Integration 2009-2010

    Integrating a top-level car audio system into a modern car can be a very difficult job. Or a fantastic adventure, if you choose an Audison bit One. Does not matter what kind of head unit you have, operating with up to 8 channels, the bit One can receive high or low level signals, even when pre-equalized, or digital inputs. The bit One will combine and process these inputs to give a perfect full range linear stereo signal. Doing it this way allows Audison to use the full power of a latest-generation sound processor chip. Using a PC, you can program the bit One to control 8 channels independently, including filtering, equalization and time alignment, to give analogue or digital outputs. Whatever your head unit, whatever your car, bit One gives you the means to build the system of your dreams.
