Innovative technology

Advanced DSP with Intrinsic Correction ensures great audio by removing the natural audio variables generated by the CP8’s components. It also protects the drivers from damage and avoids sound distortion. This means you’ll enjoy accurate, musical sound from the CP8. It also means the CP8 will sound its best even when pushed to the limit. Every time you crank up the CP8, the lows will be tight, vocals will be clear and highs will be clean.
