UTX-M08S Audio Digital Media Receiver with Bluetooth and Dual USB

The UTX-M08S is designed for audiophiles who demand the ultimate sound experience. Supporting 96 kHz/24bit file formats natively, as well as FLAC, APE, DSD, WAV, AAC, WMA, MP3, M4A, you can enjoy your music from any kind of source.

The UTX-M08S has been designed with a unique split structure concept to allow greater installation flexibility for a wider range of vehicles — seamless integration with the vehicle’s OEM systems is facilitated through steering wheel control support and navi-mix function, which allows attenuation of the audio source when there is an incoming navigation instruction.

Furthermore, with the addition of an Alpine DSP (sold separately), the UTX-M08S can perform as a remote commander allowing full DSP control from the unit.

The UTX-M08S combines its unique “Add-in” design concept and high installation versatility with amazing sound quality capabilities through Hi-Res certified audio, to deliver a rich and all-round incredible audio experience for even the most discerning audiophile.

A unique high-end design that suits a multitude of installation applications

Perfect for stealth, vintage or exotic vehicle applications the stunning 2.4-inch TFT display controller has a slim profile which can be mounted virtually anywhere and for bespoke installations the included flush mount bezel can be utilised. The black box can be installed into a 1-DIN space or hidden away in a glove-box compartment or other discrete location such as under a seat or dashboard within a distance limited to the 2.5mtrs controller display cable length.

CD Standard Sampling Rate

CD standard provides excellent  sound quality with a sample rate 16Bit/44.1kHz and a frequency range typically 20Hz~20kHz. 

Hi-Res Sample Rate (192kHz/24Bit)

Hi-Res Audio has remarkable high definition with sample rates up to 24Bit/192kHz and an extended frequency range 20Hz~40kHz.

Hi-Res Audio sound quality exceeding CD, a realistic and high-definition sound experience faithful to the original studio recording

The Hi-Res Audio certification is the industry benchmark for which has been standardised through JAS (Japan Audio Society). In summary, it is the collaboration of digital processes and formats that allow the encoding and playback of high-definition music files which require higher sampling rates and wider frequency dynamic range compared to what is found on typical CDs.

Hi-Res Audio encompasses the playback of high-resolution music such as FLAC, WAV or APE files that contain high sampling rates of 24Bit/192kHz (above the CD standard 16Bit/44.1kHz). These audio files can be reproduced with high fidelity sound via the UTX-M08S and companioned with Hi-Res Audio certified speakers and amplifiers.

Listening to Hi-Res Audio allows you to feel every emotion and immerse in the realistic nuances and fine details of your favourite artist’s original studio performance which is reproduced in high-definition sound. Furthermore, Hi-Res Audio has absolutely no distortion and incredible dynamics for an authentic and exhilarating audiophile listening experience.

Never miss a turn with the Navi Mix function

Vehicles equipped with a factory navigation system and integrated vehicle controls often cannot be changed. The UTX-M08S keeps your OEM system intact by allowing it to be integrated with the OEM system for pure high-end sound and additional functions such as Bluetooth (4.0) for audio and music streaming. Plus, the auxiliary input with ‘nav mix’ lets you hear voice guidance from the factory navigation system.

A unique high-end design with a seamless and versatile installation

The UTX-M08S has been designed in a way that provides you greater installation flexibility, allowing the output line between the commander and the black-box to be routed in multiple different directions to the user’s preference.

Supporting a multitude of music formats

Touted as the next big leap in in-car entertainment, Hi-Res audio allows you to hear the music in studio level quality – just as the artist always intended. The UTX-M08S supports FLAC, APE and DSD in Hi-Res, as well as a multitude of standard definition formats. Allowing you to listen to your favourite audio at a quality of your choosing.

External Control Inputs

Seamless integration with the vehicle’s OEM systems through steering wheel control support allows use of the factory audio system and the UTX-M08S direct from the steering wheel. Moreover, the UTX-M08S can also be used in conjunction with Alpine’s range of DSP’s (sold separately) to fully control audio output and settings direct from the unit.
