Both the 2-Way and 1-Way DualMirror technologies utilize a digital-to-digital HDMI converting circuit, which preserves the quality and integrity of the digital video signal coming into the headunit from a smartphone, and results in the highest possible quality picture reproduction on the receiver\'s screen.

Following up on its 14-model expansion of amplifiers in 2014, Dual is adding 2 new digital amps: the DA1504D 4-channel digital amplifier with 3000 Watts peak power (MSRP $269), and the DA1000D digital mono amplifier with 3000 Watts peak power (MSRP $269). Both amplifiers feature advanced SMD (surface mount device) circuitry for better current flow and reduced RF and EMI interference, high-level inputs with auto turn-on, low-level inputs, and variable low- and high-pass crossovers. The mono amp also features variable bass boost and subsonic filter, and includes a remote bass control. Both amplifiers are shipping in January 2015.

Wireless Smart EQ Processor for Smartphones:

The processor connects to up to 3 amplifiers and the receiver via RCA inputs/outputs, and features a signal sensing technology for auto amp remote turn-on. The Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP) feature allows the user to stream music from a smartphone directly to the Smart EQ. The processor is great for tailgating or sound competitions.
