DSP stereo and RDS encoder with LCD display - new RDS features
The new CyberMax 5000+ DSP stereo and RDS encoder is a high-performance DSP stereo and RDS encoder utilizing several on-board DSP processors. Based on the SE5000 DSP+ (stereo encoder with Digital Signal Processor) with built-in compressor, limiter and balanced inputs, sharp 19KHz stereo carrier notch filter, pre-emphasis and sharp filters which all help to bring out the best sound. Perfect for a demanding, but cost-conscious broadcaster. CyberMax 5000+ series processor also gives you easy access to a wide array of RDS parameters. Features such as fast PS scrolling, RT, PTY, CT, AF, ECC, EON support, DSP filters and others all make this encoder a real bargain. This is your perfect gateway into the world of RDS!
Improved in v2 (May 2017):
- Extra audio input board
- Extra input limiter
- Extra input low pass filter
- ESD protected inputs
- Greatly improved ground-loop and hum immunity
New RDS features since June 2015:
- AF fix
- RT fix (no more trailing spaces)
- Added more ECC codes for all continents
- Option to turn CT, RT and EON off or on
- CT fix
- Easy PI display, shows composed PI code to make it easier to set
Compatibility with any RDS tuner out there is guaranteed. CyberMaxRDS 5000+ can also pick up MP3 ID tag from Winamp and transmit it as PS or radiotext on your RDS-enabled receiver. PS scrolling and scrolling external messages are supported as well. Jazler and ZaraSoft are already supported due to compatibility with the RDSMAX 30+. In short, if you're using your PC and WinAmp or Jazler to play your audio over the transmitter, now you'll finally be able to send the song and artist name to your listeners! Among other features are dynamic PS (also in stand alone mode, without a PC), PTY, TA, RT, CT, ECC, EON, AF, PI, M/S, TP and others. Connection to the PC is via standard RS232 cable or USB.
What is great about CyberMax 5000+?
- Perfect for any mono FM transmitter, several output levels can be selected with jumpers
- DSP technology enables extremely sharp filters and a very deep notch at 19KHz!
- Balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA audio inputs. This effectively eliminates annoying ground loops and hum.
- LC filtered MPX output signal.
- Built-in limiter, low pass filter and true compressor, all controlled via backlit LCD display and keys.
- Ready to use in 19" rack enclosure
- Extended number of RDS PS to 100 (more than that are not practical for the GUI, although there is lots of SRAM space left).
- Faster PS scrolling now possible
- Glitch-free under all conditions.
- Basic EON support
- TA jumper on the board, for easy and convenient TA toggle
- Full protocol details and basic windows driver are freely available if you want to experiment with the unit

RDS encoder will work independently from the PC (memory stays unchanged for at least 45 years after power-off, RTC 1-2 days).
If you want to play with the windows driver, a basic version can be obtained from us (email us, it is written in Visual Basic60). Entire protocol has been simplified and is easy to use.
Supported by ZaraSoft and Jazler!
