A high-quality surround sound system by Harman Kardon® or Burmester® which is specially configured for the passenger compartment will make every piece of music an outstanding audio experience.
The Harman Kardon® Logic 7® audio system with digital sound processing delivers fully-digital 5.1 surround sound in outstanding quality – as realistic, atmospheric and rich in detail as a live performance. This is made possible by a high-performance amplifier, a multichannel surround system with high-end loudspeakers and a subwoofer whose sound is tailored specifically to the vehicle's interior.
With its high-end speakers and electronic and acoustic elements which are precisely tailored to the vehicle interior, the Burmester® Surround Sound system is guaranteed to encapsulate the listener in the top-class Burmester® sound of well-being. The 9-channel DSP amplifier distributes its output perfectly to the loudspeaker systems. The surround function takes a mono or stereo signal and generates a virtual all-round audio environment. The highly sophisticated vehicle noise compensation system (VNC) ensures that sound quality is maintained even through the occurrence of driving noise to guarantee maximum listening pleasure in all traffic conditions, whether on the motorway or in town. The sound can be specifically adapted for the front or rear seats.
The Burmester® High End 3D surround sound system was developed specially for the S-Class. 24 specially designed speakers, a 24-channel amplifier with a total output of 1540 Watts and technologies developed exclusively for the vehicle generate the unmistakably expressive, spacious Burmester® sound of well-being. The 3D sound allows passengers to enjoy a three dimensional audio experience of mono, stereo and 5.1 recordings in the vehicle. This is accomplished with the aid of specially calculated Burmester® algorithms and three speakers integrated in the roof. The VIP setting allows the sound to be tailored specifically for the driver, front-seat passenger or rear-seat passengers.
