This was the public unveiling of a substantial cooperation between Bang & Olufsen and Audi, which places an exclusive Bang & Olufsen audio system in the Audi A8.<p>Press conference at the Geneva Motor Show<br>Torben Ballegaard Srensen and Dr Vinterkorn presented their respective companies partnership at a press conference held in connection with the Geneva Motor Show, and revealed that the Audi A8 with the exclusive Bang & Olufsen audio system can be seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show this Autumn.<p>The sound distribution and stereo image are perfect, no matter where you sit in the Audi A8, and the sound level matches the best high-end stereo systems for the home. The system consists of two moving acoustic lenses mounted in each side of the instrument panel. The lenses are designed to fit in the exact location of the original Audi drivers.<p>About the audio system<br>With 14 additional high-end loudspeaker units, each individually controlled and powered by its own amplifier, the acoustic performance is uncompromising. The sound system expresses a radical synthesis of emotional appeal and technological performance; an ambition that has been the hallmark of Bang & Olufsen for decades.<p>All speaker drivers are custom-made for this purpose and mounted in moulded plastic cabinets utilizing the pressure chamber technology. This way the same conditions are maintained for all the individual drivers under all circumstances. A further benefit of using pressure chamber technology is that the sound emitted to the exterior of the car is minimal thus allowing for maximum privacy within the vehicle.<p>Pressrelease:<br> <A HREF="http://www.bang-olufsen.com/web2/press/uploads/audi_pressuk.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bang-olufsen.com/we...k.pdf</A>
