Mercedes-Benz has announced that its new S-Class sedan will get a brand-new music system. The system will feature Dolby Atmos Surround Sound and Apple Music integration. It will also have a subwoofer that produces 18.5 liters of sound. The new sound system is a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Universal Music Group.
The new Mercedes-Benz music system will support Dolby Atmos, a technology that will give listeners an immersive experience. This technology allows music producers to place discrete audio elements in a three-dimensional space, immersing the listener into the musical experience. The system is powered by 31 loudspeakers and eight seat-mounted sound transducers.
The new music system will be made possible by Mercedes-Benz’s new partnership with Apple Music and Universal Music Group. This partnership is intended to redefine the music industry and the way music is produced and played in cars. It will also establish the car audio experience as the benchmark for music production and playback quality.
As part of this new music system, Mercedes-Benz will also work with Burmester, a company known for its high-end sound systems. In the new collaboration, Burmester will test recordings for quality and accuracy and award them with the “Approved in a Mercedes-Benz” seal.
Burmester high-end audio systems in Mercedes-Benz cars will be the first vehicles outside of the Apple ecosystem to support Apple Music’s spatial audio. Users will be able to access Apple Music’s app through the MBUX infotainment system and Apple CarPlay. Mercedes-Benz will use this technology in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Mercedes-Benz EQ models.
The audio system is similar to the ones used in Mercedes-AMG cars. It includes four one-inch tweeters and two six-inch woofers. It also features a DSP Digital Signal Processor. The entire system is compatible with Bluetooth 4.5. It also has an AMG GT-inspired design and carbon-fiber monocoque chassis.
