Heard of Mark Levinson? Unless you already own a Lexus, then you perhaps you haven’t heard of them. The luxury audio company is so expensive to buy that although home theatre systems are available, they aren’t commonplace (frequently around £25,000 for a home set-up). It isn’t just the cost however; Mark Levinson sound engineers would visit your home and examine the structure of the rooms where you would like to have their speakers – if they decide that your home isn’t going to give the optimum performance for their audio system, then you will not be allowed to purchase it!
However, somewhere you will find a Mark Levinson is in a Lexus vehicle. Lexus is the only vehicle manufacturer with Mark Levinson speakers and the quiet cabin of Lexus vehicles provides the perfect backdrop for their audio. As Mark Levinson are very precise about how they want their speakers to emit sound, each Lexus vehicle has to be built with the assistance of Mark Levinson sound engineers to achieve the ‘concert hall in a car’ experience.
By designing the audio into the vehicle from the early stages of its development, Lexus and Mark Levinson know they are getting design right. Each speaker’s position is optimised, components of the car are adjusted and tuning applied to address its unique acoustic environment.
To give you an idea of how much work goes into creating the perfect ‘concert hall’ sound, it took designers over 2,000 hours to perfect the sound system in the all-new Lexus IS.
This uncompromising approach to high fidelity automotive audio systems is combined with cutting-edge technologies and highest quality components.
Other luxury car manufacturers do have premium audio too, but their choices for their vehicles are neither designed into their cars the same way nor are they exclusive. Additionally, Mark Levinson uses Green Edge power saving technology in their speakers, which means that they can create twice the volume yet use up to 50% less power than conventional audio systems.
