Bang & Olufsen Audi A8 system voted “world’s best sound system”
Arlington Heights, Illinois – The Advanced Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, specially designed for the Audi A8, has received the top audio award in Ward’s AutoWorld magazine’s “Interior of the Year” award. The system was chosen by a jury of 69 automotive journalists.
The system is the first in-car design from the Danish stereo company; it was tailored exactly to the acoustic requirements of the A8’s interior and uses 14 speakers, each with its own dedicated amplifier. The award was presented in Detroit at the opening of the 13th annual Auto Interiors Show, presented by Ward’s Automotive Group.
