What about the audio system of Aston Martin Vantage V12?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
One of my friend have a Vantage V12 and I already knew the audio system of it was designed by BANG & OLUFSEN... I've listened some songs on it, use SONY PCM-D50 line out to drive. I feel good. Did anyone have done some test on the audio system????

The only audio you should be listening to in a car like that is the exhaust sound.

I have experienced Aston Martin B & O sound :Vanquish V12

and Porsche Burmester sound: Porsche 911

Via car/audio demonstrations but enough to enjoy as you did.
B & O tweeters "motors raise the turned and anodized aluminium tweeters from the instrument panel as the sound system is turned on, welcoming the listener to a performance on par with the driving experience only achieved in a One-77"
-2 x 19 mm soft dome tweeters in motorized acoustic lenses
-3 x 19 mm soft dome tweeters

Burmester tweeters "the tweeters are ribbon-based air motion transformers (AMT) that have been designed specifically for the 911"

If you are sensitive to high notes,the B & O could sound brighter than the Burmester and may require equalization,which of course it does have.

I believe it was Fifth Gear that did some blind testing on high end factory audio setups. The Naim/Bentley setup won rather handily but I don't recall all the others tested.
