Bang & Olufsen’s long-standing partnership with Audi will soon produce a sound system in the upcoming 2010 A5 Sportback that arguably rivals many modest home theatres.
The aluminium accented 14-speaker system is an option for the A5, which will be revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show later this year. The sound system portion is accompanied by 10GB jukebox and CD/DVD player, the latter of which can play high res movies on a 7-in. screen in the dash. We’ll surely see the system in action in Frankfurt this fall. Unfortunately, the sportback is for Europe only, as Audi says Americans don’t respond well to the design.
