Bang & Olufsen Crams 7.1 Surround Sound Theatre Into 2010 Audi A5

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.

In other news, I was feeling pretty good about finally syncing my iPhone/Pandora account up with my two speaker home stereo until I wrote this post. [Bang & Olufsen via Born Rich]
