Article by Christian Andrei, on September 1, 2010

Harman, a maker of audio and infotainment systems, has recently introduced the new Kardon Logic7 HD system that’s built exclusively for the Range Rover Autobiography.

The Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system is offered as standard on the limited edition version of the SUV and is also an option across the entire Land Rover model range. Harman Kardon and Land Rover collaborated in making this new system.

The partners celebrated their 16th year of cooperation last June with an event at the recording studios of music icon Mark Knopfler. This event also marks the first demonstration of the Kardon Logic7 HD system. In fact, Grammy winning Producer Steve Levine produced two tracks that were performed by Ivor Novello nominee

Patch William to be demonstrated in the Range Rover Autobiography. Logic7 features a 5.1 surround sound setup with a total output of 1200 watts, built with 15-channel sound and 19 speakers plus a 20mm subwoofer in the front door and a subwoofer in the rear quarter deck.

According to a company statement, the Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system offers a “unique listening experience” and has a 1200W D class amplifier that came about after using the most up-to-date digital technology. The system “authentically” reproduces the recordings with the same quality of the live performance.

When this system is mated to Harman Kardon's proprietary Logic7 surround sound processing technology, this results to an “all encompassing, multi-layered experience releasing the subtle nuances of the original recording” regardless of where the listener is seated.

Range Rover Autobiography - Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system

HARMAN, the premium global audio and infotainment group, prides itself on its principle of designing, developing, manufacturing and supplying branded audio systems. This authentic approach has been applied to its latest technology offering, the Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system, exclusively available on Range Rover Autobiography and offered as an option throughout the model range. The new system continues 16 successful years of collaboration between Harman Kardon and Land Rover.

In celebration of this latest evolution in the Land Rover/Harman Kardon relationship, an exclusive launch event was held in June at the recording studios of music icon Mark Knopfler. British Grove Studios in London was selected as the perfect venue to demonstrate the capabilities of the Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system in the Range Rover, reinforcing the depth of competency of HARMAN’s heritage in the professional recording process, coupled with the authenticity of our approach in automotive audio systems.

British Grove Studios is a state of the art facility with the ability to record in 5.1 surround and was used to best effect with Grammy winning Producer and HARMAN aficionado Steve Levine producing two tracks performed by Ivor Novello nominee Patch William. The studio was a hive of activity for two days as this young band worked under the expert supervision of Steve, producing a number of 5.1 recordings for demonstration on the Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system in the Range Rover Autobiography.

The latest Harman Kardon Logic7 HD system offers the audio connoisseur a unique listening experience. Utilising the most up-to-date digital technology, an impressive 1200W D class amplifier is at the heart of this premium sound system, delivering high dynamic performance, authentically reproducing the recordings back to the listener with the same unparalleled quality achieved during the live performance.

Fifteen independent channels drive the audio system, offering levels of control previously unavailable in an automotive environment. With nineteen hi-powered speakers strategically located throughout the Range Rover cabin, this class leading system delivers smooth and controlled vocal performance from the most challenging of tracks.

Complemented by the new 200mm front door woofers and subwoofer in the rear quarter deck, the control of the low end frequencies is truly remarkable. Coupled with Harman Kardon’s® proprietary Logic7 surround sound processing technology this creates an all encompassing, multi-layered experience releasing the subtle nuances of the original recording, irrespective of the seat location.

HARMAN is proud of its long standing iconic and visionary collaboration with Land Rover. With the new Harman Kardon® Logic7® HD system exclusively available on Range Rover, the bench mark has been set once again.
