You don’t have to buy one Lucid Air If you want a car with more immersive Dolby Atoms. Mercedes Will be equipped All models use both of its latest MBUX interfaces with Atmos Audio (introduced with The latest S-Class) And an optional Burmester 3D or 4D sound system. Whether you drive or not, you’ll hear consistent music in a vertically enhanced sound field – it may not sound like a “live concert” as Mercedes claims, but it should be one step above normal stereo playback.
The 4D system has 31 speakers, six of which produce 3D effects from above. Four more “near the ears” speakers sit in the front seat and each of the four seats has two sound transducers (aka exciter). Throw 1750W total power (including an 18.5-liter subwoofer) and you’ll probably be happy regardless of audio processing.
Don’t plan to buy an Atmos-equipped car right now. The format will first be available in the Mercedes-Maybach in the summer of 2022 and soon in the S-Class. Other models will follow, but you don’t want to rely on a purchase A class Soon anytime with Atmos.
