The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - Under the microscope - the sound systems
There is a choice of three sound systems in the new S-Class. The two Burmester® systems offer a multidimensional surround sound in the car. The 3D surround sound is generated using special Burmester® algorithms and two loudspeakers integrated into the headliner. The active control of each loudspeaker with digital technologies leads to an unusually expressive, natural sound. The Burmester® high-end 4D surround sound system adds another level to the three-dimensional listening experience - the 4D sound. Structure-borne noise is passed on in the seats with the help of exciters. In combination with the two Burmester® sound systems, the S-Class has in-car communication. This convenience function supports the communication between the occupants while driving
Hamamatsu engineers designed the Burgman 400 with the idea of making a two-wheeled coupe and their mission can be considered accomplished. The superstructures, refined down to the smallest detail, appear streamlined and ready to guarantee exceptional protection from air and bad weather. To highlight the line and clean lines of the designer's pencils, Suzuki has selected the new Metallic Matte Sword Silver color, which offers a satin effect for the first time in the range. This finish is reminiscent of a sword blade and, combined with the blue rims, creates a strong bond with Suzuki road sports cars. A key element of the look are the full LED headlights. The headlights give the scooter a unique luminous signature with the classic family feeling of the Burgman family and guarantee exceptional visibility in all conditions. The Burgman 400 offers a perfect driving position that guarantees high ride comfort and gives a reassuring feeling of control. The saddle is equipped with a comfortable adjustable backrest with an ideal distance from the platform, whose wide flares make it more comfortable and easy to place your feet well on the ground.
