Lumax and Alpine present an ultra-premium car music system that can translate live concerts into the past.
Lumax and Alpine have recently released an ultra-exclusive line of car sound systems that promise to enhance your audio-video entertainment experience while driving to a level far beyond what you’re used to even in luxury cars. The Alpine range of car sound systems – called the Alpine F # 1 Status – was introduced in the show car and comes with three display sizes that are seven, nine or 11 inches, depending on customer preferences. But don’t expect you to just go in and out of the waltz because the music system costs a huge price ₹30 lakhs, a label that can’t be music to most ears.
But while a super-expensive and super-exclusive music system may seem off-budget to most people, it has some stunning features that seek to justify this very astronomical price. After all, the Alpine F # 1 Status claims to be unlike any other car audio system currently. First, the system reaches 384 kHz / 32-bit playback, and because it stores 17.4 times more information than a CD, its audio output is said to be similar to listening to a live performance or studio-level audio performance. but within a limited vehicle. It also emphasizes that Alpine’s high-definition audio is reproduced by incorporating frequency bands not previously heard by the human ear. This means richer clarity in high tonal ranges.
AlpineF # 1Status uses high-performance carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) in each speaker, which fully synchronizes the speaker tone by combining the aperture material of each speaker. The speaker environment includes a patented “double-edged edge” that provides sound quality that supports high-resolution sound. The system is also equipped with four premium digital sound processors with a frequency of up to 1 GHz / 64 bits, providing the ability to handle high-power computer CPUs for precise sound tuning.
Then you should use OCXO or a crystal generator with a temperature control system. It is claimed that OCXO was used in the car audio system for the first time and that it increases the accuracy of sound due to the design containing two crystals housed in a special housing with improved thermal insulation that increases the frequency-temperature response from ± 50 ppm to ± 0.1 ppb (parts per billion) through an automated temperature control system.
Obviously, these are some very impressive points that come together to increase the sensitivity of the car’s audio, even if the full range of technologies in place may not be for everyone, just as the price also may not be clear. But for hardcore audiophiles who can afford it, AlpineF # 1Status is a great pleasure for the senses.
