CES News: Sound Surround

THX introduces next generation sound system in 2009 Lincoln MKS

If you were already anticipating the release of Lincoln’s new MKS, we’re pleased to deliver more music for your ears. THX’s Certified 5.1 Surround System will debut in the luxury midsize- and after hearing a demonstration, its a welcome development. For audiophiles, THX’s new system boasts a 12-channel amplifier that delivers a powerful 600 watts to 16 speakers, including a 10-inch sub. Bundled with DVD-based navigation, the system also decodes and plays multi-channel audio from DVD movies and audio discs. Translation? If life forces you away from your home theater, you’ll feel like you never left the house.

More information is available at THX.com. Stay tuned for more on the MKS as the Detroit Auto Show approaches.
