Alpine launches premium car audio system at ₹27 lakh
Audiophiles rejoice, your car is about to sound better than your ears have ever heard. Alpine Asia, one of the most prolific car audio system manufacturers in the country, has announced its lineup of audio systems for 2022. The flagship of its range is the Alpine F#1 Status System, an audio system that Alpine says comes aims to come as close to a live music performance in your car as possible. The range also includes the Status system and a lineup of displays ranging from 7-inch to 11-inch in size.
The Alpine F#1 Status System achieves its aim of delivering a live music performance every time by operating at a frequency of 384kHz, which is some of the most lossless audio quality that you can experience, with more than 17 times the sound quality of a CD. This high-resolution audio quality is backed up by digital signal timing that allows for completely seamless audio playback without any jitters, four high-quality DSPs, and a body made of carbon-reinforced plastic that helps the soundscape. The four-way speaker system can also use custom tone frequency settings if you’re an audiophile who can manage their way through that kind of technicality.
Mizuki Kanai, Senior Manager, Alpine Asia Brand Business, said, “Based on premium-quality sound, Alpine offers best in class infotainment solutions. Backed by advanced technology and relentless research, the products offer customisation, connectivity and communication. Being a global brand serving customers from more than 100 countries, Alpine now aims to provide the Indian music lovers with best in class music experience.”
However, the price of quality is literally the price of this premium sound system. Alpine has priced the F#1 Status system at an eye-watering ₹27 lakh, which just goes to show how much work has gone into the making of this technical marvel of a car audio system.
