If you’re planning on introducing one of the world’s most advanced automotive media systems, then it only makes sense to showcase it in one of the world’s best vehicles. Bose has chosen the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti as its debut model.
The new Bose Media System features customized 5.1-channel surround sound, an AM/FM/XM satellite radio tuner that can be accessed by genre, a 200 hours hard-drive, navigation system, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity with access through the system’s display and a USB 2.0 input.
It also has an industry-first multi-format disc player. It can read and play virtually any type of disc you feed into it: CDs, DVD audio discs, DVD video discs, Super Audio CDs, MP3s, AAC and practically every other format available on recordable CDs and DVDs. It even has the Bose uMusic intelligent playback system that uses tags to identify listener “moods” and calls up similar songs from the hard drive.
Of course the speakers have been optimized for the 612, as well. The system looks fairly easy to control with two large knobs and an upper and lower bank of preset function buttons. Follow the read link for more details on the system.
