The unparalleled blend of performance, prestige and presence of the Mercedes-Benz S550 has set the standard among luxury cars for generations. With ground breaking innovation, timelessly modern style, and unyielding attention to every detail of comfort, craftsmanship and pure driving enjoyment, the S-Class remains the car that every other car aspires to be. With this grouping of creature comforts,riding in the back seat becomes a passenger preference and a distinct privilege.
A dramatic new option in high-performance audio, the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system is the result of extensive development that included over 6,000 miles of on-road refinement. The system's 15 speakers plus four acoustic lenses deliver a total of 1,200 watts of breathtaking sound. Two amplifiers power the system: a proprietary 750-watt ICE Power unit fusing high output with compact design and low power consumption,and a 450-watt DSP (digital sound processor) amplifier, which converts stereo audio and the Dolby Digital 5.1 signal into 7.1-channel surround sound. The result is exceptional sound quality at every seating position,with a remarkable benefit of very little sound, including the powerful bass, audible outside the vehicle.
