Audio-Enriching Technology in the New Lexus NX

Rebecca recently attended the launch of the new Lexus NX and was blown away by the sound quality of this fantastic new technology.

The HARMAN Clari-Fi technology automatically analyses and improves the audio quality of all sorts of compressed, digital music sources. The Lexus NX will host the European première of this audio system.

We've moved on from CDs in cars and digital is now the way forward. Be this MP3s shared across mobile devices, or your favourite streaming music services. There's never been a better time to listen to music in your car.

Of course, to keep file sizes small, there's an element of compression that goes on which can degrade the quality of the music you're listening to. This is why technology such as Clari-Fi is so important.

Unlike other solutions in the market today, Clari-Fi doesn't just add equalization and boost bass, or focus only on leveraging high-resolution file formats on a proprietary device. HARMAN's approach with Clari-Fi analyses digital audio signals in real time and rebuilds them during playback.

It doesn't mask the effects of heavy compression by adding new effects, but instead uses an algorithm to put back what is lost during the compression process. The result is high-quality audio from compressed digital files from any playback source – including the car.

The Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System in the Lexus NX incorporates the Clari-Fi technology across 14 speakers in 12 locations around the car. This creates the optimum listening experience no matter what format your music is in. Driver and passengers will get the highest audio listening experience possible.
