    Rolls Royce using lexicon's "logic7"

    Lexicon makes some of the best digital audio multi-channel decoders/ processors out there in the professional/consumer market today. At home, I have a Lexicon DC-2 V4.0 dts/dolbydigital/ logic7/THX Surround EX digital controller that cost over $6,000; new ones cost over $15,000.

    Well Lexicon has licensed their "logic7" technology to Rolls and top-of-the-line BMWs for their high-end audio/video systems.

    logic7 creates an ultra-high-end, discrete 7-channel audio experience from as little as a two-channel source.

    Maybe to compete more effectively, Caddy should drop the crappy Bose systems and upgrade to logic7.

    Lexicon LOGIC7‚ Featured in 2002 BMW 7 Series

    — BMW debuts new 7 Series luxury sedan with 7.1 surround sound technology in the tracking room of New York’s legendary Hit Factory Recording Studios! —


    CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, LAS VEGAS, NV, January 8, 2002 — On September 25th, 2001, journalists from leading Professional Audio and Consumer Audio publications were treated to the launch of the new 2002 BMW 7 Series featuring Lexicon LOGIC7‚. BMW of North America, Harman International and Lexicon chose New York’s celebrated Hit Factory Recording Studios as the venue of choice and moved a new 2002 745i to the 6th floor recording studio to be part of the presentation. The Lexicon LOGIC7 audio system will be part of the Premium Sound Package option in the new BMW 745i and long-wheelbase 745Li.

    The event featured a live recording session with reknowned guitarist Nils Lofgren (known for his work with Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young) as well as a demonstration in the studio of surround sound in 5.1 and 7.1. The finale came when editors walked out of the control room into the tracking room and were given a chance to sit in a brand new 2002 BMW 745i and listen to the same program material in the BMW’s LOGIC7 surround system.

    Lexicon’s LOGIC7 technology converts standard two-channel music and film audio into convincing five-channel or seven-channel surround (depending on system capabilities). It also allows producers of five-channel recordings to release their work in a compatible two-channel form, while maintaining full surround when played through a LOGIC7 decoder or Dolby®
    Pro Logic decoder.

    How many formats of DVD/audio support 7.1 surround sound?

    Exactly.

    The 15 speaker, 5.1 system in the STS is just fine.

    Re: Rolls Royce using lexicon's "logic7"

    As I said elsewhere, logic7 can create a convincing 7.1 sound presentation from as little as 2-channel source--whether that be Red Book PCM CD, LPCM, MP3, etc. I really don't think any automotive manufacturer is using high-resolution Packed PCM 192Hz/24bit DVD-audio or true DSD SACD.

    Most use DVD-roms that will decode Dolby Digital, dts 5.1, but not very-hi-rez sources. So even if you had a 7.1 THX Surround EX format encoded on your disc, factory cars audio system wouldn't be able to play it in true dicrete fashion as the producer/mixer intended.


    And about speakers-- more is not better. All you'll get are phase errors and cancellations, and murky localization. A properly calibrated 3-channel will easily beat any giga-channel system in sound quality and soundstaging.
