The HK stereo is a disgrace to the HK name. It sucks unless you listen to rap or hip hop.
Well to be fair.. HK doesn't really mean much in the world of the Audiophile. Some of the best brands, are the brand's you have never heard of.
When you outlay the chunk of change for these systems you are essentially paying for the nav unit. Which if it included lifetime free maps, wouldn't be such a big gripe, but considering we also get RAPED on map updates, it sure makes it even less palatable!
I have never heard an OEM audio system in any car that really floored me. I have not heard the Mark Levinson systems that were installed in some high end Fords and Lincolns though.
Great video of a Lexus/Levinson setup, watch in 1080P. Still nearly impossible to capture the true sound without a studio mic, but it sounds pretty darn good on my PC, running a pair of JBL62 Studio Monitors refitted with Ribbon Tweeters and Kevlar 6.25" Mids, 10" Sub and 110x110 Onkyo M282
