The Harman Mobile Showcase, a 1,000-square-foot truck that houses a fully functioning surround sound home theater and an audiophile demo room, will be returning to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show this year. The show will take place March 17–20 in New York and will be open to the public.
The Harman Mobile Showcase houses a fully functioning home theater.
The Mobile Showcase will give attendees a chance to experience a wide range of Harman High Performance AV home entertainment components from JBL Synthesis, Revel, Mark Levinson, and Lexicon in an at-home setting. In creating the Mobile Showcase, Harman worked closely with custom installation firms and collaborated with architects and interior designers to create demonstration rooms that combine exceptional audio and video performance with elegant décor.
“We look forward to giving consumers and industry professionals a look at how high-end audio and video components can integrate beautifully into the home,” said Jim Garrett, market manager, Harman. “The Architectural Digest show is the perfect venue for exhibiting our products to a wider audience who passionately care about design excellence — and who may never have experienced a custom-installation home theater or high-end music system before.”
The audiophile room will feature a 2-channel audio setup with Mark Levinson components, including the No512 CD/SACD player, No326S preamplifier and No53 monaural power amplifiers driving Revel Ultima2 floorstanding loudspeakers.
The home theater room consists of a complete JBL Synthesis multichannel audio system including K2S9900 main-channel loudspeakers, an SK2-3300 center channel loudspeaker, S4Ai surround loudspeakers and S2S subwoofers, SDP40HD surround processor/system controller, S820 amplifiers and additional JBL Synthesis components. A Lexicon BD-30 Blu-ray player rounds out the system, which also includes a high-end video projector and screen.
