Thank you to Harman & A Girl’s Guide to Cars for sponsoring this post.
It’s been a long time since many of us have been to a concert. What if I told you that I recently drove with Bono, Natalie Merchant, and all of my favorite characters from my favorite Broadway hits? Revel by Harmon makes this possible because the sound is so pristine that you feel like they are singing to you as you drive in the Lincoln Aviator.
Recently, I had the chance to experience the Revel sound in a Lincoln Aviator. The #LincolnSanctuary hashtag truly embodies how you feel as you enjoy the silence of the ride and the amazing sound as you listen to your favorite tunes.
I drive often. Up until this year, I make numerous trips from NY to Hilton Head, NY to the Jersey Shore and NY to Vermont, just to name a few. Did you know that AAA found that American drivers spend an average of over 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year? Our cars are our second homes and that means that we listen to a lot of music. I don’t know about you but with that much time in a vehicle, we want our sound to be crystal clear.
Superb Audio in the Lincoln Aviator Thanks to Harman
For this reason, we want car audio systems that deliver in sound quality and clarity. To understand how to evaluate the sound in the Lincoln Aviator, I participated in the Revel How to Listen Masterclass with A Girls’ Guide to Cars. Harman is known for its speakers and sound systems and Revel by Harman is partnering with Lincoln to deliver car audio that creates an ideal listening environment. Jonathan Pierce shared his knowledge of Revel and reminded me that as a part of Generation X, I know what it was like to go into a store to listen and buy my music. We know music and appreciate how it becomes a part of our lives.
As I drove in the Lincoln Aviator, I was able to enjoy my music even with a full car of tweens and teens.
The midrange speakers located in the doors and atop the dashboard are responsible for clarity and create a life-like moment. This is how I felt as if Lin-Manuel was singing My Shot or Bono was singing Where the Streets Have No Name or J. Lo was singing If You Had My Love. I could go on and on but I’d like to thing that my ecclectic style of music enabled me to enjoy all aspects of the Revel System and allowed me to notice details and instruments in the songs that I had never heard before.
Did you know that surround sound or stereo sound each have a distinct sound that it is up to the listener as to which they prefer? With Revel, you can see which one is most pleasing as your drive.
While trying to listen to the sound quality, there are many ways in which you can enjoy your favorite tunes in the Lincoln Aviator. To enjoy your acoustic experience with your smartphone, it is best to connect your device via USB or cable as wireless communication such as Bluetooth may cause unwanted compression and noise. While in the Aviator, I used Spotify to stream music. It is best to the highest available option and reset any EQ or effect settings on your device to zero/neutral.
To fully understand the abilities of the Revel Sound System, I tried my best to listen to a variety of genres. The soundtrack from Mamma Mia!, Pearl Jam, and 50 Cent enabled me to see the full capabilities of the system. I also could do my classic favorite of just turning it up without having to worry that volume might change the quality.
Listening to music is definitely a very personal experience and the Harman Revel sound system delivers memorable experiences and “Goose-bumps” moments. It has the ability to bring you back to the moment that you first remember hearing the song. Revel brings a clear clean sound that is powerful and envelops you in the full experience of some of your best-loved songs. This is the embodiment of what you expect from a luxury SUV.
The Highest-Quality Sound
Lincoln and Revel together have created a place of sanctuary in their luxury SUVs and I am so happy that I got to experience it first hand.
