Land Rover and Harman Kardon*:
A Partnership United by Passion and Tradition

With over 50 years experience of delivering true acoustic reproduction in your home or your car, Harman Kardon® is the obvious choice to deliver premium audio systems for Land Rover. For more than 15 years, the two specialists have been pursuing a common goal: They aim to offer drivers of these unique original off-roaders uncompromising listening pleasure with the best that modern sound technology can provide.
