Samsung has announced that it has acquired Harman, the company behind over 20 brands including audio companies AKG, JBL and Harman/Kardon, as well as a suite of connected car technologies.
Although you’re probably more familiar with Harman for their audio brands, the company earns around two thirds of its revenues from automotive-related segments where it produces telematics, security and ’embedded infotainment’ solutions.

That’s the end of a decent audio hardware manufacturer approaching then.
Samsung couldn’t make a cake without it falling to bits!
Quite a few respectable brands there – AKG, Mark Levinson, Revel, etc. Too bad they’ll all be relegated to playing cheesy K-Pop now.
