​The Magic Bus has profoundly broken new frontiers in the world of mobile audio. The Magic Bus is the first, or at least among the first, of all car stereos to:


  • proselytize the playback of high-resolution audio files (via DVD-Audio discs with files at 24-bit/176.4Hz using the original Alpine F#1 Status source unit and processor), and ...


  • ​feature 54 (fifty-four) scientifically-designed and acoustically validated sonic treatments (No other car stereo ever made can match the interior acoustical performance of the Magic Bus), and ...


  • be on the cover of the abso!ute sound® magazine described as "The World's Best Car Stereo", and ...


  • bridge the chasm between home audio and mobile audio, and ...


  • play 11.2 MHz DSD files natively in North America, and ...


  • feature live musicians playing instruments or singing directly into the Magic Bus' audio system (the distinguished list of musicians includes, Larry Mitchell, Dean Peer, Russel Blake, Jamie Shadowlight, Jenny Maybee, Allan Phillips), and ...


  • deliver two "silent concerts", whereby Larry Mitchell performed in front of the Magic Bus delivering sound to simultaneously to both headphones and the Magic Bus' audio system, and ...


  • exhibit at more than ten high-end home audio shows (T.H.E. Show Las Vegas, T.H.E. Show Newport, Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, and Los Angeles Audio Show), and ...


  • exhibit at Capital Records, and ...


  • appear in a recent issue of Stereophile magazine, and ... 


  • appear in six feature articles in Car Audio and Electronics magazine showcasing its design and fabrication, and ...


  • be autographed by hundreds of legendary and otherwise talented musicians from all over the world, and ...


  • be based on a Mercedes Sprinter van with favorable cockpit geometry and superior interior acoustical capabilities, and ...


  • feature a 292 pound subwoofer enclosure fabricated from laminated layers of Baltic Birch with a wall thickness on all sides equal to 3 inches, and isolated from the body of the vehicle using military-grade generator mounts with a resonant frequency of 11 Hz, and ...


  • feature a marine-grade on-board battery charging system with incoming alternating current ("AC") noise filtration, ground fault protection, and Blue Sea Systems' AC and direct current ("DC") multimeter systems, and ... 


  • employ nominally 9-inch loudspeaker transducers in 50-pound sealed enclosures, isolated on rubber mounts, in the doors of an automobile, and ... 


  • employ one nominally 5-1/4-inch midrange and one nominally 1-inch tweeter loudspeaker transducers in a 19.9 pound sealed enclosure, each mounted in the a-pillars of an automobile, which neither touched the windshield glass nor the dash, and ... 


  • host a two-day completion party featuring The Gilbert Castellanos Quintet and the Nat Adderly, Jr, Quartet, from which 24-bit/192kHz were recorded and subsequently played for future guests in the Magic Bus (compliments of Jim Merod of BluePort Jazz and Joe Kubala of Kubala-Sosna), and ...


  • reveal and disclose, with full transparency, its design, fabrication, and acoustical performance, on a full-featured website (no other car stereo competitor or enthusiast has done so to this degree).
