It was super interesting and a lot of fun to catch up with HARMAN’s Sr. Director, Product Strategy & Planning for Luxury Audio, Jim Garrett, and the Director of Global Engineering for Luxury Audio, Paul Neville in Munich to talk about the birth of the Luxumer on Audio Talks. This was in advance of our panel at High End with their colleague Dave Tovissi, the Vice President & GM of Luxury Audio.
