It surprises me that more owners don't crow about how great the standard Lexicon sound system is on this car. I've got two teenage daughters so I listen to a lot of music on Sirius Satellite and bluetooth streaming from their phones and I've come to really appreciate and enjoy the wonderful quality. I listened to several different high end upgraded entertainment systems when I drove the Volvo S90 with the optional Bowers & Wilkins system, Lexus Mark Levinson option and the Bose 3D system on the Audi Q7 and I liked this just as much. Most of the controls work well and are intuitive, sometimes the pre sets controls confuse us. My girls love to be able to control the system from the rear armrest console.

I too really enjoy the audio system. It is crisp and clear. I don't need excessive base so I am fine with the level of base the system provides. I can crank the volume and I have not heard distortion yet. I am very impressed with the overall system.

It is just fine for most of us but. . .
There are a couple of threads here where people are improving it, adding sub woofers, reverse engineering, etc. They are spending a fair amount of money to do it too. I just hope they don't improve it so much that loud volume ruins their hearing a few years down the road.

I agree that the audio system is very good, an improvement over the Lexicon in my 2011 Genesis. Finding the right source material makes a difference, though. I get the best result from my iPod, noticeably better than streaming from my iPhone over Bluetooth. As for high volume and hearing loss, I’m way past that, LOL.

The difference in volume between digital radio and USB, CD and Bluetooth is disappointing.

Would that a track on a CD play as loud as a song on a digital radio station. Fed up twiddling that volume knob.

To be fair it's not just a Genesis problem, most car media systems are the same.

I usually have the radio to volume 10 for normal listening on Sirius XM. On one station though, I have to turn it to 15 for the same level. To catch the local news on AM I have to turn it to 22.

I also have to change my home system for TV, YouTube, DVR playback. They all vary.
