... Harman International.
Yep : the whole bunch of brands Harman itself bought from the early 1980s onward is now in Samsung's hands.
Remember Samsung bought part of Luxman in '95 and even made, sort of, its own high-end mini-series a couple of years later (while still owning part of Lux).
Seems somebody at Samsung, high up, really likes hi-fi.

More to the point : Harman's connected- and car-audio technologies are market-leading and Samsung wants just that :
