Who makes the Premium Sound System in the M3?

Who makes it? I've searched with no answers. Does anyone know?

Lear Audio, if you refer to the system that is called "Individual High End Audio" (SA677) in Europe, see this.

More Info here.

Mein Auto: M3 sedan, jet black
I declined the premium system in my E90 M3, but do regret it a little bit as the stock system is definitely not as good as the premium Logic7 I had in my E90 335. Of course, this was 'only' an $800 option not $1800...

Looking at the links posted above, it would appear that the premium system in the M3 is the same as that in the 335 except the speaker grills/appearance? Is this correct, are they the same (aside from price)?

Not the individual high end system, but the Enhanced premium sound system(with the silver speakers.)

Yup, I was wrong: High End Individual is SA752, Logic7 is SA677. As far as I know, the Amplifier of the Logic7 is made by Lear as well.

No. The Enhanced Premium Sound (a/k/a BMW Individual High-End Audio, as Technic noted) system is not (normally) available in the 335. It is a significant step up from the harman/kardon (Logic7) system.

Yes, it is available, at least in Germany, and it is the same in the 335i as in the M3.

Let's clear some confusion here:

-SA752 (825W) is not SA677 (480W)
-SA752 is available in the 335i via Individual order in the USA

...and good point, I should have added "in the US"--especially because playing with the configurator on bmw.de was how I found I might be able to to add it to my car in the first place.

So the Enhanced Prem sound option that you can tick on the website, it's made by Lear? That's nifty. Thanks for the help, guys!
