Hey guys. New here.... the dealer called me today and said they got a hold of the C230 sedan I wanted. I pick it up either wed night or thurs. What is concerning me now is the sound system. Does anyone have any information regarding it? I got the stock with the changer in glove box. I was going to tear it out but after finding out it's fiber optic, I am wondering if it's worth the head ache.
Thanks
Charles

If you don't have a cd changer, it is not connected to anything via fiber. It is connectd to the steering wheel buttons via the CANBUS. If you change it, you can't use those buttons to change stations or volume, unless you get an Alpine headunit and an expensive interface.

Thake the original Mercedes CD player. It fit's perfect to the component's of the car. I talked to and Hifi-specialist and he sad that no-one offers an better system then Mercedes.
And you got no porblem with the interfaces. So i decidet to order the original.
That was absolut the right decision! Good sound :twisted:

I feel the stock sound system in my Coupe is average or just very slightly above. If you set the fader towards the rear the sound becomes muffled. The unit sounds best for my liking with the treble set 2 notches from full and the bass full. AM (for news and talk shows) stations sound down-right bad (tinny). I don't have the CD changer yet ($1000 from the dealer?), but the tape player is decent. This system is nothing compared to the Alpine unit in our Navigator. I think the larger interior volume of an SUV lends itself to better acoustics.
