For a company that still puts a cassette player in almost every cars they sell in the U.S., do you really expect an MB to play MP3s? My guess is they'll have MP3 cassette players out pretty soon.

Fortunately it does support CDR + CDRW discs, so at least you can convert MP3's to CDA on your PC and play them in your car.

Officially it does not support cd-r or cd-rw.

It will play some cd-r's. I have never heard of anyone getting a cd-rw to play in the Audio 10.

Mine plays CDR & CDRW discs just fine. I do it all the time. Can't remember when last I actually bought an original CD [:D].
I mostly create Audio CD's from MP3's.

Sometimes it has a problem with Ricoh CDRW discs. It plays them, but takes a few seconds before it starts to play track 1. I mostly use Verbatim CDRW discs - they work 100%. Just be sure to "finalize" the session\disc when writing it. It won't work if the CD session is "open".

In South Africa the Audio 10 CD RDS unit is standard on the C-class.

Most people who have changed to the Audio 10 say it has much better sound quality, especially bass response. The Audio 10 can control the cd changer.

I agree. The bass is noticeably better.

Hi there, I am looking at a used Audio 10 CD player, which the owner states it does not use a security code. Did you need an code for your Audio 10?

Thanks,

Robert

If it's for the W203 (very specific, does not fit any other Benz except the new CLK), then it will just plug and play, no code needed. The square Audio 10's used in other models requires a code.

As for sound, I got the Audio 10 just because of sound as I already had the CD changer. Nice warm bass without having to change speakers or add amps/subwoofers. See if someone on the forum has the Audio 10 near you and will let you listen to it. I let Tiff listen to it and she got one.

Great, thanks.
I too have the CD changer but have heard your comments about the sound, and that is exactly what I am looking for.
