I'm hearing that it is possible to hook up an Alpine CD changer with this plug to the fiber optic connection in my E 320. Has anybody used it or heard how well it performs? And also how much is it, and where can i find it? Any info that can be provided will be greatly appreciate.

There is a post in the W210 E Class formn that you can use an Alpine changer (CHM- S601, S611, and S620) with this. Well, is there any way to connect a non-fiber optic CD changer to the one in the Benz?

Don't believe everything you read. There are no adapters to allow an alpine m-bus cd changer to work. There are only two choises as Horst has said.<br>

I just purchased a peripheral plug from sounddomain.com for 79.95 to connect my alpine CD changer. Works great. I have a 98 C230.<br> <br> Good Luck.

The Becker 10 disk changer comes with a fiber optic connector. It is a heavy-duty, all metal changer made in Germany. The all plastic, six disc changer from Alpine doesn't compare. SW Stereo Specialists (800-270-2378) advertises them in 'The Star' magazine from the Mercedes-Benz Club of America. P.

Peter,in the first place the mbz alpine is not all plastic. The only Becker cd changer that is fiber-optic is a 6 cd changer #2662 and it is made by another Japanese company and I would have to say it has as much plastic as the alpine. Read what Horst from Becker said in his post.
