Using a Bluetooth head unit as the input source negates line volume issues as they have internal setting to optimise the source levels.  ;)
thanks bluetooth is what i am looking at :y

I've fitted an Aux in to my NCDC 2013 in the 3.2, I personally find the audio fine.

My Omega is 15 years old and has wind noise and engine noise to match, so don't personally find any impedance issues.

I use an iPhone with Spotify linked up, music turned up sounds far, far better than radio and make full use of Bose and bass. Huge improvement.
As Zirk says, the iPhone is particularly shite at directly pumping in music.  The tones aren't massively out (to my tone deaf ears), still noticeable, but the volume levels are complete wank.

You need the iPhone at absolute full volume, and the stereo cranked up a bit to make it audible.  And then shit yourself if you have a travel announcement or satnav come through.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D thanks TB

No issues here running another head unit into it, but it does cost you the glovebox...
don't use the glovebox as there's not much room in there anyway :y

Tapping into the CDC audio lines is easy enough and can be done to suit your needs  :y
But the impedence is wrong, so you ideally need a matching circuit.  Even I notice, despite being half deaf and completely tone deaf.
Depends what Audio Source your pumping into it, if its a proper Pre Amp Audio level then its not too far of the mark, so modern RCA type level should be ok if not a bit high, level wise, which is good in a way as it means you pad the input with a 2k to 10k Pot and try and keep the input resistance above 1k.

If your feeding the input from a iCrap, Phone, headphone output then its going to be all over the place, so more of a case of think of number, divide by 10, multiply by 2, then down the Pub to discuss with your Techie mates, Bobs your Uncle.  ;D
;D ;D yeah think i will still give it a miss sounds like to much bother :y
