Keep us posted please.

I've just fitted a BAVSOUND upgrade and coded BW - not sure it goes loud enough for me! I can listen on full volume and still feel I want more.

May try the B&O now actually.

Had a decent listen last night and I really enjoyed the sound. I found myself hearing little sounds that I hadn't heard before in tracks and all at reasonable volumes. I'm sure for every person that likes the sound of the B&O there will be just as many who prefer stock or B&W though, so you'll have to try it for yourself.

I think the best hifi upgrade I have done is to add a couple of small pieces of felt to the isofix connectors on the rear parcel shelf to stop them rattling when the volume is turned up

I've coded to B&O now but it was too late to spend any time listening last night.

I do like that there are less redundant options (the B&W setup has lounge and all the others which do nothing) but I need to volume to be higher - so this is what I'll check out.

There is certainly a difference between these and the HK setup to my ears.

Yes, please do update... You can get your volume to full? Something not right there, surely. I only have modest bass & treble settings & really couldn't stand it much higher than about 70%volume. Even at that level, I can't hear a passenger shouting at me 2 feet away...

Same here ... B&W seems very loud. I have played around with the equaliser now and think itís much better than Logic 7. Might code B&O and see how it compares.

Eagerly await your comparison

Initial feedback - the B&O is plenty loud enough, even for me and I like music loud!

Still playing with the equaliser however it seems nice and sensitive to changes.

However - losing the speed volume option on both the B&O and B&W is a bit annoying. Just travelled out of London and was constantly adjusting the volume.

Right, coded the B&O today. I liked the B&W and was better than Logic 7. Itís hard to properly compare but I think I like the B&O sound slightly better, abit more clarity and base. Both are an improvement over logic 7 imo and are worth coding. Added rear DRL also 😁....

Thanks for your feedback. I might give it a try. In the high end audio B&W, what value did you select before coding in the B&O? I just want to double check. Cheers.

Initially I didnít, I just coded the B&O. I then had both B&W and B&O in the menu ! I then just put it back to kein_menue in the B&W settings. Maybe you could keep both ?....
