First thing I do when showing somebody my car who has never heard of an R...pop in my tsunami techno cd and let them hear the flippin sound in my "Volvo". This alone makes me love my car 10 fold compared to others. Just wanted to give props to the audio.

Re: Always ignored: 13 speaker sound system. (bigwill5112)

It's not bad for a stock system, nothing special to say the least.

Re: Always ignored: 13 speaker sound system. (xman03)

Just like the rest of our cars, it has plenty of quirks to go along with it.<p>I've heard better stock systems as well. Both of my father's bimmers fall into that category, as well as my brothers A3.

I think it sounds fantastic. <p>Best stock system I've ever heard was my brothers '05 Acura TL.

Re: Always ignored: 13 speaker sound system. (T5 for Life)

I miss my stock R system.<p>BMW DSP from 2003 is wack beyond belief. I think it's only been in later years that BMW had the partnership with Harmon Kardon.<p>

Its alright, nothing special. I think Harmon Kardon in the new Benz C class does a great job as well as range rover's audio. Both blow the volvo out of the water but you pay for it ;-)

Pop in a nice club mix CD and blow them away. Listening to your fav track at high volume on the freeway at WOT in the R is exhilarating and addicting!<p>The only thing that stinks for me is it overheats in the summer and cuts out the amp for a min every now and then...

Re: (S60R1)

Dynaudio makes a good factory system (like in the R) but has nothing on their aftermarket three way systems. I personally enjoy my Focal K2p's in my S40 more. The cd player also jumps in the R. Annoys the hell out of me.

Nothing special.<br>if you have a wagon with a SUBWOOFER, then it's not bad

I would agree. The premium factory volvo unit in the R is better than most. The system in my 00 S80 was even better. R&T did a comparo a year or two back and ranked the Dynadio system in the new S80 the next best factory system available in any car at any price...second to that of the new gen MB S600. I love my swedish boombox.
