CD Brand

Alright, I'm a little confused on what kind of cd player i have in my 92 400E, after my car accident, Mercedes put in a 6 disc player in 99. I'm guessing it isn't the optic wiring ones they have in now. What was Mercedes putting in back then? Alpine? Becker? Thanks.

CD Players

The CD player in my 1990 300D is a six-disc Blauplunkt. It still plays fine, but even better is just ripping a dozen or so of the best CD's into MP3's and playing them on an MP3 player. This you can play with an adapter in the form of a cassette that plugs into the cassette slot.

You can get over 10 songs on one disk. the sound quality seems just as good, you aren't i danger of damaging the orginal disks, and there is a readout on the MP3 player that tells you what is playing. No more having to memorize Track 4 on disc 3.

The best MP3 seems to be the Rio SP250, which Amazon will sell you for about $134.00 delivered. Or you could bid on E bay, where someone bid one up to $165.00. This model also has an FM radio, a lighted display panel and rechargeable batteries. I imagine that there are other good MP3's as well.

A note: when it refuses to play, the batteries need recharging. One charge is good for about 10 hours, it appears
