    Aux volume low

    I use a Topping NX2 £30 off flea bay in my old bus and the sound quality and volume much improved. Need to invest a couple of quid in a decent 3.5mm cable as well. It helps drown out the rattle from the engine too. I find play Motörhead "Ace of Spades" on repeat has the same effect if you...

    Hello from me and the old bus

    Thanks for the welcome. At 48 I hope I've legs on the 2003 vintage merc but it's sitting at 164k and, according to my local specialist who serviced it on Tuesday in very good shape (unlike my good self). The previous owner had it for a shade under 11 years and traded it in for a AMG SLK 55...
