Audio Issue Driving Me Mad - 2008 S Class

My 2008 S Class has the most irritating intermittent issue with the audio. At random it will simply not play any audio but I can hear the song/radio fade in and out. I thought it might be hardware related but the software goes all over the place. It won't let you scroll options and springs back to the central option or when it does let you move around, it won't let you change any settings such as the audio or speaker fade.

The car has always done this but it's worked 90% of the time so never phased me, this time it decided to not work for about 8-9 hours of driving. Except for the last 10 minutes of my journey home. When it works there are no audio complaints.

Does anyone have any experience of this or have any suggestions? I did think whether it's worth simply going for an upgrade of the system whether it's the amp, speakers etc.

Not really sure what the options are on a car with such integration.
