Hi,

Anyone that has the standard sound system (Discover Navigation System) in the Tiguan R-Line or SEL, got any thoughts on what its like ?

I've currently got a Mondeo with the standard Sony sound system and to me its a actually very good, and wondered how the Tiguan standard sound system would compare.

I was going to upgrade the stereo and still wish I had, however coming from my last 2 Audis which both had upgraded stereos (Bose and B&O) it isn't too bad but I only tend to listen to radio now rather than music on my iPhone.

I just traded in my Mondeo, and I agree the sound system was pretty decent.

Will put a couple of CDs, and an SD card with some FLACs in the Tig to try it out and I'll report back.

I had the B&O in my last Audi and I have to say the standard sound system in the Tiggy is pretty good.

Thanks Ed1, starting to put my mind at rest a little ;)

Said it before, the Dynaudio is much better than my Q5 B&O.

I'm quite happy with the standard system, but then again I've got 'old' ears and I'm no audiophile ;)

I can confirm, after sitting in a car park for the past 3/4 of an hour, that the audio on the Discover system is excellent and has plenty bass. After lots of experimentation, I ended up with the equaliser set to Bass +5, Mid +2 & Treble -1 to suit my ear.

Crystal clear no matter what media, with no buzz or hiss except on lower sample rate MP3s.

That's great thanks for trying that out.

Similar to my settings Bass +4 Mid. +2 and Treble 0 and I've been happy with mine . War of the worlds on car play sounds great but 90 percent of the time I listen to the radio with clear voice and good bass.

I tested it too and it sounds pretty good, it's not got the bass of my A3 which came with a subwoofer as standard, but it has a nice sound with good fidelity. Adding an active sub under the seat would probably make a decent setup.
