Adapting Aftermarket Stereo to W211 Factory Systems

Sorry if this has been posted before but just thought I'd let those who are interested in integrating aftermarket stereo systems to their factory set-ups. Particularly if you are trying to get the signals from the MOST fibre for RCA inputs for aftermarket amps.

You need to get (lifted off their site)

"Dietz Interface
1580 - IMU (R) MOST Audio-out Interface MERCEDES
The Interface converts the digital tone information of the MOST Ring to an analogue 4-channel preamplifier signal. The original prťamplifier is replaced through that. After that you can refit a individual Hifi-system to the OEM Headunit. Compatible devices, see the instructions.

Technical data:

Software release: SW 1.0.0
Power supply: 12 V DC
Working Voltage: 10,0 Ė 14,6 V DC
Quiescent current: 20 mA
Power consumption: 0,3 W
Temperature range: -40 - +85 įC
Weight: 0,168 kg
Dimensions: 106 x 70 x 32 mm

Scope of delivery

1 pc. instruction manual
1 pc. AUX-Out interface
3 pc. shunt connector, red
1 pc. cable kit


Compatible with / Compatible avec / Kompatibel mit / Compatibel met / Compatibile con / Compatible con:

MERCEDES C-Klasse W203
MERCEDES E-Klasse W211
mit/with AUDIO 20
oder mit/or with AUDIO 50
Comand APS (NTG2 mit integriertem Audiogateway)/

Hey, you seem to know a lot about the w211 audio so i was hoping you could help me out. I have a 2003 e320 base so no logic7/hk system. My issue is that I need some answers for a headunit upgrade I want to do, I have an (what appears to be) audio 50 headunit but it doesn’t have nav, it only has that casette player and cd player. I want to upgrade my headunit to a newer doubledin (probably a sony). I don’t know if I need a wiring harness, where to find one/ get one, and anything else that someone doing a headunit upgrade on their stock sound system would need to know.

When I replaced my command on my 2006 with the Harmon Kardon I just cut and butt connected the power and ground from the factory harness. If I remember correctly thereís no ignition power in that harness so I Tapped into the lighter power. I believe your car will also have a audio gateway that you will have to run speaker wire from the new radio to the audio gateway and unplug the audio gateway or pick up the wires in the factory harness for me it was easier just running to the audio gateway. I still donít have a fm Reception either which isnít a big deal because I usually listen to my phone or satellite radio. Thatís all I can think of right now. I went with the pioneer double din.
