I have the CD player in MY17 S63. I guess MB stopped them for the new MY18 models. I like to pop in a CD on long drives with my baby girl so she can listen to her music.

Depends where I'm going.

THAT is awesome news! As for the OP, have a family member or acquaintance rip your CDs to FLAC files and put them on a SD card. Super easy and a fantastic way to store a ton of tracks. On a side note, someone mentioned Apple Car Play... it's a nightmare to use the way MB implemented it. It desperately needs a touch screen! When I'm on the nav screen I get kicked to the call screen when someone calls. After the call ends I have to navigate back to the nav screen with the command dial. In my GT350 and Escalade I touch the screen and I'm back.

I've been using Poikosoft's Easy CD DA converter. I set output quality to "best" and format to "flac", save them to a directory on my PC, and then copy to the SD card. You could probably go directly to SD card. It takes about 10 minutes per CD. The cool part is that the software remembers the directory name and settings; so you can just pump CDs one after another.

Two annoyances:
When you are in the car, it reorders the tracks alphabetically.
If there are multiple artists on an album, the car sees that as multiple albums.
(I would be interested to know if anyone has solutions to these)

More Follow-up:
1. The tracks reorder when you click the ALBUM tab. If you go in through FOLDERS, they stay in the original order.
2. The multiple artists problem also goes away if you go through FOLDERS.
3. I've been able to rip DVD-Audio back to FLAC using the software on dvdae.com . But, you lose the titles of each track.
4. The Burmester system (not 3D) does process true 5.1 channel FLAC files. I tested this with the Gimell surround sound test file(5.1 channel, 96hz, 24bit). (But I've never found surround sound music to sound any better than 2-channel).
