    I currently have the[FONT=Trebuchet, Trebuchet MS] symphony 2 6 cd changer [/FONT]but im looking to change (the tape part is annoying me) to another audi head unit (no navigation one).

    ive seen the chorus and the concert for decent prices on ebay but what is the actual difference and can anyone reccomend me one.

    If you mean the concert 2+ units, with silver knobs, the antenna system is different so your radio may be degraded.

    The rns-e is compatible with current antenna system & gives you allot more, albeit its more money, but antenna fix for newer units isnt cheap either, I have rns-e units in stock if interested, PM for more info.

    I've got the concert stereo, antenna you need and manual that I may be listing. Nhn just fitted me an rnse unit and the other is surplus to requirements at the min.

    There is some pics on my recent posts from the upgrade if it helps.

    NHN what are the parts etc required for the antenna upgrade as I am about to do the same. 2010+ concert (with mp3) into my 2005 model when I change to double din. I have no need for an rnse but also wan to stay OEM.

    So what would be my best upgrade I can do but keeping it oem. Not interested in the. Rns-e as its around 400+ which is a bit much.

    I have rns-e mk1's cheaper than £400, but you get so much more than the concert, chorus or symphonys, for me pointless doing antenna work if you can plum in an rns with all the extra functionality.

    You would need an adapter set & gps antenna, as long as you have a double din then not allot more needed wiring wise, just some coding, can always recode it for you.

    I could offer a supply/fit service, where abouts are you located?
