    Hi folks

    Can anyone tell me the easiest way to differentiate between the Symphony I and Symphony II models? A google image search seems to show very similar looking units - I ask as I'm picking up a 2004 A3 SE and need to know what unit is in it to price up the right Denison kit for it if I decide to go that way rather than ripping out the whole unit.

    If it helps this one has the rather snazzy tape player which I think rules it out of being anything newer than the II.

    Cheers
    Scott

    Symphony II was only ever fitted to the 8P models, is your car an 8P chassis, I would say yes at 2004.

    Also symphony I and II in the A3 are totally different in shape.

    The symphony II has rounded top corners.

    ​And then there's the symphony II+ which plays MP3 CDs. Fitted in later models.

    Yes but were talking about a 2004 and specifically if it will be symphony I or II so he can order the correct Ipod interface. Chipping in about II+ is poiintless and the OP has already said it's too old for that model.

    Yeah then he will probably have radio reception issues which is further cost, so not a good suggestion Im afraid.

    Thanks, I suspect more strongly that its a Symphony II going by s8craig's advice re the top corners. Car is a 54 plate 8P sorry should have referenced that in the OP.

    More Denisons to choose from now. Hmmm.

    I would have thought that the GW100 CAN AC2 would have been the unit for you?

    That or the Gateway Lite BT i think so. The more I look at it for spending £150+ on a Denison raising that to £300+ gets a RNS-E or aftermarket equivilent with a bag load of extra features so I'm leaning towards creating justification for that!
