Easily and efficiently connect aftermarket amplifiers to Continental/VDO radios in many European luxury vehicles.

Because of their ability to support modern media formats; Continental & VDO radios are slowly becoming the replacement radio choice in older European luxury vehicles such as BMW*, Porsche, Mercedes, Ferrari, Land Rover, Lamborghini etc. These replacement radios are capable of producing 41Wx4 (similar to original Becker radio); but if looking to elevate to a new level or clarity and fullness; many audiophiles are adding subwoofers or powered subwoofer. Unfortunately Continental & VDO radios lack line-level output required by most amplifiers and because of that a line-level converter is required. This virtual plug-n-play adapter is not only a line-level converter but also includes signal sensing technology which turns amplifier on/off when radio is turned on/off and unlike most universal line-converters; it is custom fitted with plugs/connectors matching both the Continental/VDO radio and vehicles ISO-style power & speaker plugs. (All listed vehicles must have original radio plugs ( BMW must have this 17-pin radio plug) .
By using the AiH-CONTI, the factory radio wiring integrity is retained and audio system can easily return to original if and when vehicle is offered up for sale or trade.
Warning: Not applicable to Hi-Fi amplified systems (Nokia, HAES, or Bose). These requires our ARH-CONTI instead.
