If you want to think it's best thing since sliced bread because it costs a bazillion dollars it and it has a BMW badge on it, fine by me.
I stand by my original conclusion, at low volumes it sounds like crap*.
Being an engineer doesn't make an audiophile, nor does working for a sound company.
We don't listen to "tones" when we listen to music. Test tones are used to setup and tune audio systems, not for listening. At the end of the day, if you don't like the way it sounds, that's your subjective opinion.
If the stereo was put in a Kia and cost 300 dollars, I would say the same thing about it. It being a BMW has nothing to do with anything.
I didn't ask a question for it to get the answer "no". And no, the car does not have a dynamic EQ. It does not have a reference mic to adjust the EQ as the volume changes. Sorry.
