Thats the basic system.

Would say "high performance" otherwise.

I thought as much, I had heard the SE lux models came with the uprated ones as standard but seemingly not.

I compare the sound spec and quality to vehicle drive trains.

Performance sound is like a Ford 2.0 TDCI diesel engine...Gets the job done well enough. Bit of poke. Doesn't sound amazing.

High Performance sound is like a naturally aspirated BMW 3.0 straight six...Smooth and detailed and packs a nice punch

Premium sound is like the VW twin turbo W12 engine....Completely excessive.

I have a cheap Bluetooth FM transmitter, you can see in the photo just plugs in the power supply and your off. I've looked into the sound system upgrades on the forum and it looks a right minefeild.

SE spec level according to Parkers. My V50 SE had the 3.5mm socket behind the centre console so Im not sure if it was an optional extra.

optional extra
usb / phone / 3.5mm skt
from memory you could have 2 but not all 3,, i have neither
Do have the 6 CD multi changer

The Fm transmitter works well for me, USB 2.4a charge port, USB music port, Micro sd card and bluetooth hands free for the phone ,

Audio options are
"spend " at volvo for not a lot
buy a bluepower thing, and have most of it not work,
GROM add on units work well but
15 amazon fm transmitter "happy with that"

I had the multi-changer in mine but I used to plug in my IPhone and played the music off that. I rarely used the CD player, once Id put em in there the same CDs were in for months
