Aston Martin Vantage Audio Upgrade

Make: Aston Martin 

Model: Vantage Coupe

Mission: Upgrade classic Aston Martin with 'stealth' flip out touch screen, Apple CarPlay / Android Auto, DAB radio & Bluetooth


This customer needed to upgrade their classic Aston Martin with the latest double din touch screen whilst keeping the original classic aesthetic in their car.

They decided on a 1 DIN - 2 DIN flip out screen by Pioneer (Z7000DAB).

This Aston Martin owner now has Apple CarPlay, Auto Android, Digital DAB Radio as well as full Bluetooth capabilities so they could answer calls and stream media at a touch of a button.

We did a four speaker upgrade from Hertz and an amplifier to create the best sound possible in this classic car. The customer also wanted a steering wheel control as it was not available during time of manufacturer. The solution: add a factory looking stalk control which controls the new radio. 

They loved that they could easily connect their iPhone to the car, listen to a podcast and set up their navigation system without distraction. 

They can even select from Apple Maps, Google Maps and Waze, depending on preference.

Aston Martin DB9 Mobridge Pre amplifier

Make: Aston Martin
Model: ALL including DB9
Mission : To replace Linn Amplifier

On many of the Aston Martins the Linn (sometimes misspelt lynn) fails and stops working. Faults include no sound, and / or strange noises and various speakers including the sub woofer(s) and or midrange /full range speakers.

Cartronics can diagnose the fault, remove the amplifier and replace. We would remove the Linn Amplifier, and use a convertor to change the MOST optic system to RCA-outputs, this enables you to install a new modern day (and reliable) amplifier of your choice. No sound quality is lost as it’s a digital DSP conversion.

We are specialist in MOST fibre optic systems as used in the DB9 etc. Get you Aston Martin audio/radio back up and running, we can also repair the amplifier if needed (see case study here).

Aston Martin repair of linn amplifier system

Make: Aston Martin
Model: All inc. DB9
Mission:  To repair Amplifier

On many of the Aston Martin's the Linn Amplifier (sometimes spelt Lynn by mistake!) fails and stops working. Faults include no sound, some sound and / or a strange noise from various speakers including the sub-woofers and / or midrange or full range speakers.

Cartronics can diagnose your Aston Martin audio system including the MOST optic systems; remove the faulty amplifier and repair / service your system so it's back to its former working self!

Cartronics can replace the Linn Amplifier (if required), we use a digital optic converter to still use the full digital system (i.e. we get the sound via the fibre optics into the new amplifier - no poor adapters of the speaker wires).

Get your Aston Martin's audio system back up and running
