An aftermarket Blaupunkt head unit is the easiest to interface with  
the Audi wiring inasmuch as connectors plug and play, requiring only  
the relocation of one pin in the power connector. All HUs now at  
least include a CD player.

One can use the Audi head unit to speaker wiring and bypass the  
amplifiers at each speaker, connecting directly to the original  
speakers, BTDT, or aftermarket speakers.
