    CCR 600 Philips = Siemens/VDO

    Are these CCR600 things made in the Far East somewhere and just branded by whoever? My friends Coupe has a CCR600 made by Philips, but mine is branded with Siemens/VDO. Mine has deeper bass but I don't know if this may just be a speaker vendor change or if they have improved the amps.

    I don't think there is any financial link between Philips and Siemens, so anybody know what happened there?

    Yes, Philips sold there car audio divsion to VDO a while back hence the creation of the VDO brand of car audio. As part of the agreement Philips still gets stuff manufactured under its name by VDO which of course is part of Siemens who makes the navi systems for Opel/Vauxhall. All a bit complicated really, well not really, it boils down to Philips pawing off there manufactring division to someone else to cut costs.

    It so happens that the basic unit was upgraded over time by Siemens/VDO hence the difference in sound quality.
