Default How To - Identify Your 75 Or ZT Stereo

To help members correctly identify which original Rover head units were fitted to their cars, Duotone and I have compiled this guide.
From the beginning of production in 1998 up until to 2002 there were just three types of radio in the 75:


1) Harmony
A 7 watt per channel radio by Phillips



2) Symphony
A 25 watt per channel radio by Alpine



2a) Symphony
with Low Line satellite navigation



3) High Line satellite navigation
with built in TV by Alpine



The Symphony and the High Line Sat Nav could be upgraded by the option of:

The Harmon Kardon sound system
This 10 speaker system consisted of uprated speakers in the door cards, 180 watt power amp in the boot & a subwoofer


The Symphony and High Line sat nav remained an option until the end of the production

All the above head units could be upgraded with the addition of a
6 CD Multi changer which could be boot mounted or placed in the glove box.





From 2002 MG Rover dropped the Harmony radio and used the single Din Iovox system instead.
Three variants were available:


1) Iovox CD 80
A 20 watt per channel single CD and radio tuner



2) Iovox M3 100
A 25 watt per channel single CD radio tuner with MP3 disc playback



3) Iovox CR 80
A 20 watt per channel radio cassette with boot mounted 6 CD multi changer


As an alternative to the Iovox single slot CD unit,
in 2002 the Blaupunkt 'CD 32' a 45 watt per channel single CD head unit was also introduced


Blaupunkt CD 32 single CD radio tuner
45 watt per channel


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, shortly after the facelift 75 was introduced between late 2004 & early 2005, the head unit supplier was changed from Iovox to Siemens/VDO,
again three options were available:


1) The VDO CD 413X
A 35 watt per channel single CD radio tuner



2) The VDO CD 5404MP3X
A 35 watt per channel single CD radio tuner with MP3 CD playback



3) The VDO CR213X
A 20 watt per channel radio cassette with 6 CD multi changer

Default MG ZT Range Of I.C.E

From the beginning of production up until to 2002 there were just three types of radio in the MG ZT:

1) Harmony
A 7 watt per channel radio by Phillips



2) Symphony
A 25 watt per channel radio by Alpine



2a) Symphony

3) High Line satellite navigation

The Symphony and High Line sat nav remained an option until the end of the production

From 2002 MG Rover dropped the Harmony radio and used the single Din Kenwood system instead.
Four variants were available:



1) The KRC-391
A 45 watt per channel Radio Cassette



2) The KRC-591
A 47 watt per channel Hi-spec radio cassette with flip down front



3) The KDC-5021
A 50 watt per channel single slot CD radio tuner


4) The KDC-M6021 G
A 50 watt per channel single slot CD radio tuner with MP3 CD playback


All the above head units could be upgraded with the addition of a
6 CD Multi changer which could be boot mounted or placed in the glove box.




----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the facelift ZT was launched in 2004, MG Rover replaced the Kenwood system
as the standard fit head unit, with the single Din Iovox systems instead,
however all the above Kenwood stereos were still available as an extra cost option.

Three variants of the Iovox were available


1) Iovox CD 80
A 20 watt per channel single CD and radio tuner



2) Iovox M3 100
A 25 watt per channel single CD radio tuner with MP3 disc playback



3) Iovox CR 80
A 20 watt per channel radio cassette with boot mounted 6 CD multi changer


Finally, between late 2004 & early 2005, the head unit supplier was changed
from Iovox to Siemens/VDO, and once more three options were available:


1) The VDO CD 413X
A 35 watt per channel single CD radio tuner



2) The VDO CD 5404MP3X
A 35 watt per channel single CD radio tuner with MP3 CD playback



3) The VDO CR213X
A 20 watt per channel radio cassette with 6 CD multi changer

Default Audio

I have bought back the aronline project 75 ClubSe

I want to change the harmony head unit for the symphony unit.

Will the glovebox changer still work or is there anything I need to replace or buy?

Default coding procedure

Hi Reebs
looking at the list of CD Players I have a VDO CD 413X which was fitted by the garage I purchased my 75 from as it had a very poorly hashed cassette player in it(I think the garage owner was related to Del Boy Trotter) I had to pay someone to code it but since that time (Jan 2014 ) the battery had to be disconnected to have the clutch etc replaced I have the 4 digit code but no instruction manuel to put in the code so I can listenen to my music the person that done it before is no longer trading,
Would you have the coding procedure or know anyone who has so I can put the code in I have tried 4 times but now have to wait hours for it to reset as

Not necessarily, as you are a subscribed member Xpart02 (Stu) will happily supply you with the original security code for your radio if you send him a PM with your vehicle details Xpart dealers usually charge for this service, but red forum members get it for gratis
