The premium system in my MDX was actually the best I've heard in any car, ML and B&O included - a sub that actually worked and was tight, and 5.1. I miss it every day, but would still rather drive the X3.
I have a 2012 X3 without the premium sound system. It plays 5.1 DVD movies. I tried to play 5.1 DVD-A discs but that would not play. I was under the impression that the premium audio plays 5.1 DVD-A discs and I am disappointed to read above that it does not. I was looking forward to ordering that option when I order the 2014 4 series convertible next spring.
