Customer Question

I have a 2004 jaguar S-type R. Alpine sound system. Would this http://i-carus.com/ or this https://www.hifiberry.com/ work given the fibre optic system? Thanks.

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
If you are looking to use the factory amplifier then it will not work due to the fiber optic network. The audio unit is the master module. Also if your vehicle is fitted with the touchscreen system a new climate module will need to be fitted. Let me know.

Wouldn't this https://www.hifiberry.com/digiplus/ or this unit, http://www.dx.com/p/specific-hifi-digi-digital-sound-card-i2s-spdif-optical-fiber-for-raspberry-pi-a-b-blue-366963#.VZ51t_lVUsc, allow a fiber optic connection to the factory amplifier?

Yes but it does not really show that it can communicate over the D2B network. Also the audio unit sends out a wake up signal as well.
