Simple answer - yes. Here is a long/old thread on it http://www.myaudiq5.com/index.php/topic/870-bang-and-olufsen/

I studied Acoustical Engineering and can tell you its a great system for a few hundred pounds. The clarity and balance is excellent.

The main 'complaint' that people have is it is not loud/bassy enough - I assure you that unless you have a hearing problem it is plenty loud enough!
It goes up to 34, and the loudest I have it is about 28 - if the Mrs is in the car she gets grumpy over about 23.
The B&O has the 'right' amount of bass - so if you are into Drum n' Bass then maybe the Audi system would fit that type of listener better - but I listen to a wide range of music (including some Drum n' Bass) and it sounds just fine to me!

The Audi system that comes as standard is pretty good, but its no B&O!

Right on, its well balanced and clarity is great ! but then again, everyone has a different set of ears

Like with most things, you get people on both sides of the fence.
Best thing is to visit a dealer and try the two different setups out.

It's not the fantastic system you get in the higher models, but remember how much you are paying for it!

I've never understood the "its not loud enough" its an awesome bit of kit for the money in my honest opinion.

Its where I listen to the vast majority of my music so it makes sense to have a good system in the car for me...

Good sound but the default level is to low for me and the noise increase system (cant think what its called at the mo) just doesn't work AT ALL

Can't comment on B&O, but the standard system in the Q5 is very good and much better than sound systems I've had in any previous non Audi cars.

I like the B&O system and am glad I have it. The sound is clear and rich to my ears and although I understand the comments about the loudness, I find it loud enough for me.
