ghibli sound system

Does anyone know if the new ghibli has an upgraded standard audio system ? I hear it's a 900w system with 10 speakers - can anyone with a new car confirm this, as all the websites say it is except the Maserati website!?

I've been told they've made incremental in the "Premium" sound system for '16. That's the only change I'm aware of. I'm awaiting delivery (any day now) of my '16 with B&W.

I was not sure as 2016 Maserati Ghibli Diesel review | Autocar says the car has a standard 900w speaker system. Mine came last week but waiting for 1st September to come for the new number plate!

Standard sound system on 2016 Ghiblis remain the same as before, factory unit w/ 200w.
Premium now becomes 900w Harmann Kardon
B&W is the optional 1200w that is recommend for classical music lovers.

Does anybody know if the Premium level is now a real upgrade compared to the standard one ? (because it seemed in the previous version that the Premium was not as good as one could expect)

The premium stereo will be 900w Harman Kardon on 2016s.
How is that not a 'real upgrade' compared to previous options?
Unless ofcoarse one doesn't think much of HK, which is totally subjective.

Is Harman Kardon not JBL now? or the otherway around?
I have a JBL home cinema and it is pretty good, however I am not what you could call a "meloman".
As Oscar Alpha it is subjective.

Is the standard audio system really that bad?

I just mean that plenty of members on this forum have reported bad quality of the Premium sound system on the 2015 Ghibli and advise to stay with the standard system. Just wanted to
Know if the option worth the price now

My car has the standard system and after reading the reviews on here, I was really worried just how bad it would be. I collected the car last week and have to say, the sound quality isn't that bad. The volume doesn't go very high though.
