Need some advice on the sound system.

I have a 2014 with the upgraded sound package coming some day...and I am a bit confused on the cd situation in the SRT.

Does the remote cd player come standard? If not how do I get it installed (I didn't see that in the options)

If I don't have the CD player, can you upload the songs into the system for storage? (My current car downloads the CDs to an internal hard drive so I never have to keep CDs in the car, does the SRT do the same)

If it does have an internal hard drive, how big is it?

I was sitting here and it all just hit me and I mentioned it to the wife and she was horrified (LMAO). She likes her CDs. I like my CDs but most of them are not converted over, they are either on my iPOD or already downloaded in my other car. So I am trying to figure out if I am ok with not having a CD player. Any help would be great.

There is most likely a CD player in your center console. If not there is a SD slot as well as a USB port and an auxiliary port. Plenty of methods.

Re: Need some advice on the sound system.

But how do I make sure I have a CD player? Is it standard?

A CD player is not standard. You can order one as an option, but it's installed in the center console. Search, there has been a lot of discussion about this.

There is no hard drive. There is an SD memory card slot.

Re: Need some advice on the sound system.

2014 - CD player is optional. It would be on your window sticker and you would pay for it if you got it.
There is no hard drive on the 2014s either. 2012 and 2013 had a CD player built into behind the nav/stereo and also had a hard drive.
SINGLE DISC REMOTE CD PLAYER (RH1) N/A W/AEK [MSRP $195 / INV. $ 174]
The CD player takes up over half of the middle console and removes the upper tray in the middle console as well.

Re: Need some advice on the sound system.

Ok my last question (which I am also currently searching for) is what music format does the system read? mp3, wma?

Thanks again for the help, this has been really beneficial.
