I've noticed the 06 TSX is a good factory sound system; but, it is +15 year old technology. The ELS sound system is a step up; but, that is also around the same age. The big advantage with the ELS is really shines with DVD-A. You will think you have a totally different system once you put DVD-A into the ELS. Sounds about the same for both systems with the nod going to ELS with FM, XM, CD, or AUX input.
