Angry Hissing iPod Integration

I had iPod integration installed in my 2006 SLK55 last week and their is a hissing sound I hear if the music is low enough and in between songs. It really annoys me but I'm not sure if I should bother bringing it back to the dealer. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have tried this with 3 iPods and the problem is always present, my iPods have been reset and the EQ is off as is sound check. Any advice would be appreciated!

Was it the Mercedes "integration" kit that was installed?

Try bumping up the volume on the iPod to maximum, and lowering the volume on the car stereo. You may just be over-amplifying a weak signal from the iPod.
