Base audio vs. "Premium Audio" ??

Hey everyone. I'm a new member but I've been reading threads on the site for a while. I am getting ready to order my CT200h (super pumped) and I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on a question.
I noticed there is no ML option for the CT, and the "Premium Audio" is an option, as opposed to other models where the premium is the base. I guess my question is: is there a huge difference in base and "premium" for the CT? I drive a TSX with premium audio now. Am I going to be disappointed if I don't go with the premium audio package? I mainly use my Ipod via the aux jack.
Just trying to see if the extra grand is worth it when I can't really find any information on the base system. Is the console the same with the base and the premium? I only noticed a difference in nav vs. non-nav pictures online. Can anyone help?

I am having the same dilema.. I am going to the dealer again tomorrow to listen to both 6 speakers and 10 speaker audio and decide which car to get.. For sure the 10 speakers will sound better.. but I want to see how bad the 6 speakers are.. If it's not bad, I'd save about $4k for forgoing the premium audio + nav since they are packaged together in west coast of us.

I'm no audiophile and certainly could have done without the premium audio but I settled for what I could get at the moment. My dealer had 8 vehicles, each was a "premium" model (moonroof, heated seats) and all had premium audio at a minimum. All the vehicles they could get over the next couple weeks were spec'd out in a similar manner. I mostly listen to AM talk radio... not much need for 10 speakers there.
