Article by Christian Andrei, on March 13, 2011

Clarion, the world’s largest maker of in-car audio, multimedia and satellite navigation systems, has added the CZ201E into its 2011 lineup. The CZ201E is targeted at individuals who simply love to listen to their music while on the move. It is built around what audiophiles need, direct iPod/iPhone and USB connectivity and playback.

It is in line with Clarion’s 2011 lineup of fresh-faced audio units. To attain direct iPod/iPhone playback and control, one simply has to connect the USB cable supplied with an iPod/iPhone to the rear USB dongle on the CZ201E. The CZ201E also supports alternative mass storage devices, either by a conveniently located interface or a 3.5mm mini jack auxiliary input on the front fascia; thus, enabling playback of both WMA and MP3 files.

A single front-facing CD slot accommodates CD playback and CD-R/RW, while the unit uses an RDS-EON tuner with 18 FM, 6MW/LW station presets.

A Bluetooth-enabled and paired mobile phone and through the optional addition of a BLT373 Bluetooth transceiver allows for safe receiving and making of phone calls on the CZ201E. Guaranteeing that audio quality is not compromised, Clarion has built the CZ201E to have a powerful 4 x 45-watt output via an integral MOS-FET power amplifier.

It also has a Magna BASS EX sound enhancement option to boost enjoyment and enable greater customization to suit individual taste while 4-channel audio pre-outs allow optional installation of additional speakers/amps/screens.

With the inclusion of an optional stand-alone monitor (VMA773) and USB video cable (CCA748), iPod and iPhone owners can also watch video files. For improved overall ease-of-use, Clarion’s star-burst style blue button illumination fascia is mirrored in the rotary volume control, which is as part of new H.M.I (Human Music Interface). P.S.
