Clarion CZ702, FZ502, CZ302, CZ202, CZ102 Head Units

For 2012, Clarion introduced five in-dash 1-DIN car audio source units that focus on wireless connectivity and digital media playback, while keeping pricing affordable. New features include SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility, Pandora internet radio compatibility and built-in Parrot Bluetooth for hands-free calling and stereo audio streaming

Clarion’s flagship model, the CZ702 is the most advanced single DIN CD head unit in the group offering a whole host of premium audio features such as Digital Time Alignment, 5 band parametric equalizer, 24 bit Digital to Analog Converter, MOSFET 50W x 4 amplifiers, Digital 2 or 3 Way Crossovers, and 5 volt 6 channel RCA outputs. Users can choose any of 728 lustrous colors for the LCD and keys, while the 2-line display is eye catching and easy-to-use.

The 1DIN CD CZ702, like its sister model the CZ302 and Clarion’s newest digital media player FZ502, all offer built-in Parrot Bluetooth for hands-free calling and stereo audio streaming. Also on tap are SiriusXM with iTunes Song Tagging as well as Pandora internet radio compatibility via an iPhone USB connection. The CZ702 and FZ502 are also HD Radio Ready with iTunes Tagging.

In addition to the above, the CZ302 includes front panel USB with slide cover, iPod/ iPhone direct control via USB, Aux input and sound enhancements such as Beat EQ and Magna Bass EX.

The newest digital media player is the FZ502, offering an eye catching 7-way rotary key with blue illumination and 2-line display along with Clarion’s anti-theft security flashing LED. Everything you would expect from a high-end mechless source unit with advanced sound quality including SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility, Pandora internet radio compatibility, built-in Parrot Bluetooth and HD Radio Ready with a not so high-end price of $199.99.

Other Clarion 2012 models, previously introduced in November 2011 – the CZ202 and CZ102, are anything but basic CD head units and offer great value for the money. Clarion’s CZ202 single DIN CD head unit is Clarion’s first that works with Pandora internet radio via an iPhone USB connection. It also has a front panel USB with a slide cover and has excellent sound quality.
