Clarion CZ201


$139.99 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built quality is very good, panel and buttons feel sturdy and solid. Many options for tuning sound to desired tone. Built in low pass filter makes adding a subwoofer easy, dramatic improvement in the sound.

The Cons:No way to make the clock display by default. A number of translation errors in the manual, although nothing critical that will affect setup. The display doesn't shows music info (folder, artist, song, etc) when playing a CD or USB as a default. U need to push 'D' and then it appears for a while only. Annoying and dangerous to the traffic.

The Clarion CZ201 is a basic CD receiver for car audio systems. This builds on the Clarion CZ101 by adding a front USB port, and is followed by the Clarion CZ301 which includes extra audio filters and HD radio ready features.

Output runs through 4 channels at 45 watts, and dual 2 volt RCA outputs are available for additional rear or subwoofer drivers.
