THE LINK BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR MUSIC

Music more than just sound, it’s a personal life style.

From hip-hop, reggae, jazz and even disco, we all move to the beat of a different drum.

With the options for having your music at your side more diverse, Clarion has adopted an ‘Any Source, Any Time’ way of thinking.

With provisions for USB memory devices, SD card slots, front panel auxiliary inputs and easy to use iPod® interfaces, there’s no portable device you can’t enjoy through your audio system.

AUX (Input) Terminal in Front for Quick Connection with Portable Music Players

Plug it in and crank it up! Connect any audio and video portable device, The front panel auxiliary input featured on several source units provides connectivity with clarity.

USB Terminal to Increase Connectivity to Variety of Peripheral Devices

Drag and drop - that’s all you have to do to copy your entire music collection onto a USB memory stick.

Then simply plug it in to your Clarion USB-enabled radio and listen to countless hours of your favourite music. For 2007, Clarion USB-enabled radios will allow you to access 15,000 songs from a single USB device, and view ID3 tag information to let you know what you’re listening to.

Control of iPod®s on the Main Unit

The EA1276 interface takes iPod integration to another level. Featuring the capability of navigation through playlist, similar to changing tracks on a CD. The EA1276 will charge the battery in your iPod as you listen, so you’ll be ready to go when you arrive at your destination.

Support of Wide Variety of Digital Era Media and Compression Formats

Buying music online is as easy is a click of the mouse. Now, playing that music is just as easy. Clarion adds Apple iTunes® AAC file support to our existing MP3 and WMA compressed digital audio compatibility.

“Sound Restorer” to Complement Lost Sound Contents during Compression

When audio files are compressed into MP3, WMA, or AAC formats, every attempt is made to remove only that information which is not easily heard, this is called perceptual encoding. The drawback is that frequencies over 10kHz are often lost or distorted.

Clarion’s exclusive “Sound Restorer” processing recreates those subtle nuances and harmonics back into the recording. Compressed music files, won’t sound like compressed music.
