iPod® direct for seamless enjoyment of your music

iPod® direct for seamless enjoyment of your music

Personal audio players, due to their ever-decreasing size and increasing capacity, are infusing new possibilities into car entertainment. Clarion source units offer direct connectivity with iPod, the preeminent personal audio product. All you have to do is connect the iPod to the Clarion source unit using the USB cable and all those tunes you carry on iPod can be enjoyed through the car’s audio system. (Front USB: DXZ586USB/DXZ386USB. Rear USB: DXZ786USB/DUZ386MP.)

* Use the USB cable supplied to connect the iPod.

* See the Clarion website for iPod models that can be connected.

Bluetooth® for handsfree communication and wireless music play

This function enables integrated operation with a Bluetooth mobile phone so you can enjoy handsfree communication through your car system. Smooth in-car communication supports a safer driving experience. In addition to the FB286BTB/FB276BT with built-in Bluetooth, the DXZ786USB/ DXZ586USB/ DXZ386USB/ DB286USB/ DB186MP/ DUZ386MP/ DUB276MP/ DUB276MPW also offer Bluetooth when used in conjunction with BLT370.

Compatible with WMDRM 10 Digital Content Copyright Management format

WMDRM 10 is a copyright management format used in digital audio and video content such as music and movies. Even files that are legally purchased cannot be played back if the source unit doesn’t support this technology. Clarion’s source units are always in step with the latest technological trends to afford maximum usability, and the WMDRM 10 format is no exception. Clarion assures playback and enjoyment of WMDRM 10 format music files downloaded through corresponding online music distributor.

* Playback of WMDRM content from a PC on the in-vehicle unit is through a compatible portable audio player.

* Please see the Clarion website for Portable audio players that can be connected.

FB286BTB and FB276BT are mechanism-free memory audio source units where functionality and design converge at the highest levels. They support SD card, giving them data compatibility with personal computers and mobile media players. The 2-DIN USB source unit DUB276MP/ DUB276MPW brings the concept of modern living into your car. And the list continues, including the DUZ386MP with its solid and stately design that perfectly matches your instrument panel, as well as the WXZ466MP with its 6-disc changer and home audio type design.
