CZ Series concept — “Starburst” style

CZ500A/ CZ200A/ CZ100A are characterised by the “starburst” control button array, appearing prominently on the front panel. These buttons are grouped to offer intuitive and direct operation along with the large, blue-illuminated rotary volume control, and also play a major part in giving the series its new look. CZ Series: The new star on the block.

FB Series concept — Solid wave

FB276BT/ FB286BTB are also mechanism-free, linking to enjoyment through its SD card slot, as well as built-in Bluetooth® wireless connection. From the solid look and feel of the edge-lit control panel to the simplicity of the central volume control, these source units provide an H.M.I. that is in tune with today’s users. FB Series: Linked to you.

FZ Series concept — Less is more

FZ709A/ FZ409A feature a mechanism-free design, without any disc drives or other moving parts, for superior resistance to shocks and vibrations. The H.M.I. features an OEL (Organic Electro Luminescence) display that delivers graphics as smooth as silk with a simple icon capacitive touch zone providing intuitive and easy operation. FZ Series: Minimalism at its best.

2-DIN solution — Big on convenience

If your car accepts 2-DIN installation, the CX609A or DUZ386MP could be the solution that fits your needs.

Both feature a centre-positioned volume control and large buttons for easy operation, taking advantage of the larger surface area allowed by the 2-DIN configuration.

Superb sound

Sculpt the sound to match your preference or environment. Beat EQ’s 3-band parametric equaliser, 24-bit D/A converter to maximise DVD and CD source quality, BBE® MP to improve the sound of compressed digital audio, and more, all contribute to the creation of richer sound with more impact.
