Music, video, information content and their applications change in the blink of an eye. Today, USB and SD cards have emerged as the storage media of choice for many digital lifestyle products on the market. This year, Clarion's products take advantage of popular storage media allowing you to enjoy your favourite MP3/WMA format music files played directly from USB memory players and SD cards. The incorporation of access ports via the face of these products makes connecting peripheral equipment easy. By connecting your mobile audio player, you can enjoy your compressed audio files through your car audio system. Compatibility with a wide range of media seamlessly extends the use of your everyday office storage drive.
