Cypress, Calif. May 18, 2007 – Clarion Corporation of America announced that it received a CNET Editors’ Choice award for its MAX675VD Multimedia Center, 2-DIN DVD multimedia station with CeNET and 7-inch touch panel controls. The coveted CNET Editors’ Choice award recognizes outstanding consumer electronics that represent the best available choice for quality, performance, design, service, value, and its logo is a mark of excellence denoting the best possible investment for consumers.
[ Note : The MAX675VD is the North American representation of the MAX676VD currently available in Australia.]
CNET Editors’ Choice winners are recognized as top products in their respective technology categories, and contribute to the standard by which all future products are judged. A key selection requirement is that it must also change the competitive landscape of its market, whether through innovative features, exceptional value for the price, remarkable ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to the lives of its users.
According to Kevin Massy of CNET, “The Clarion MAX675VD is one of the most feature-packed and user-friendly in-car entertainment systems we have reviewed. The star feature of the Clarion MAX675VD is its iPod compatibility. However, unlike many of the other systems we have seen, the Clarion unit's iPod control interface is nearly as easy to use as an iPod itself.”
“We are very excited about the CNET Editor’s Choice award. The MAX675VD is one of our best engineered products ever and represents many of the emerging technologies consumers want,” said Adam Thomas, Vice President of Clarion Marketing. “The CNET Editors’ Choice award symbolizes the very best.”
