Clarion’s Full Digital Technology Revolutionizes the Realm of Car Audio
Digital-to-Digital from Source to Speakers, Clarion’s Revolution is Pure and Simple
Full Digital Sound achieves full digital signal transfer from the digital source to the speakers for direct input of high-resolution audio sources without sound degradation. Furthermore since it efficiently converts digital signals to sound, the system is capable of delivering 4 times the power output of a conventional full digital system*1, while achieving power consumption that’s only about 1/5th that of analogue systems*2.
