An innovative system centred on digital transmission

Digital music has become a part of our daily lives and will only evolve from here. According to the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), 41 billion people in the world had subscribed to a paid streaming service in 2014. However, more and more conventional built-in audio systems continue to turn to digital and analogical signals today.

Therefore, thanks to Full Digital Sound, Clarion has revolutionised the production of car audio systems while preserving high-level digital sound quality, allowing drivers to fully enjoy the benefits of digital music. This innovation proves once again their level of expertise of the Japanese brand within the field of built-in audio systems for the last 10 years, presenting audiophile consumers smart innovative solutions to improve their in-car musical experience at last.
Full Digital Sound is the first speaker-sound system to be developed solely based on the transmission of signals through a digital network, this means the signals are transferred from another digital source directly to the speakers with minimal quality loss. In this way, it is no longer necessary to use a signal converter or an amplifier, which is still the case for conventional sound systems.
The hi-fi quality and purity of sound that’s emanated awakens passengers and allows a one-of-a-kind experience in the car, and also carries the advantage of a simple installation process and reduction in weight and electrical consumption, compared to conventional systems.

Select technologies for exceptional sound fidelity

Full Digital Sound brings together the latest technologies to produce pure high-resolution sound. This is thanks to Clarion’s own brand LSI; the world’s first LSI for automotive grade, which efficiently converts digital signals into sound, achieving higher quality playback of full digital sound without any recourse to an amplifier.

The system also incorporates Dnote digital signal processing technology and 6-layer multi-voice coil, transmitting multiple digital signals directly to the voice coil to achieve a precise cone stroke. By consolidating 6 different vibrational forces, the speaker delivers high-powered high-quality sound.

A multipurpose system compatible with all configurations

Full Digital Sound has multipurpose functions and can be configured to all kinds of audio systems, adapted to your preferences, for example, added audio speakers.
Compatible with numerous audio sources, such as ‘autoradio’, the traditional car audio system, as well as all external digital audio readers, including Android smartphones and tablets that connect through a USB cable.
The external commander unit, powered with Z3, makes the system configuration intuitive and perceptive, thanks to a dedicated application on your smartphone/tablet. Finally, the processor has a compact and subtle design, allowing installation in various parts of the vehicle, for example, under the seat, for maximum discretion.
With this technology jewel, Clarion marks a breakthrough in audio system technology, taking drivers to an unprecedented musical universe!
