Digital media ready (DivX®)

DivX is a common media language that delivers a pure digital experience, Clarion has provided DivX playback on most AV products since 2008. DivX enriched video files deliver superior video quality and allow more information on a single disk. Once again Clarion delivers the features you expect.

Wide-ranging format compatibility

Enjoy a vast selection of movies and music with support of DVD, DivX, as well as MP3, WMA and iTunes AAC data stored on CD or DVD discs.

2-Zone entertainment

This separates the in-car environment into two discrete zones, allowing rear seat passengers to enjoy a DVD movie or iPod Video while the front seat passengers enjoy their favourite radio station or music from a USB memory device.

* USB and iPod can not be played back at the same time.

Subwoofer volume control

For added control, Clarion allows you to manage your sound system’s subwoofer output level directly from the main unit. This control functions separately from the volume control for increased functionality.

USB direct connection and control of even the newest iPods

Just connect the USB cable that is included with your iPod to the NX509A’s rear USB input to control your iPod. Using an optional CCA723 cable will even let you watch iPod Video on the screen. The same USB terminal can also be used to connect a USB memory device with digital music files stored on it.

* To connect an iPod, please use the USB cable provided with your iPod.

* For video playback , optional CCA723 cable required.

* Please see our website for iPod models that can be connected.

iPod control including iPod ABC search

Just connect the USB cable that’s included with your iPod to the NX509A’s USB input and you get complete control of your iPod including genre/album/song title browsing, complete with iPod ABC Search convenience. The functions of iPod’s control wheel are emulated on the multimedia station’s control dial, so virtually the same operations are possible from both the iPod or the multimedia station.

iPod ABC search

Press and hold the [DISP] button (1 sec.).








Virtually the same operations are possible from both the iPod and the main unit.

Leading-edge audio-acoustical technologies deliver unrivalled sound performance

• BBE MP Process

* This diagram illustrates the BBE MP effect

BBE® MP for better sounding MP3/WMA/AAC files

BBE MP (Minimised Polynomial Non-Linear Saturation) process improves digitally compressed sound such as MP3/WMA/AAC by restoring the harmonics that are lost through compression, thereby reproducing the warmth, details and nuances that you would otherwise miss. BBE MP enhanced harmonics even serve to make regular CDs sound better.

Beat EQ for user customisable sound

In addition to providing 3 preset equalisation patterns ― BASS BOOST, IMPACT, and EXCITE ― Clarion’s Beat EQ even lets you freely customise the level and range of the bass, midrange and treble portions of each pattern. Depending on your mood and the type of music, you can tune the sound exactly to your liking for a more fulfilling listening experience.

Built-in High Pass Filter & Low Pass Filter

The internal High Pass and Low Pass filters allow you to set the frequency range of the audio signal that’s output to each channel to best match the acoustic characteristics of the front and rear speakers and the subwoofer.

24-bit D/A converter for superb sound reproduction

The digital realm is made up of unnaturally square sound waves, as opposed to the smoothly undulating sound waves characteristic of the real-world environment. That is why Clarion’s 24-bit D/A (Digital-to-Analogue) converter over-samples the digital signal to recreate the natural nuances and expressions lost during the sound reproduction process.

MAGNA BASS EX for dynamic bass resonation

Now, Clarion’s new MAGNA BASS EX boosts the bass by nearly 10 dB at even lower frequencies around 50 Hz —lower than that of ordinary loudness circuits at around 100 Hz, to provide extra low— frequency impact. It even automatically compensates the volume level to ensure well-balanced dynamic bass at any level.

Open-ended connectivity enables flexible system expansion and upgrading

6-channel audio pre-out

Equipped with 2 channels for Front (L/R), 2 channels for Rear (L/R), and 2 channels for Subwoofers, the full set of RCA line outputs allows upgrading to a full-scale AV system with plenty of support for future system expansions.

Dedicated rear vision camera RCA input

Bluetooth-ready with BLT370
