The DXZ778RUSB has more source connections and format capabilities than any before. A 728-colour motorised detachable control panel with “SLIDETRAK” control serves as your interface to USB and Bluetooth® connectivity. If your music is digital, the DXZ778RUSB is ready with MP3/WMA and AAC playback capabilities from CD-R/W or a USB memory stick. It joins together a 3-way crossover network, 6-volt/6-channel audio pre-out, 24-bit D/A converter and digital time alignment control with dynamic sound to enable flexible sound customisation and awesome sound in your car.

Clarion takes H.M.I. to yet another level with the introduction of SLIDETRAK. With a simple swipe of the fingertip, it provides precise control of the key features on the head unit. In addition, SLIDETRAK maximises the available space on the head unit’s face to create a large easy-to-read display. SLIDETRAK allows an increase in button size for easy identification of buttons. This way, you can keep your eyes on the road while operating the source unit. This promotes safer driving.

USB Connector

Copy, Paste, Play - with Clarion’s USB Connector, accessing your music collection is easy. With access to up to 65,025 songs, there’s seemingly no limit to your musical boundaries.

728 variable colours

Colour-tuning the look of your audio system is easy. Clarion also lets you fine-tune the look of your source unit with 728-colour illumination. Choose from 13 different preset colours to let the DXZ778RUSB slowly morph through the entire spectrum or fine tune the Red, Green and Blue levels to match your dash perfectly.

MP3/WMA/iTunes® AAC compatible with ID3-TAG display

These days formats like MP3 & WMA are standard; AAC with its higher compression ratio are supported. This way you can listen to music data downloaded from music stores on the internet in your car. The ID3-Tag display feature simplifies ease of use for all three formats.

iPod interface EA1276 control

Connecting an iPod ensures you enjoy all tunes in your iPod library through your car audio system. As the unit recognises the connection automatically, it is possible to fully operate the iPod as if it is a part of your system.

Sound Restorer

Hear your music the way it was meant to be heard. Clarion’s Sound Restorer recreates the high frequency information that is lost during compression. The result is clear and detailed sound.

24-bit D/A converter

A key component in the transfer of digital data from a CD into analogue sound is Clarion’s 24-bit D/A converter. Because 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, Clarion’s embedded 24-bit D/A converter recreates the natural nuances and expressions lost during the sound reproduction process.

Time Alignment

To achieve optimum sound positioning, ideally each speaker should be located equidistantly from the listener. However, it is almost impossible to realise this within the environment of a car. Digital Time Alignment works to virtually change speaker distances, thus creating a seemingly optimal sound field. Adjustment is possible from 0 to 501.4 cm in 2.3 cm steps.

6-volt/6-channel output

Equipped with 6V/6ch outputs for reproduction of sources with high sound quality. Together with crossover settings, it can be used to output to various speaker systems like Front 2ch + Rear 2ch + Subwoofer 2ch.

212 watts MOS-FET power amplifier

There’s only one way for Clarion’s DXZ778RUSB to deliver 4-channel × 53 watts of unyielding power output and superior linearity: MOS-FET amplification, or, otherwise known as Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transmitter amplification. Smaller and more efficient than conventional power supplies, this MOS-FET amplification circuitry delivers power with less distortion and zero On/Off switching noise. So turn it up, or down for easy listening. MOS-FET amplification — your music has never sounded better.

Digital Z-Enhancer

Clarion’s Digital-Z Enhancer controls P-EQ, HPF, and LPF through the DSP, allowing you to select from three equalising patterns that emphasise the range of tones in the treble and bass regions respectively while maintaining perfect acoustic balance. Furthermore, by adding gain adjustment (HI, MID, LOW) to the 3 equalising patterns, it is now possible to choose from 9 different equalising patterns to customise the sound quality pattern so that it matches your speaker system or selected music source perfectly.


Separates the sound spectrum into different bands so you can minimise peaking and phase cancellation, which can result in muddy sound when using a 2-way or 3-way speaker system. X-over circuitry also optimises each output range, resulting in more natural and smoother transitions between ranges. And since it’s built-in, it requires no additional equipment or expertise. The cut-off frequency, filter, slope and phase can be adjusted for each band, enabling precise sound tuning. You can also set a Time Alignment value for each speaker for optimal sound matched to the vehicle’s acoustics.
