New CZ209E offers plenty of playback options at the right price

Part of Clarion’s 2009 line-up of stylish in-car audio solutions, the all-new Clarion CZ209E answers the call for excellent spec without excessive price, delivering that must-have for serious audio fans, iPod playback, in the process.

At a typical selling price of just £149, the CZ209E receiver delivers direct iPod compatibility via a rear USB port, whilst MP3 and WMA file playback through alternative stand-alone media players is also possible via the rear USB, or the front-facing 3.5mm mini jack AUX input.

CD, including CD-R/RW is possible through a single front facing CD slot, whilst the unit makes use of an RDS-EON tuner with 18 FM, 6MW/LW station presets.

The new unit also allows for the safe receiving and making of phone calls, with the optional addition of a BLT373 Bluetooth transceiver.

To ensure there’s no compromise on audio quality, the CZ209E delivers a mighty 4 x 50 watts output, plus Z-Enhancer and Magna BASS EX sound enhancement to boost enjoyment and allow for greater customisation to suit individual taste, whilst 4-channel audio pre-outs allow for installation of additional speakers/amps.

The CZ209E sports a user-friendly rotary volume control, whilst a white LCD display and blue button illumination deliver stunning good looks that belie the price.
