Clarion CZ702 Vehicle CD Digital Music Player Receiver
As Clarion's top-of-the-line single-DIN CD receiver, the CZ702 offers plenty of features and performance. The less expected part is that you get all of that at a very reasonable price, making this one of the better-balanced choices out there. The CZ702 comes with built-in Bluetooth, allowing for hands-free communication as well as wireless music streaming. The front-panel auxiliary input and rear-mounted USB input also allow you to connect your devices easily. The buttons on the stereo become iPod/iPhone controls when your device is plugged in, allowing you to put your device away and keep your eyes primarily on the road. The internal amplifier puts out 19 watts RMS through 4 channels, with a peak of 50 watts. The excellent sound quality is enough for a great basic setup, while those wanting to build up their own system will be happy that the CZ702 is equipped with 6-channel, 5-volt preamp outputs. Despite all this, the Clarion CZ702 is very reasonably priced. The MSRP is around $250, but this stereo can easily be found for under $200 online.
