Clarion CZ309


$200.00 Released February, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Plenty of features packed into a low-priced unit, good value. CD and MP3 playback is reliable and consistent, doesn't ever have a hard time reading anything.

The Cons:Interface is very awkward and counter-intuitive. Adjusting any setting means pressing several buttons in sequence. Volume knob is small and smooth making it difficult to turn.

The CZ309 is an in-car A/V receiver which provides up to 200 watts of peak power from Clarion's 2009 lineup.  The receiver is designed with a single line display, rotary volume control, and a detachable face for security.
