Enjoy Your Music
The CZ300 plays back your CDs and burnt CD-R/RW discs, but it will also take CD-DA discs loaded with MP3/WMA/AAC music files, for hours of listening on one disc. You can also play back audio files directly from a USB thumb drive using the USB port.

H.M.I. Balances Design and Usability
Clarion's quest for a superior H.M.I. (Human-Machine Interface) resulted in this year's distinctive "starburst" control button array. Buttons are clustered symbolically for intuitive operation, with a large rotary volume control that is blue illuminated for easy recognition and sensational looks.
BeatEQ for User Customizable Sound
In addition to providing 3 preset equalization patterns--BASS BOOST, IMPACT, and EXCITE--Clarion's BeatEQ even lets you freely customize the level and range of the bass, midrange and treble portions of each pattern. You can tune the sound to your liking, depending on the category of music, for a more fulfilling listening experience.
4ch/2V RCA Output with Subwoofer Control
With 2 sets of RCA outputs, you are free to add external power amplifiers to create a more powerful, sophisticated audio system. Also, independent volume control is enabled for the subwoofer so you can adjust the level of bass output to your liking at any time, regardless of the output level of the other channels.
