sound reproduction. Even the material
used to wrap your vehicle’s seats can
hamper the travel of sound. Clarion’s AntiDistortion Filter corrects these problems,
preventing high- and low-range frequencies from becoming inaudible. This is done
without any additional frequency boost to
compensate for the inherent problems,
which can result in muffled, dull sounds
generated by mutual phase distortion. This
allows the system to focus on emphasizing
the natural frequency characteristics of the
sound source. The anti-distortion filter also
restores the sound produced from overused CDs, providing a new sense of clarity.

212W MOS-FET power
amplifier
Uses a MOS-FET power
supply for superior linearity and power handling capabilities. Its
separated L and R
channel power/ground
lines drive the Power
IC separately. In
addition to accelerated switching, it minimizes power loss
for ample low-load
drive performance.
And in high-load situations, like when the
volume is cranked up,
it provides effective
heat exchange for high power amplification in a small unit.
Subwoofer control
For added control, Clarion allows you to
manage your sound system’s subwoofer
output level directly from the source unit.
24-Bit D/A converter
A key component in the transfer of
digital data from a CD into analog sound is Clarion’s 24-Bit
D/A Converter. Since the digital
realm is made up of unnaturally
square sound waves, as
opposed to the smoothly undulating
sound waves characteristic of the realworld environment, Clarion’s embedded
24-Bit D/A Converter recreates the natural
nuances and expressions lost during the
sound reproduction process.

NEW ERA SOUND... NEW ERA INNOVATION
“AC-Processor IV” for next-generation digital sound
Digital Time Alignment works to move away
the speakers in virtual, so that the desirable
listening field can be easily realised.
The range can be adjusted from 0 to 501.4cm
in 2.3cm steps.
Digital Crossover
Separates the sound spectrum into different bands so you can minimize peaking
and phase cancellation, which can result in
muddy sound when using a 2-way or 3way speaker system. crossover circuitry
also optimizes each output range, resulting
in more natural and smooth 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.
Anti Distortion Filter
ADF (Anti Distortion Filter) is a newly
developed equalising system, which is
designed to match peak of frequency curve
to the original one. Conventional tone con-
processing
trol or loudness is effective for emphasising bass/treble sound, however, due to
phase discordance, it sometimes damages
the original sound. Thanks to the Clarion’s
latest sound technology, ADF is able to
reinforce bass/treble sound without causing such distortion, so that the original
sound can be lively reproduced after
equalization. Three preset patterns and
one user memory is provided.

Clarion’s CD operational
safeguards
Clarion’s CD operational safeguards
allow the CD mechanism to detect
disc size, prior disc-in-drive detector,
and auto reload. A special tapered
loading roller precisely centers the
CD onto the drive spindle. Since the
roller mechanism is tapered, only the
edges of the CD are touched, eliminating the possibility of scratches. A
sensor prevents disc loading when
one is already in the player by closing
a loading gate.

53W MOS-FET power amplifier
There’s only one way for Clarion’s
DXZ656MP to deliver 53W × 4 channels 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 circuit delivers power with
less distortion and zero On/Off switching
noise. So you can crank up the volume or
set it low for easy listening. Either way, with
MOS-FET, your music has never sounded
quite like this.
