CD and WMA/MP3 Playback
Enjoy your favorite CDs or CD-R/RW discs, or burn CD-R/RWs full of MP3/WMA digital audio files for hours of playback on a single disc.
Not feeling like waiting for a disc to burn? Throw a bunch of tunes on a USB thumb drive and play back directly, using the front-panel USB input.
Superior iPod and iPhone Connectivity
Enjoy the familiar operational feel of your iPod and iPhone, with album/artist/song/playlist on-screen display and more. The simple control mode enables system operation using just the iPod/iPhone controls, including ABC search. For audio playback, just use a standard 30-pin to USB cable, like that provided with your iPod / iPhone. As an added bonus, iTunes Tagging via the HD Radio makes it easy to purchase the songs you like.
Large Rotary Volume Control
This old-school, large volume control knob, combined with the ergonomically symmetrical design of the unit, helps to provide equally comfortable operation from the driver side or passenger side.
Oversized rotary volume control for ease of use and comfortable operation.
Enjoy direct control of your iPod/iPhone from the receiver.
13-segment 10 x 2-line White LCD Display
The 13-segment 2-line display on the CX201 allows numbers and characters to be displayed clearly–in all lighting conditions. Whether you want to know what song is playing on satellite radio or just need to know the time, it’s always easy to see.
Beat EQ and MAGNA BASS EX for Precisely Powerful Sound
In addition to providing 3 preset equalization patterns, Beat EQ lets you customize the level and range of the bass, midrange, and treble of each pattern. In addition, MAGNA BASS EX boosts the 50Hz range, to deliver dynamic bass performance. You’ll get full-range sound at any volume level.
50W x 4 MOS-FET Power Amp
CX201 has a MOS-FET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) power amplifier capable of delivering 50W x 4 of high quality sound with superior linearity and less distortion than conventional power amps even with the volume cranked up.
Two 2V Preamp Outputs
If you still need a little more power, the CX201 provides two stereo (four channels) of two-volt RCA outputs (front + rear/subwoofer) for expanding your system, complete with high- and low-pass filters and a separate subwoofer volume.
Sirius SSP Direct Connect Ready
The CZ201 also supports direct connection with an optional Sirius Satellite Radio tuner. The SCC1 Sirius Connect Vehicle Tuner plugs into the back of CZ401 with no adapters necessary. Enjoy high quality genre-specific programming from music and talk, to news and traffic, via direct satellite feed to your car.
