Pandora® Internet radio

There are few things better on a road trip than discovering some new music. Clarion lets you tap into the power of Pandora in your car with their CZ702 CD receiver. All it takes is your iPhone® and the free Pandora app — just connect via USB and you can change stations and rate songs from your dash like you do online.

Hands-free calls and audio streaming

Clarion outfits the CZ702 with built-in Bluetooth so you can talk hands-free. When a call comes in, the receiver mutes the music while you talk to your caller over your car's speakers. The CZ702 features a driver's-side built-in microphone that'll pick up your end of the conversation, or you can add an optional mic for convertibles and other vehicles with high interior noise levels. Another big plus — you can also stream music directly into the CZ702 from a compatible phone or music player.

Easy iPod® and iPhone control

Once you connect your iPod or iPhone to the USB input, you'll enjoy outstanding sound quality and even keep your player charged as you drive. You can browse your music collection using the stereo's intuitive controls, or let your passengers control the tunes with included remote while you concentrate on driving. The 2-line display on this sharp-looking stereo keeps you informed of what's playing, and you can choose from 728 possible colors so the Clarion's illumination matches your dash.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Clarion stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Clarion, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    This is a great deck for the money. Has all the features I was looking for and a bunch I wasn't. The color change option is nice. The display is really hard to see in the daytime, and it's glossy so it reflects and glares.

    Pros: Great sound Looks nice Good features

    Cons: Hard to see during the day Wasn't free

    All the features I needed. Perfect!

    I wanted to replace my factory Jeep radio to get bluetooth, Pandora, Ipod controls, and retain the factory steering wheel radio buttons. This radio was a SMOKING deal. It does everything the Kenwood Excelon double din in my other car but at an 8th of the price. 5v pre-outs, built in microphone for hands free calling. Bluetooth pairing was absolutely as easy as it gets. Turn on bluetooth on your phone, let it find the radio, select pair, and make sure the 6 digit code on your phone matches. Easy. Very happy with my purchase, and Crutchfieds customer service. They were actually able to tell me what wires to use on the PAC adapter.

    Pros: Price Features Tons of colors to match your cars guages 5V pre-amp outputs including subwoofer Remote Works with factory steering wheel controls

    Cons: If your the impatient type, it does take a little bit to connect to an ipod and read it.

    The Clarion CZ702 was a huge disappointment! I really does not fit a BMW E36 because of the huge bloom of wires that need to be tucked in the back. A 15 minute job took hours, and now that it is (somewhat) installed the performance is terrible! I bought it to add Bluetooth to my car, but bluetooth operation is poorly executed, and only can store profiles for 3 phones. Without Bluetooth presets, It seems that to make a call you would have to go through a series of complicated steps. Too much while driving... And Bluetooth does not work on my car. Mic is fine, but no sound through speakers. Once I put it into the mode to listen to call through the car speakers, the unit freezes and needs to be reset! FM reception is poor also! Total piece of junk on all accounts, installation was a hassle, poor functionability (if it worked), and this unit is faulty. I can't wait to take it out of the car! I hate it! I cannot recommend this unit at all, and hope Crutchfield will refund. ...What a terrible experience...

    Pros: Looks nice, multiple colors.

    Cons: Terrible bluetooth implementation, poor build quality, poor wire management, Poor FM, Shouldn't be recommended for BMW 3 series (1992-1999) because it does not fit all the excess wires out the back!!

    I purchased a Sony MEX-N5000BT CD Receiver from Crutchfield and it was wonderful, but the fact that I had to mount an ugly mic, and that I would have to manually connect to Bluetooth each time was a big disappointment. I told Crutchfield about it and they sent this unit and refunded me the difference. Not only was this receiver $10 cheaper than the Sony, but it automatically connected me to Bluetooth, it played phone sounds through the speakers (The Sony did not) which I like, it's not for everyone, but I like knowing when I received texts. It also works with Hey Siri so I can text through voice, and if you have a text to voice app it will also play your texts you receive. (I'd disable this if you have passengers, awkward moments haha) Overall this does so much better.

    Pros: Colors are more defined Works with Siri Bluetooth auto connects Skip, Pause, Play, and Thumbs up and down songs all from the receiver Mic is built into the receiver USB is in the back of the receiver which allowed me to run it through the the A-Pillar so I could have a flush mount phone up higher and charge my phone. (Some may prefer usb in the front, but if you have Bluetooth there is no need for this, it just adds more wires and make it look less clean and professional looking, plus there

    Cons: The menu is hard to navigate without instructions. Took me 10 minutes to figure out how to set the clock, and only did I figure it out when I read the instructions. If you keep the manual, this will be easy. I advise leaving it in your glove box.

    Awesome stereo. Bluetooth works great. I use the bluetooth and use my phones media player to play FLAC files and the SQ is great! I only have 2 gripes. First, the display is too dim to be seen in daylight at all. The next is that i have Infinity primus 3 ohm components and after 5-10 minutes of high volume listening, The amp guard protection circuit comes on and I have to restart the radio. After I get my new amp for mids and hight problem will be gone. At normal listening volume or a little louder it works flawlessly.

    Pros: sound quality. all of the adjustability and outputs. Hot amp outputs. Bluetooth works great.

    Cons: Amp protection circuit trips with 3 ohm speakers at high volume. such as most Infinities including primus and reference and the JBL lineup. I think Harman is on a 3 ohm speaker kick. Second the display is terrible in the light no matter what color you choose.

    Sound and build quality is precisely what you would expect out of Clarion; clear clean sound in a solid package. The menu system for iPod access feels a tad convoluted; however this may be a side effect of using an older iPod Classic as opposed to a more modern device. For the price and the features, however, it is hard to beat. Highly recommended.

    Pros: Ease of installation, build quality, sound quality, overall feature set

    Cons: Menu navigation is lackluster, but useable.

    Nice head unit. Sounds great, easy to install, and looks very nice. Doesn't look OEM, but doesn't look cheesy either. Bluetooth and USB are great to have as options and work perfectly -- my Android phone pairs up with the stereo as soon as I turn on the car. USB is awesome, load up a big flash drive with tons of music and just set it to shuffle on a long road trip. Perfect.

    Display does get a little washed out in bright sunlight, but that could be party because I like the white/blue backlighting at night -- a bolder color might show better in the daytime. Keep the manual handy for a while.... this thing has so many features and adjustable options it took me a while to get the navigation down. Once you've used it a while though it's very logically laid out. Very happy with it, especially for $120.00 -- 15 years ago I was paying 3x that for the old Clarion DRX series that didn't have half the features of this, amazing how far things have come.

    Pros: Value for money, looks, features, sound quality.

    Cons: Display is a little light, too many options!

    You certainly can't beat it for the cost (119.00) is what i paid at Crutchfield. That's quite a discount. The sound is definitely an improvement over my older model Clarion. I've read reviews where the reviewer says that they hear sounds they never heard in their music before, well i have to agree and I've heard many systems before.

    My goal was to go 3way active. Sometimes i feel illiterate with wiring, but this wasn't too difficult and it turned out just fine. Nice looking HU too. Next i'm looking to upgrade my tweets and i'll be happy for a while. I have never had one problem with Crutchfields service. They answer quickly and they have good answers.

    Pros: Sound quality, easy to wire, and not to difficult to program the settings.

    Cons: Nothing negative that i can think of at this time.

    The Unit far exceeds radios of the past. There is so much you can do to manipulate the sound with this unit that it's easy to get lost. Take the time to read the instructions and play around with the audio settings and you will not be disappointed with your purchase. Sound quality is top notch and the installation is simple. Functionality takes some getting used to but pays off in the end.

    Pros: Good construction and design. Feels sturdy and reliable.

    Cons: Easily get lost in the audio settings and capabilities. Difficult at times to figure out what portion of the settings to be in to adjust something and then save the adjustments.

    Replaced older model with this new model. This one adds Bluetooth and 5 volts Preout. I really liked the 5V preout, much cleaner signal to the amps. Subwoofer control is buried in menus, takes too long to get to adjustment.

    Pros: 5v preout. Pretty easy to use. Clean sound. Great deal for this price range.

    Cons: Menus take a bit to get through to adjust subwoofer level.

On top of it all, this deck died after no more then 35hrs of use, Buy Anything Else and you will be much happier, then with this trash. the snd quality was good for the 30 or so hrs the deck worked.

    Getting SiriusXM in the unit for this price is nuts. That was the closer for me. In my Dakota, I didn't need much power and this unit worked out great. Always liked Clarion as a good brand product without the big time price. Happy I installed it and happier with Crutchfield's instruction sheets. Easy to follow instructions on dash disassembly. First time buyer at Crutchfield's Online and I know it won't be the last.

    Overall a great stereo for the money. I needed 3 sets of pre-outs due to keeping my Bose system and then to have the ability to add my own sub and this unit has it. Bluetooth works great for my iPhone and streams music with no issues. USB port with a decently long cable. Great radio for the money and am overall pretty happy with it.

    Pros: 3 sets of pre-outs, USB port, Bluetooth.

    Cons: Hate the built in EQ...would rather just have treble and bass adjustments.

    I installed in a 99 Town & Country. The factory stereo cd player stopped working years ago. I finally decided it was time to take the dive and just purchase a new stereo. I am so glad I did. The sound is incredible with my factory speakers. The sound quality really shocked me. I used to have this annoying vibration at the rear speaker, it seemed to vibrate the window. Well I am happy to say, that is gone. Not to mention I still have my steering wheel controls. I purchased a module that connects the stereo to my steering wheel controls and I am extremely pleased. I recommend this stereo with 5+ stars.

    Pros: Sound Quality is awsome. The back lights are pretty cool, I left mine on factory setting, and they constantly change color. Blue tooth, USB, and the list goes on. Highly recommend.

    Kinda wish I bought something else

    Blue tooth sucks and cuts out alot, have to go in and reconnect every time you enter (brothers Boss automatically does this at alot less cash then I paid) and to make my life better a week or two after the price dropped. But what can you do :( Really the cut out issues are the most annoying thing about it and ill probably have to go back to a aux cord which I bought this to get away from.

    Pros: Sounds pretty good, looks good

    Cons: Blue tooth is crap with the i pod touch instructions are crap Adjustments are complicated, more of an advanced user unit

    Just installed this receiver in my RAV4. So far, so good. Instructions for setup somewhat confusing but once figured it out (via call to Help line at Crutchfield) it was a breeze to "program". Color coded wiring harnesses (2) a MUST to make installation "possible". Connecting "dimmer" lead from receiver to "dimmer" lead on wiring harness disables auto headlights off when car is locked via remote. Another phone call to Crutchfield suggested not using the "dimmer" lead from receiver - problem solved. Overall, happy with product, installation and customer support.

    Pros: Price, Features, Appearance, Operation, Bluetooth excellent as well as SiruisXM

    Cons: Somewhat difficult to set-up once installed. Display could be brighter for daytime viewing, perfect at night.

    Overall this head unit is no harder or easier to master than your average single DIN unit. This has active crossover capability so it's better than anything at this price point and much higher! The color matching worked perfectly for my Kia and, aside from it being annoying to program time alignment and custom EQ from a single line display, it made my Polk dB/JBL GTO/PPI budget SQ system in my commuter sound better than I would have though cheap stuff could sound. I'd change the order and/or name of some things in the menu but honestly it takes 10 min to get used to what Clarion calls things. Oh, and it has Bluetooth but no external mic. The mic is in the head unit. It works fine, people say hey head me just fine. If you have a bigger or noisy car than your average econo ride then maybe buying the external mic is needed but I doubt it for most cars.

    Pros: Time alignment Active crossovers Great sound quality Build quality is good CD inserts and comes out fast HD radio with module Bluetooth works fine Buttons all make sense

    Cons: Two line display would be nice

    fantastic!! more than I expected and was easy for me to install

    Pros: easy installalation ,all the extra features, like blue tooth, love it. being a retired telephone cable splicer I never thought I would see the day that I could send & receive calls on a radio in my car in stero surround sound. what next?

    Cons: the wiring hook up could use a better print than what comes with the unit. not quite clear.

    Great stereo

    Great head unit. Haven't found another at this price point with similar SQ. Easily as good as the Kenwood KDC X897 it replaced, if not better.

    Pros: Great value, great SQ. All around acceptable product.

    Cons: No major cons. Not as intuitive as my old Kenwood Excelon units, but then I'm still getting used to it

    This sound grate and easily installed. The only reason that I gave it four stars is that it will take some time to get it set up the time , screen color , sound , ECS .

    Pros: Good price and easily installed and sound grate for the price.

    Cons: It takes a while to get it setup.

    At first I was scared to buy this product cause it seemed to cheap to be good. The kids talked me into it tho and I'm so glad they did. The kids are 14 and 12 and just think its the coolest radio ever. Being teens I guess we can take there word for it lol. I was very pleased with how well it sounded. The kids love the fact they have a remote control now so they don't have to yell from the back mom can you change this or mom can you turn this up. I would defiantly suggest this radio to my friends. For the price of it you cant pass it up!!

    Pros: easy install, MUCH room for expanding, sound quality is great, easy pairing

    Cons: owners manual could be better

    I bought this unit to replace a terrible stereo that the previous owner had installed. What a difference! The installation took less than an hour, and it powered right up, and paired with my phone. The sound is much improved, although I still plan to put better speakers I'm later! Excellent stereo for the money.

    Pros: Great product for the money!

    Cons: None.

    Love this player. Purchased it mainly for the Bluetooth features for steaming music from my many Apple products. I also enjoy the viable color display, really pops with my red leather interior and red gauges. Install was fairly straight forward. The harnesses and mounting hardware provided by Crutchfield were on point for a seamless install.

    Pros: Viable color display allows for a broad range of customization as with more expensive packages without the cost. Great Bluetooth features with easy pairing and steaming audio.

    Cons: no complaints for the cost.

    Great for the price

    Replaced the head unit in my 96 Maxima with no issues. All features seem to work great, but I don't use HD or SiriusXM. For reference, this is much louder than the factory head unit was. Turning it to 30% is already much louder than the stock unit at 100% (which is uncomfortable for me anyway). I can't see why anyone would need an amplifier unless they were trying to entertain a crowd at a tailgate. I wish it would read FLAC or use m3u playlists, but it's still a great upgrade and those are downfalls I can deal with.

    Pros: USB/iPod connection in the back means I don't have to have my iPod in the front anymore. AM/FM tuner is sensitive. Display seems good enough to me. Bluetooth call quality seems excellent. People haven't had a problem hearing me with the built in mic. It seems to have some noise reduction as well. Bluetooth audio streaming works without a hitch.

    Cons: USB connection appears to be hardwired into the unit, so if it becomes damaged it's not a quick replacement. 2 line display is fine, but it would be nice if it allowed for faster scrolling through long lists of tracks. No matter how fast you turn the volume knob, the scroll speed is limited. It's not terribly intuitive. I decided to keep the manual in the glove box in case I ever need to find a function or setting because some are hidden by long-pressing buttons, and I usually just toss manua

    The Clarion CZ702 is a great radio for the price. It's very user friendly and easy to figure out. The instructions are helpful to get you on the right path for setup and the path is easy to follow from there. The sound is amazing even with the factory speakers in my car. I thought I would have to replace the speakers after listening to the factory AM/FM radio through them but after hearing the difference by just replacing the head unit I'll be keeping the speakers. This unit looks good in my dash and the display is customizable for your preferences. It also has a lot of features for a reasonable price.

    Pros: User friendly, nice looking, great sound

    Cons: The display can be hard to see in bright day light with some of the display colors, there is no direct way to get to a satallite radio station without scrolling through the list

    awesome

    Wow! I must say that it appears Clarion is on track to regain their former glory. Having used Pioneer products for the last 14 years, I decided to move back to Clarion after researching their line up and settled on this fantastic CZ702 HU. The Bluetooth connectivity and the rear USB port were the defining features for me. After installing this unit, this thing out powers the outgoing Pioneer unit by 5 watts.(Installed in a 2002 Crown Victoria) Bluetooth setup with a Galaxy Nexus was painless; music and phone contacts, check; goodbye wires! There are plenty of options to shape the sound spectrum, but the coolest thing is Time Alignment. While not as accurate as a stand alone Time Alignment module, you can adjust the stereo imaging so the sound is coming from space in the car, not directly from the speakers. Just imagine listening to a high-end listening room. Kudos to Clarion for bringing audiophile applications to a larger audience. In fact, it was only a few years ago that Clarion was one of the only companies offering time alignment systems to sync the output of each speaker to the listener's ear at the same time. You can spend $350.00 on a Pioneer DEH-80PRS, but I like keeping money in my pocket.

    Pros: The value of Time Alignment capability alone makes the price worth it!

    Cons: The instruction manual was useless. The system is not immediately user friendly, but once you figure it out, it's an awesome HU.

    great!
