The multicolor display, pop-up rotary volume knob, and motorized, detachable faceplate on Clarion's ProAudio DXZ725 are just some of the over-the-top features built into this outstanding CD receiver. The CD section offers ultra-clean performance, thanks to the zero-bit mute circuit which mutes the receiver's output when no signal is present. The super-sensitive Magi-Tune+ tuner hauls in distant stations and makes them sound local.

Use the 3-band (treble, midrange, and bass) parametric EQ to adjust the sound to your own tastes. An auxiliary input allows easy connection of an MP3 player, VCR, video game, or any external source. The DXZ725 will control a CD or MD changer . Three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs allow you to build your dream amplifier/speaker system.

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

In addition to the three factory presets, you may store your own settings under the "User Custom" preset. The factory presets are "Bass Boost" (bass emphasized), "Impact" (bass and treble emphasized), and "Excite" (bass and treble emphasized, mids de-emphasized). When "Bass Boost" is selected, you can adjust the bass setting from -3dB to +3dB in 1dB increments.

Instant Station Recall (ISR): This feature gives you one touch recall of a single favorite radio station (this is in addition to the 18 FM and 6 AM presets).

Zero-Bit Detector Mute Circuit: This circuit mutes output when no audio signal is detected for absolute quiet between CD tracks.

CD Text: When playing a CD encoded with CD Text, this unit will display the CD Text information. When a title is longer than 11 characters, you can make the title scroll by pressing the "Title" button.

CD/CD Changer/TV Titling: Titles, up to 10 characters long, can be stored and recalled from memory for individual CDs, discs in a changer magazine, or TV stations. 50 titles may be entered for the CD mode and 15 may be entered for TV tuner mode. In CD changer mode, you may enter 100 CD titles when using the DCZ625 or 50 titles when using the CDC1255z changer.

Top Play Button: Pressing the "Top" button while a CD is playing will start the disc playing from track 1 again.

Auto Reload: When a CD is ejected and left sticking out of the CD slot for 15 seconds, the unit automatically reloads the CD to protect if from damage. This feature works with 5" (12cm) CDs, but it will not work with 3" (8cm) CDs.

Last Position Memory: If you turn off the unit while a disc is playing, it will resume playback at that point when it is turned on again.

Front, Rear and Non-Fading Preamp Outputs: This unit includes gold-plated 4.0-volt front, 2.0-volt rear and 4.0-volt non-fading RCA preamp outputs. The non-fading outputs are typically used to feed a subwoofer amplifier. The non-fading output level is adjustable from -6 to +6.

Auxiliary Input: Stereo RCA preamp inputs are hardwired to the back of the unit on a 4" lead, allowing you to connect a portable audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system. The Aux input sensitivity is adjustable and can be set to "Sens High", "Sens Mid", or "Sens Low".

Cellular Mute Lead: This unit is equipped with a lead that will mute the audio output when it receives a muting signal from a cellular phone equipped with a muting output. When a cellular call is received, a signal sent from the phone to the muting lead causes the unit to mute the audio output, then, once the call is over, the audio level is automatically restored. To use this feature, you must have a cellular phone with a muting output that can be connected to the muting input wire (brown wire) of this unit.

Dimmer Feature: This unit is equipped with a wire that Clarion calls an illumination lead, however, it acts as a dimmer lead. When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on, the display will dim to a preset level. Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.

CeNET Control: This unit is equipped with a CeNET control connector and can control up to a total of two changers (CD and/or MD). Two changer control requires a Y-adapter (sold separately).

C-Bus Compatibility: Item 020RCB138 (sold separately) allows this CeNET unit to control a 6-disc C-Bus changer. The RCB138 adapter is for 6-disc changers only and cannot be used with C-Bus 12-disc changers, 18-disc changers, processors or TV tuners.

Changer Controls: In addition to basic disc navigation features, this unit has the following changer controls: direct disc access, disc intro scan, track intro scan, track repeat, disc repeat, disc random, and all disc random.

Top Function: Pressing the "Top" button while a CD is playing will start the disc playing from track 1 again.

CD Text/MD Display: When connected to a CD Text capable CD changer or an MD changer, this unit can display disc and track titles for discs encoded with disc and track title information. When a title is longer than 11 characters, you can make the title scroll by pressing the "Title" button.

CD Title Display: When used with a compatible CD changer, this feature allows you to assign names to discs in the changer. Each name can be up to 10 characters in length. The number of names you can store depends on the CD changer that is connected to the head unit. When a title is longer than 11 characters, you can make the title scroll by pressing the "Title" button.
