Video: Demo of the Clarion CX501 CD receiver

I've written about car audio for Crutchfield since 2003, after four years as Crutchfield Sales Advisor, and 10 years as a music teacher. I'm an avid music listener, with a real love of classical and film music. I love having a great system in my car, and I'll still match the system in my 98 Ford Ranger (may it rest in piece) up against anything else I've heard for great SQ. I attended West Virginia University, where I received a Master's Degree in Music Performance and a Bachelor's Degree in History. Let's Go Mountaineers!

Why settle for a smaller receiver when you've got room for more? Clarion's CX501 CD receiver strikes a handsome pose in your double-DIN dash opening, and you can tailor its look to your vehicle's interior by choosing from 728 possible illumination colors. Throw in iPod® and iPhone® control, built-in Bluetooth® for hands-free calls, plus a 2-line display, and you're ready for the open road. Check it out in this demo video.
