Video: Demo of the Clarion FZ502 Digital Media 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!

Clarion made the FZ502 digital media receiver for everyone who has moved beyond CDs. Its 7-way rotary control works a lot like an iPod's control wheel. You can push, tilt, and turn the wheel to navigate your music library, as you see song info on the two-line display. When you leave the car with your music player, you can slide the built-in protective cover back over the USB slot to keep dust out. See it in action in this demo video.
