Summary: I installed this unit myself in an 04' Trailblazer, it worked fine for a while, then it would only work when the key was on or in the ACC position, once the engine was started it would shut off. If I turned the engine on/of several times eventually it would stay on. Finally put the OEM unit back in. After about 4 months I decided to take it to Best Buy pay $50 and see if they had some sort of magic touch that I did not.
Summary: Good packaging and arrived on time. My brother is very happy with this gift from me and swears by the sound quality and other features for this player. Loves the driver's sound stage (or something similar) feature.
Summary: This HU is loaded with features and the user can adjust the display color to match the dash lights of their car. Sounds great and the Amber lighting matches my BMW dash lighting perfectly. And the basic black w/white lettering looks far better than most of the HU's nowadays that are "blinged" out and look gaudy that are made of cheap looking multi-color plastic. It also works with iPods/iPhones/USB sticks and most MP3 players.
Summary: This unit was awesome until one day when it just wouldn't turn on. Replaced it with a Blaupunkt digital media receiver and couldn't be happier. I gave it two stars, one for each month that it worked.
Summary: Great deck. Great sound. The amount of control you have over your listening environment is why I so enjoy this deck. You have control of just about everything. It takes some time to learn how to take full advantage of this system..
Summary: I purchased this unit back in January. I kept holding out, but when the 2009 models debuted and I feared this one would disappear, I snapped it up. I have yet to install it, but on features alone, you cannot beat this unit for value. I dare anyone - ANYONE! - to find a single-DIN CD deck with built in digital crossover, parametric EQ, and time alignment for this price - or probably any price. Most brands will require some sort of outboard processor.
Summary: This is an awesome CD player! It has some much great features stuffed into it. The crossovers AND equalizer are so precise for each speaker and the subs too. Another great feature I really liked is the 6 volt output! My sub hits O so much harder and cleaner! The display colors are cool and there is a lot to choose from (you can even make your own!). I thank Clarion for having an USB slot.
Summary: Overall I have been very happy with the Clarion DXZ785USB. I use this radio with my IPhone 3G through USB which works flawlessly. If you have a large collection it can take a while to scroll through to find a specific artist but I typically put the radio on shuffle and let it go. You can also go to Genre and play your podcast which is an added bonus. I did alot of research trying to find a head unit to work with the IPhone 3G and this one does it flawlessly.
