If you’re looking for an affordable way to upgrade to DAB, Clarion might have the answer with its new CZ505E head unit. The name might not roll off your tongue, but it’s packed full of features and is a DAB direct replacement for your old single-DIN head unit. It receives both FM and DAB broadcasts and is able to switch between the two automatically, as well as packing a CD/MP3 players plus font-mounted USB and mini-jack ports for plug-and-play of iPhone, iPod and mobile music libraries. There’s even built-in Bluetooth, with phone book access and audio streaming capabilities while a 4x45W on-board amp will be a welcome upgrade over any basic factory stereo and a four-channel RCA connection allows for future expansion.
