Clarion has announced their premium aftermarket receiver, the NX807, at this year’s CES 2017 event.
Their first volley onto Apple’s CarPlay platform brings a 7″ WVGA touchscreen display, with support for Pandora and Bluetooth Audio streaming, smartphone mirroring via HDMI, 15 band graphic equaliser, 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution playback of FLAC audio files, and a TOSLINK digital audio output.
The NX807 will come with the usual array of connections that you come to expect from a premium model, including HDMI input, two USB inputs, RCA input, and connections for a rear-view camera. The system will also be compatible with OEM steering wheel remote controls.
