Question about Clarion DRX9375R

Clarion DRX9375r AM/Fm/CD Headunit optical output question.

Hello everyone. I'm new to FixYa and I appreciate all the information you people provide. I hope that I can be of help to some of you. I have a question about my Clarion DRX9375R head unit. The unit works great and was purchased on ebay used, so it was a great value. For those familar with this unit, you know it can control several Clarion peripherals if they are installed. I have the head unit connected to a DPH9300 processor, a CDC1805 18 disc changer, a TTX7107 tv tuner and a Clarion VS755 DVD/mp3 unit connected to one of the VTR inputs on the tv tuner unit. Thats the basic system unit. I won't bore you with the amps and speakers unless your interested to know. Anyway, the headunit has an optical digital out that I've never used. I connected the non-fadable pair of rca line outs, (the purple pair), from the headunit to the DSP9300 and of course all the 13 pin C-BUS cables to the other peripherals and everything has worked fine. My question is, would there be a noticeable improvement in the quality of the cd audio from the headunit if I cannect an optical digital cable between the headunit and the DPH9300 processor? I already have the cable, but I never connected it because its not shown to be connected between the headunit and the processor in any of the system configuration examples in the instructions. Sorry for the long description, but I just wanted to explain what's connected and what I understand so far. Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks, tuneman

I have the same HU and the same processor as you. First I only used the chinch cables to the processor, and from the changer.

The improvements you make; your headunit DAC and your chancher DAC wil not be used anymore. The differens; normal with a cd you convert a digitalsignal into analoge, in the HU or changer, and then you make it digital again in the processor, en put the signal analoge into your amp.

The advantage is; the processor uses the famous Burr Brown DACs and that is know by its good sound processing.

cheers mate

Clarion Marine Problem w Sirius CeNet Unit

When a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver is added to a system, the source unit’s main wiring harness must be disconnected before the changer and/or satellite receiver’s CeNET cable is connected to the source unit. Otherwise, the source unit will not “recognize” that a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver has been added.

Can i connect ipod adaptor to rca output jacks?

With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.

We need manuals for Clarion DRX9375R Pro Audio cd car stereo

Hello badmmkitty,

It appears that the DRX9375R is no longer supported directly by Clarion Audio, so locating a "free" manual probably means finding one that someone no longer needs.

If you do not want to pay the $14.99 for a PDF copy, available here: http://www.user-manuals.com/service-manual-CLARION-DRX9375RRW.html, I'd recommend that you post your need for the manual on one or more of the online car audio forums.

Hope this helps.

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.
