There are two versions of this new system both true marine units certified to IPx5 and highly expandable, with optional wired remotes and amplifiers.
FUSION’s world’s-first iPod and iPhone inside continues in the MS-IP700 model. This means users can enjoy thousands of tunes, as the Apple unit is recharged and protected from the elements. Apple music menus are easily controlled by the single Commander knob, with Albums and tracks displayed on the screen.
For the widest range of music and video sources, the MS-AV700 and optional Dock replays AM/FM/VHF/iPod, iPhone, USB, CD, DVD, Video, plus MP3 players (Aux in). Both 700 Series models receive Marine VHF channels, replayed through your on-board stereo speakers.
Owners of boats equipped with a large screen will be amazed at the FUSION-Link software, which enables a compatible Multifunction Display (MFD) to become the Entertainment Control Centre.
A boat owner can use the MFD large screen to control one or more 700 Series audiovisual systems with four speaker Zones each. And most usefully the head unit can be installed elsewhere, if the helm has little space.
Boat Builders and owners will also appreciate how wiring is considerably reduced, as FUSION Head Units and Remotes connect to, plus communicate through the NMEA 2000 Bus or Ethernet already in many boats. It’s worth noting that most outboard engine gauges above 80hp have an NMEA 2000 Bus installed.
You can also wirelessly control the 700 System anywhere on your boat, using iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or PC and Android products. This is very handy feature as more boaties capture and store their music on computers and iPhone/iPods and want to be able to play their favourite tracks while afloat.
Other options abound in the Fusion 700 system, including remote controls, zone amplifiers and subwoofers. As we found at the boat show, the sound quality is absolute top quality and light years ahead of older sound systems you might have fitted to the boat a few years ago.
