With two independent audio zones available, each with advanced localized menu controls, including zone naming, you can easily customise and control your listening experience in each zone. Note: Line Out/Sub Out requires additional amplification.

The MS-RA70N is a FUSION-Link Wired NMEA 2000 certified product and is compatible with a range of the world’s leading Multi-Function Displays for onscreen audio control. When pairing the MS-RA70N with a supported Chartplotter or Fish finder you bring your music to the big screen, allowing you to keep an eye on the charts or the fish while skipping tracks or adjusting the volume at the same time. In addition to MFD control, the MS-RA70N will connect to any FUSION NRX series remote control attached to the same powered NMEA 2000 network for localized control of the audio zones. (Note: the NRX remote must be incorporated onto a powered network, if you are planning on using the MS-RA70N and a NRX series remote on a standalone network additional cabling is required to power the network).

The MS-RA70N is designed and engineered specifically for the marine environment, with an IPx7 front panel (when mounted correctly) to withstand the environment like none other, perfectly paired with an optically bonded LCD for crystal clear display on the high seas.

Listen to USB MP3 audio, connect your supported smartphone or even relax to your local AM/FM station; the MS-RA70N delivers marine grade entertainment to those who would normally have to resort to installing rust prone car audio stereos – Rest easy, let FUSION entertain you on the water.

*Play, pause and skip tracks.

The MS-RA70N is protected by a 12 month worldwide consumer warranty.
