Sees Strong Market Opportunity In High Quality
Kenwood USA announced its successful
entry into the marine audio market with its KTS-300MR
and KST-MP400MR CD receivers. The two models are
specially engineered for the harsh marine environment
and designed with high performance audio features
typically not found in marine components.
The CD receivers offer the most
popular features found in Kenwood's line of mobile
receivers, including Dual Zone capability, the
ability to add Satellite Radio, iPod or HD Radio,
and the high-grade Kenwood audio circuitry that
is very rare within the marine electronics market.
Both models can be used with the optional KCA-RC100MR
hard-wired remote control, which features an easy-to-read
14-segment LCD display with scrolling text, direct
source selection, AM/FM selection, disc and track
selection and power on/off. An optional 'Y' adapter
allows connection of a second remote control module
for operation at the swim deck or bow.
The KTS-MP400MR combines all
the features of the KTS-300MR with the addition
of MP3 and WMA playback, providing up to 10 hours
of music on a disc. It also includes ID3 tag and
file information display and front, rear and subwoofer
pre-amp outputs for future system expansion.
All Kenwood marine audio products
are marine-grade conformal coated for environmental
protection and the front access key panels and
flip-down CD door covers are waterproof.
The KTS-300MR has a suggested
retail price of $250.00, the KTS-MP400MR is available
for $300.00, and the KCA-RC100MR remote control
for more information.
