Kenwood Sees Strong Market Opportunity In High Quality Marine-Specific Receivers

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 is $120.00.
