Fusion Panel-stereo

Motorboat & Yachting - - New Gear -

Fusion re­cently launched a com­plex hi-fi sys­tem called the Apollo Se­ries, but if your needs are more mod­est there is now a cheaper al­ter­na­tive. Panel-stereo is a de­vice slim enough (43mm) to flush mount with lit­tle in­tru­sion, or sim­ply sur­face mount it us­ing a spacer kit. All that it re­quires is power and an aerial. Two in-built 3in speak­ers give stereo sound and a bass ra­di­a­tor helps with the deeper notes. You can source your mu­sic from AM/FM ra­dio, through an aux-in au­dio con­nec­tor, from a USB stick, or via Blue­tooth and a de­vice such as a smart­phone. DSP (Dig­i­tal Sig­nal Pro­cess­ing) main­tains au­dio qual­ity to the Class D 2x43w amp. But­tons on the front con­trol panel are sim­ple func­tions such as vol­ume, pause, play and track search and it uses ‘au­di­ble feed­back’ to let you know what’s go­ing on. Al­ter­na­tively, you can con­trol it via an app from your Ap­ple or An­droid de­vice, or even a com­pat­i­ble Garmin smart watch. IP65 wa­ter re­sis­tance means that it should shrug off rain and spray but not, alas, to­tal immersion. So don’t ex­pect the band to play on Ti­tanic-style if you are un­for­tu­nate enough to sink.
