Fusion’s MS-IP600G marine stereo is a complete media center designed specifically for use on a boat. With an AM/FM receiver, SiriusXM-ready capability and an internal, waterproof compartment to dock your iPod directly into your new stereo, the MS-IP600G gives you access to all the audio content options you could want while aboard.
New for 2014, the MS-IP600G now includes the MS-BT100 Marine Bluetooth Module, allowing for instant streaming from a compatible device. The MS-BT100 module streams audio from any A2DP Bluetooth capable Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry or other device directly to the connected Fusion marine stereo.
Made for your boat—not your Bimmer!
Unlike most marine stereos on the market, Fusion’s lineup (including the IP600G) was designed specifically for marine use. Ordinarily, stereos on the marine market have undergone a minor facelift—some white, UV-resistant paint, some circuit coating to take a splash or two...but ultimately, they’re car stereos in disguise. But not with a Fusion. The IP600G’s rugged, diecast construction holds up to the saltwater exposure you’re likely to experience on your boat. And its superior marine construction is IPX5 water-resistant, too, so you’re sure to have a reliable onboard audio option that will be with you for years to come.
Ultimate playlist versatility
Digital music makes perfect sense on a moving boat. You’ll have more playlist options without worrying about skipping tracks, or physical scratches. With the IP600G, the same way you’ve probably forgotten about your old 8-Tracks, you can skip dragging your CDs along with you, too. Fusion’s innovative iPod docking system houses your iPod safely inside a waterproof drawer—and charges it the whole time you’re listening—no cables required.
Easy, intuitive controls—just like your iPod
You’ll have complete control and access to all iPod functions from the IP600G’s easy to use 2.7" dot matrix display. Its intuitive, onscreen interface is virtually identical to the iPod interface itself. Search and sort by song, artist and album name, or use the rapid alpha search.
Tailor the sound to multiple locations onboard
Crashing waves, monster wakes and roaring engines—listening to music on your boat isn’t the same as in your car or SUV. The IP600G’s independent three-zone audio feature let’s you control the volume separately in up to three different locations on your boat. Set the volume level and manage their settings right from the head unit! So you can listen louder on deck while not blasting your ears below.
Pump out more power than most other marine stereos
With a beefy output of 4 x 70W (280W max), the IP600G’s unique Class D amplifier delivers 40% more audio power than competitive units while consuming 40% less electricity.
