Product Overview

Don't leave shore without Sony's DSX-M55BT Bluetooth Marine Stereo to handle all your music and phone calls—hands-free!

There's far too much to do on a boat to waste time fumbling around for a cable, and no one wants to find themselves leashed to the stereo just because they're the DJ. Sony's DSX-M55BT Bluetooth Marine Stereo lets you focus on other things with its many bluetooth functions, SiriusXM compatibility, AM/FM radio presets, hands-free calling with the built-in mic and App Remote 3.0 feature, which unites your marine stereo’s music and smartphone apps into a single source list you control from your phone. It gives Android users voice control with notification read-out for Twitter, and lets you read and reply to text or e-mail messages. Plus, you can control the unit’s volume and bass levels and choose from five preset EQ modes for complete personalization of your listening experience.

Key Features

  • Boost Your Sound Quality: This device comes with advanced sound control features like its EQ5 equalizer, Mega Bass functionality and selectable LPF crossover. Fine tune your audio experience.
  • Pandora Radio: Now you can enjoy your Pandora radio stations on your boat. Check out the West Marine Waterlife Pandora station.
  • Bluetooth 3.0: In addition to all its other excellent features, this model is a Bluetooth master. It boasts One-Touch listening with NFC (Near Field Communications) technology. What kind of device do you have? Doesn't matter; this device can wirelessly connect to pretty much anything. What's more: it'll simultaneously connect with up to two bluetooth devices at once for control over multiple features.
  • Better Bluetooth Calling: This technology provides completely hands-free calling, with call history, browsing options, mic adjustment and speed dial. With a built-in microphone and Phonebook access, you won't have to drop the fun to pick up a call.
  • There's an App for That: In addition to the included wired remote and RM-X11M compatibility (remote sold separately), Sony's app for smartphones gives you wireless control of your tunes. No matter where you are on your boat, these features give you complete domination of your audio experience.
  • Connect Directly: Don't worry; all this newfangled technology won't impede cable users. The DSX-M55BT sports front USB ports for your iPod/iPhone or Android and an AUX input for direct connection to smartphones and mp3 devices. These entry points also come with covers to protect against wind, water, and debris when not in use.
  • Never Skip a Beat: Memory backup lets you pick up right where you left off, even when the power's gone out.
