FUSION announced today the latest addition to its line of marine grade stereos, the FUSION MS-BB300 Black Box Entertainment System. The MS-BB300 with FUSION-Link via NMEA 2000 control, Bluetooth audio streaming and Multi-Zone technology offers true FUSION-Link ‘plug and play’ compatibility with Multi-Function Displays (MFD) for intuitive, easy-to-control True-Marine audio playback.

An entertainment system designed for space-limited installations, the FUSION Black Box MS-BB300 is packed with functionality. Featuring full support for Apple iOS and MTP Android/Windows Media Playback, as well as USB/AUX connection options, the MS-BB300 offers intuitive control of popular media devices and delivers an interface for browsing a music library while on the water. The MS-BB300 also features A2DP/AVRCP Bluetooth streaming, allowing boaters to share music from any compatible device, with track and album data displayed on screen. A MS-NRX200i Wired Remote Control is included with the system for intuitive system navigation, and features a large LCD display and easy scroll rotary encoder for a familiar FUSION True-Marine experience. Full navigation and control is available from the MS-NRX200i, as well as any paired device or connected FUSION-Link MFD.

With an aluminum heat sink integrated into the chassis side panel to allow greater dispersion of heat for sustained high performance, the FUSION MS-BB300 provides three independent audio zones, each with their own volume control options. Boaters can adjust each zone independently or globally from any connected FUSION-Link MFD or MS-NRX200i wired remote. Advanced FUSION-Link audio control is also available when utilizing an existing NMEA 2000 network to connect to a MFD.

The FUSION MS-BB300 features an AM/FM/Sirius-XM Ready tuner, and Bluetooth, USB and a 3.5mm / USB panel mount connectors for flush installation when the MS-BB300 is placed out of sight. It is compatible with the Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 3G; and HTC One, LG Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Experia Z phones. Compatible music players include the Apple iPod nano 7th gen, iPod nano 6th gen, iPod nano 5th gen, iPod nano 4th gen, iPod touch 5th gen, iPod touch 4th gen, iPod touch 3rd gen, iPod touch 2nd gen and the iPod Classic. The FUSION MS-BB300 includes all mounting hardware and connection cables for effortless installation. The FUSION MS-BB300 is designed for dry area installation and protected by a three-year limited consumer warranty.

The FUSION MS-BB300 will be available this December for purchase from authorized dealers and retailers throughout the United States and Canada, and priced at $479.
