Announced during the IBEX Innovation awards, the MS-RA205 Marine Stereo with Universal Media Device Dock (UNI-Dock) and BT200 Bluetooth Streaming has received the 2013 International Boatbuilder’s Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) Innovation Award Honorable Mention in the OEM Electronics category. Organized by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and judged by members of Boating Writers International (BWI), the award recognizes innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured, benefit to the marine industry and consumers, practicality, and cost-effectiveness. The ultra-compact FUSION MS-RA205 paired with the UNI-Dock and Bluetooth streaming module offers FUSION's signature sound quality and unprecedented media integration that is perfect for vessels with limited dash space.

“We are pleased our system has been validated as an exceptional product for boat builders,” said Todd Crocker, Fusion Electronics U.S.A. “Our best-in-class onboard entertainment solutions deliver the very best in true-marine audio, smart phones and media device support, and Bluetooth capability, as well as address the complete range of boat builders’ audio entertainment needs.”

“Marine technology is developing and expanding at a rapid rate, and the range of products entered this year reflect an exciting, changing landscape,” said Alan Wendt, chairman of the BWI judging panel. “The winners represent not only technological mastery, but truly the creativity that is propelling this industry forward.”

FUSION continues to develop world-leading technologies for the marine industry, striving to always remain an innovator while others simply follow. The MS-RA205 features FUSION-Link connectivity for NMEA 2000, and when paired with a compatible Garmin MFD the control of the audio interface is granted to the display.
