FUSION®, a worldwide leader in marine audio, announced today the release of its revolutionary high-performance marine audio systems, the FUSION 750 and 650 True-MarineTM Entertainment Series. Approaching audio engineering from the perspective of the boat enthusiast and incorporating the latest marine technologies and environmental protection, the stylish and feature-rich 750 and 650 stereos deliver an unrivalled fusion of form and function - never before seen in purpose-built marine audio.

The pinnacle of FUSION ingenuity and craftsmanship, the flagship 750 series is available in two configurations, the MS-UD750 with internal UNI-Dock, and the MS-AV750 marine DVD/CD player. An industry first, the MS-AV750 offers HDMI video connection support, allowing boaters to enjoy audio from any supported ARC television directly through the True-Marine entertainment system. Sporting a color widescreen LCD, the series' screen is optically bonded to improve durability, eliminate the possibility of condensation or fogging, and is able to resist extreme temperatures even in direct sunlight. The new FUSION 650 series is also available in a choice of internal UNI-Dock or DVD/CD, the MS-UD650 and MS-AV650, respectively. The 650 series features a grayscale, daylight-viewable, optically-bonded, widescreen LCD display.

Delivering superior playback of USB, Apple iOS and MTP Android/Windows media devices, the 750 and 650 feature internal Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming capabilities and Pandora radio support with "Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down" voting. The easy-to-use FUSION interface allows browsing or streaming of playlists while on the water with track and album data displayed on-screen. Multifunction display control is also available on NMEA 2000 networked devices using award-winning FUSION-Link. Additionally, FUSION-Link can be controlled wirelessly using the new FUSION app, available from iTunesTM or Google PlayTM, that controls the on-board entertainment devices over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® (Wi-Fi 750 series Only). The FUSION MS-UD750 and MS-UD650 protect, charge and play smartphones or media players from a watertight internal compartment. The UNI-Dock is able to securely house the largest range of smartphones, including the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5, providing absolute environmental protection. An additional external USB connection is provided to accommodate other media devices or simply to create a dedicated charging station for the vessel. The 750 series offers support for up to four independent audio zones, the 650 series provides three, each with volume control options, which are adjustable independently or globally. The scalable system allows for complete sound balance control for any size vessel, which makes the new series an all-in-one solution for entertaining on the high seas.

"We are incredibly proud of our new 650 and 750 series," said Chris Baird, managing director, FUSION Entertainment. "Our award-winning innovations over the years have brought a devoted following in the boating industry, and we are confident our latest introductions will give our customers the most exciting on-water entertainment experience to date."

Designed and engineered specifically for the marine environment, the glass filled composite chassis of the 650 and 750 series is rigid and incredibly lightweight, improving environmental protection and electrically isolates the internal components for complete reliability. The units incorporate a high-efficiency Class D amplifier segregated inside a uniquely shaped, side fin aluminum heat sink which gives greater thermal efficiency and increased power output to create louder and clearer audio while reducing current draw. With the same dimensions as the FUSION 700 and 600 series, this latest series is an easy ‘drop in' upgrade option. The FUSION 750 and 650 series boast a 360-degree IPx5 fully sealed chassis and are protected by an industry-leading 3-year limited consumer warranty.

The FUSION 750 and 650 series will be available for purchase in April from authorized dealers and retailers.
