Fusion MS-RA670 is the versatile stereo system with three audio zones and four channels to create a PartyBusnetwork on board with several Apollo stereos
by Massimo Longoni
THE FUSION RA670 SYSTEM HAS ALL THE FEATURES OF THE APOLLO SERIES,but in a new and more compact form. Characterised by a brilliant full-colour LCD display, it has DSP Fusion Digital Signal Processing Technology, Fusion-Link integration and control, multi-zone control in up to 3 audio zones andthe PartyBus capabilities when connected to a Wi-Fi or Apollo network.
Fusion’s system approach ensures that every stage of the audio chain is optimized through calculations by its audio engineers to deliver a state-of-the-art listening experience. With just a few clicks via the free Fusion-Link app, boat owners can set up their preconfigured DSP profile to play high-quality audio customized to their ears and specific environment. Precisely calculated loudness curves optimised for the human ear ensure quality audio delivery at every volume level.
PartyBus is the audio distribution network that offers boat owners the possibility to regulate sound diffusion across the whole boat or quietly relax in a single cabin, regardless of the other guests’ preferences.The advantages of PartyBus start when users add several compatible stereos to their integrated entertainment system.
Each additional PartyBus enabled stereo gives the option to join the Party Mode and play the same perfectly synced audio source across thewhole vessel. Boaters can also choose the personal mode and listen to available audio sources from the stereo in their zone of choice without interrupting party mode in the other areas of the boat. RA670 must be connected to a Wi-Fi or Apollo network by means of an Ethernet cable to link up to the PartyBus network.
With Optical Audio as a source option, Apollo 670 enables you listen to your on-board TV with enhanced audio, thus improving the viewing experience. Apollo RA670 offers users the possibility of playing their favourite soundtrack through Bluetooth, Optical Audio (TV), SiriusXM functions (only USA), DAB + ready (available only in Europe and Australia), radio AM / FM, AUX and USB. When connected to a Wi-Fi or Apollo network, users can stream music from a mobile device through Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), providing top-quality audio streaming.
