Get onboard with Clarion

With Spring traditionally signalling the start of the boating season, Clarion - a global leader of mobile electronics – can help Britain’s boat owners have more fun afloat, with a range of audio and multimedia solutions to suit any craft.

As part of the custom-made marine range, Clarion’s CMV1 is the industry’s first watertight multimedia head-unit and was selected by the Consumer Electronics Association in the U.S, as an Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Award honouree, in the In-Vehicle Audio product category for product and design excellence.

The unique design features a 3.5-inch TFT full colour display and offers DVD-video and DivX as well as iPod Video* playback capabilities, as well as being Bluetooth ready**, to offer a fully integrated AV experience.

The CMV1 includes Dolby Digital playback, whilst compressed audio sound enhancements are made via BBE® MP (Minimized Polynomial Non-Linear Saturation), generating a vacuum tube sound to restore harmonics lost during digital compression.

Offering one-year back-up memory, so radio presets are not lost even if the boat is in seasonal storage, and with rear panel AV inputs and outputs - perfect for driving additional display screens – Clarion delivers a comprehensive onboard entertainment experience previously reserved for the automotive market.

Clarion’s recently redesigned marine audio model - CMD6 - has a 1-DIN chassis with an oversized face panel. It features a sealed waterproof flip-down front face with large rubberized rotary volume knobs and buttons. The CMD6 also includes a large two-line, ten character display, features USB input for direct iPod control, instant radio station recall, and rear panel RCA inputs and outputs. The CMD6 – like the CMV1 - allows for operation with either a wired or wireless remote control and offers one-year back-up memory.

Clarion’s water-resistant speaker line-up includes the CMQ2510W 10-inch 300W subwoofer, as well 7-inch and 6.5-inch coaxial speakers. Two wired remote controls are purpose-designed to compliment Clarion’s latest marine units. The MW2 remote has sleek black styling with stainless steel surround, completely waterproof controls and an easy-to-use button configuration. The MW1 remote offers the same good looks, and includes a large 2-line display with a four-way control button to easily scroll through music files and or seek your favourite radio stations.

For cabin craft that can accommodate a head unit inside, with controls located outside, Clarion also offers a third waterproof wired remote control (CMRC2-BSS), which is compatible with Clarion’s standard range of audio and multimedia solutions, opening up a wealth of onboard entertainment opportunities.

The Clarion CMV1 and CMD6 are priced at RRP £629.00 and £279.00 respectively, and are available from Clarion appointed marine specialists across the UK. For more details call Clarion (GB) Ltd., on 01793 870400, or visit
