Marine Stereo Shopping Guide Can Help You Get The Stereo Of Your Dreams

Stereos are great, and we like to be able to use them everywhere. However, if you try and use a stereo system somewhere where there is going to be water, then you have a major problem.

Now you just need to know how to go about buying one of these, and that is where the Marine stereo shopping guide comes into play. It can make shopping for one of these super easy.

Kenwood KTS-MP400MR Waterproof Marine CD player

Kenwood's KTS-MP400MR marine CD player delivers outstanding audio performance right in your boat. It's tough enough to withstand the stress of a harsh marine environment, and it offers up great sound quality and plenty of entertainment options.

Kenwood protects the internal circuitry with a special coating that prevents the corrosion that can destroy an ordinary in-dash stereo. Meanwhile, the waterproof front panel and fold-down CD door prevent unnecessary soakings. The face also sports a large, backlit display that you'll have no problem reading, even in bright sunlight.

When you store your boat in drydock in the offseason, don't worry about having to readjust your audio settings or resaving your radio presets. The Kenwood KTS-MP400MR features Kenwood's convenient full memory backup, which will save all your settings even when there's no power going to the stereo. It gives you one less thing you have to do when boating season rolls around.

Kenwood KTS-MP400MR key features:
  • Marine CD receiver with built-in MOSFET amplifier

If HD Radio has hit your area, add a compatible tuner and enjoy the improved sound quality of AM and FM. Your iPod™ can come sailing with you, too, when you connect it with Kenwood's optional iPod control interface - you can even sort through your playlists with the Kenwood KTS-MP400MR's controls.

The built-in amplifier makes sure your music reaches your ears, instead of getting drowned out. You can add to the power mix by connecting external amplifiers. Add a powered subwoofer, and your music will have added impact. And you'll enjoy precise control over the tone of your music.
