Sony announced the CDX-M20 CD Receiver for boat owners. It offers easy connectivity to SiriusXM satellite radio, as well as MP3 players and MP3/WMA song file playback from a recorded CD while out on the water.
The marine head unit features SiriusXM compatibility, using the new SXV100 SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit (sold separately, XM subscription required). The compact SiriusXM vehicle tuner has a simple connection, providing integration of SiriusXM in an inexpensive and easy-to-install package.
The CDX-M20 also includes a built-in equalizer and powerful 52-watt x 4 high power amplifier, providing superior sound quality. The easy-to-read single line LCD display shows clock, station ID and track data while the front auxiliary input allows users to connect almost any portable audio device to the sound system. The UV resistant front panel coating protects the faceplate, helping to prevent discoloration from the sun. The unit's conformal circuit board coating protects it from damage resulting from contamination, salt spray, moisture, fungus and dust associated with harsh or extreme environments it is expected to be used in. Blue key illumination helps users locate buttons quickly during evening playback.
Price and Availability
The CDX-M20 Marine CD Receiver will be available in January 2012 for $140.
