The GR9000 series Marine Stereo System has been designed with both the music buff and boat owner in mind. The unit is available in two colours (black or white) and in two discrete configurations, according to vessel size. For the smaller vessel where exposure to the elements is greater the fully enclosed GR9040 is ideal. For larger cruisers or yachts where bulkhead installation is the preferred option, the GR9020 is the best solution. Features include AM/FM stereo, CD/MP3 playback through a 180 watts amp. Handy interfaces and an industry first are inclusions of SD and USB inputs and iPod compatibility. To protect it from the elements all circuitry is specially coated, as is exposed metalwork and the GR9000?s has a water resistant housing. Complementing the stereo is a new range of waterproof speaker systems, antennae and accessories to suit every type of vessel and installation requirement.
RRP: $349.00 (GR9040); $299.00 (GR9020)
