Built tough, for a life on the water

Has your boat's radio seen better days? Sony's MEX-M72BT marine CD receiver offers lots of useful features, plus water-resistant toughness that makes it a shipshape addition to your watercraft. Handy inputs and built-in Bluetooth® provide plenty of media options, while Sony's built-in Dynamic Reality Amp produces plenty of power to drive your speakers. A conformal-coated circuit board and a UV-resistant front panel ensure that this IPx5-rated receiver will stand up to life on the water.

Bluetooth convenience

This marine-rated receiver features built-in Bluetooth for easy hands-free calling and music streaming. Near Field Communication (NFC) technology means one-touch listening with compatible devices — simply touch the NFC logo with your phone, and you're paired up.

Voice command and control

Pair your iPhone® or Android™ with this Sony and you can take advantage of the voice command and control features provided by Siri Eyes Free (iPhone) or Voice Access (Android). Open apps, place calls, compose and check texts — all while keeping your hands free and your eyes on the task at hand.

SiriusXM satellite radio

Add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (not included, subscription required) to your receiver and enjoy the unparalleled variety of music, news, sports, and talk offered by satellite radio. Best of all, your favorite channels will stay with you, even when you're miles offshore. It's a great option for boaters.

Installation notes: This marine radio is water-resistant, but we recommend mounting it in a water-resistant enclosure or using a cover for best performance.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. 

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.
