Fusion adds Apple AirPlay functionality to Apollo series


FUSION announced today the addition of Apple AirPlay functionality to the new Apollo Series marine audio entertainment systems. Offering the industry’s first Apple iOS Wi-Fi streaming, the new feature is available with a free software update. 

Compatible with all current Apple iOS devices, AirPlay is easy to use allowing seamless device-to-device audio streaming. Unlike Bluetooth, which offers limited-range streaming and compression of audio files to lower-quality formats, AirPlay offers greater range for complete vessel coverage and transmits lossless audio at 44.1khZ.

“We went through an extensive application process to demonstrate to Apple why Fusion marine stereos are unique in construction and worthy of AirPlay designation,” said Chris Baird, managing director of Fusion Entertainment. “We recognise that a boat is not a car, and have built our systems from the ground-up specifically for the demanding needs of our discerning clientele. Having the official Apple AirPlay distinction further solidifies Fusion as the premier innovator in the marine audio space and sets the Apollo series even further apart amongst audio entertainment systems.”

The Fusion RA770 is the flagship of the new Apollo Series, which according to the manufacturers represents the world’s first purpose-built marine entertainment system with a one-piece glass touchscreen display, built-in Wi-Fi streaming, Digital Signal Processing Technology (DSP) and PartyBus capabilities. The Fusion Apollo Series also includes the SRX400, which, like the RA770, offers Apple AirPlay, Wi-Fi streaming, DSP and PartyBus functionality. 

Along with Apple AirPlay, Apollo users will benefit from the new Fusion-Link App update. It features a modernised user interface, over-the-air software updates, the ability to set up DSP profiles directly from the app and remote PartyBus control. Connecting to the app through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi allows the user to stream music in any zone, control volume, and access all music sources from anywhere on the boat. The Fusion-Link update is free to download through the Apple App Store or Google Play and gives users fingertip control of their entertainment.
