One rugged radio

Sony’s MEX-M70BT marine CD receiver offers all the features you want in a new receiver, plus the water-resistant toughness you need in a piece of marine electronics. Built-in Bluetooth® and a handy front USB input give you plenty of ways to play your tunes, while the specialized circuit board coating and UV-resistant front panel ensure that this receiver will stand up to life on the water.

Hands-free convenience

This marine-rated receiver features built-in Bluetooth 4.0 with Simple Secure Pairing, so you can take calls and listen to music (including your favorite Pandora channels) with minimal effort and maximum quality. NFC (Near Field Communication) technology means one-touch listening with compatible devices —simply align the devices, touch the NFC logo, and pair things up. It’s a very handy feature to have on a boat.

Sony’s App Remote gives you voice control for select smartphones, plus you can take advantage of one-touch voice activation for your iPhone® using Bluetooth. You can also plug your iPod®, iPhone, Android™ smartphone, or other compatible device into the two USB ports and play music while charging the device. Sony’s Quick-BrowZer® feature lets you find your music by artist, album, genre, song or playlist. The detachable front display shows song title and artist info, then gives you caller ID info when you get a call.

Get the sound you want

The MEX-M70BT features a built-in Dynamic Reality Amp that’s designed to produce plenty of power without noise or distortion. You can also customize the sound to suit your musical tastes using the built-in 10-band equalizer, selectable low- and high-pass crossovers, and other soundshaping tools. If you’re planning on expanding your system in the future, you can use the full set of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs to send a strong, clean signal to your marine amps.

You’ll also enjoy plenty of control options with the MEX-M70BT. The intuitive front panel is easy to learn, but when you’re away from the receiver, you can use your smartphone or the included wireless remote. With Passenger Control for iPhone® and iPod® devices, your guests can play DJ while you’re at the helm. This receiver also works with the SiriusXM tuner (not included), allowing you to enjoy satellite radio programming even when you’re miles and miles offshore.
