Clarion M606 Marine Digital Media Receiver With Built-In Bluetooth



M606 Marine Digital Media Receiver With Built-In Bluetooth

Engineered to Withstand Water and Salt

Water and salt can be a marine source unit's worse nightmare.

Our M606 source unit is IP55 tested and certified to provide you the best in water intrusion and salt water protection in its class, at the front panel where it’s most exposed to the elements.

Internally, rubber gaskets stop water in its tracks and integrated drainage channels keep water out, with an IPX3 tested and certified rear end for protection even if water manages to seep into the console.

All-New Aggressive Marine Design

The M606 features a new stylish yet purposeful design that's perfect for the marine environment. Distinctive diagonally cut control buttons, and blue-illuminated trim combine to add visual impact as well as help the user operate the unit. The large, white color LCD offers a crystal clear, easy-to-read display that shows you all the information you need up front and at-a-glance.

Control of USB-connected iPhone® and iPod® and iPad®

Get away from it all while staying connected to your music stored on your iPhone, iPod and iPad. Just use the USB cable that came with your iOS device and connect to the source unit's rear USB input to access control to information such as genre, album and song title search.

Bluetooth aptX® for Superior Sound Entertainment via Bluetooth® Audio Devices

The M606 incorporates the Bluetooth aptX codec that is also incorporated in many Android™ phones. Since it restores the sound elements that are lost during digital compression of audio files, you can have near CD quality sound. Now it’s possible to listen to high quality audio with wireless convenience even while out on the water.

Media Connectivity

Bluetooth aptX® for High Quality Streaming

Enjoy Bluetooth audio streaming with improved quality thanks to aptX codec support. This technology improves audio quality when listening to compressed audio over Bluetooth in a way that doesn’t degrade audio quality or cause latency, and reproduces the full audio bandwidth for quality sound while out on the water.
* Depending on mobile phone.

Due to its low compression, aptX is used in various digital devices including smartphones, enabling smooth playback of music from Android™ Phones as well. Count on it for high-quality worry-free listening.

Enjoy the familiar controls of your iOS device with items such as album, artist and song list displayed on-screen. Utilize the search function to quickly access desired music. A simple control mode allows you to operate the source unit using the controls on your device.
* For audio playback, please use the USB cable provided with your iPod and iPhone and iPad.

4 Zone Audio Volume Control

Since it is possible to control up to four independent audio zones on the same vessel, people can enjoy listening to the same source in the cabin, in the cockpit and on the deck with the freedom to adjust volume based on their preferences.

Enjoy Interactive Pandora® Internet Radio Anytime Anywhere

The M606's Pandora feature works seamlessly with the Pandora app on your smart device. Play songs and offer feedback with a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" option which is reflected in future music selections played for you. The app lets you bookmark artists/songs and even create your own station to customize your marine music experience.

Global Radio Tuner with Weather Band

The built-in multi-band tuner supports reception of radio stations just about anywhere in the world — which is nice when you’re sailing around the globe or just across the bay. With weather band, you'll always have the latest weather updates including automatic reception of emergency information to keep your voyage as smooth as possible.

3-Band EQ For Customizable Sound

In addition to providing 3 preset equalization patterns — BASS BOOST, IMPACT, and EXCITE — Clarion’s 3-Band EQ even lets you freely customize the level and range of the bass, midrange and treble portions of each pattern.

You can tune the sound to your liking, depending on the category of music, for a more personalized and fulfilling listening experience.

Low Pass Filter for Subwoofer

Switching on the Low Pass Filter (LPF) will send only the low frequency range through specified outputs to ensure superb performance when connected to a subwoofer.

6-Channel 4-Volt RCA Outputs Make It Easy to Expand and Upgrade

Equipped with 6-channel line outputs, you have independent controls over each channel for amplification. Front and rear speakers will retain fader and balance control while the subwoofer levels can be adjusted from the source unit for on the fly changes.
