Our take on the Blaupunkt Capri 220

by Jon Paulette
Blaupunkt

Blaupunkt for your boat

Blaupunkt's Capri 220 marine digital media receiver lets you enjoy top quality sound while you're living it up on the water. Designed for life on the high seas, this high-performance receiver makes a great command center for your marine audio system.

A rugged, versatile receiver

The Capri 220 packs a lot of features into a compact, durable design. You can kick back and enjoy AM/FM radio, or plug a music player or portable satellite radio into the two rear auxiliary inputs. Load up a thumb drive with your favorite cruising music and keep it plugged into the rear USB port. You can check out artist and song info with a quick glance at the brightly-lit display. Tthe weather-resistant, UV-stable face and rubber control buttons are designed to withstand the sun, salt, and spray that come along with a day on the water.

Features

Marine Certified: The Blaupunkt Capri 220 marine receiver has been engineered and tested for use in the harsh marine environment. The receiver meets Waterproof level IP66 standards, ASTM117 salt/fog standards, and ASTM D 4329 UV exposure standards.

LCD Screen w/ Front-Panel Controls: The Capri 220 marine receiver features a single-line LCD screen with a white background and black text. The marine head unit also features rubberized control buttons on the front-panel.

Audio Section: The Blaupunkt marine receiver is equipped with a 25 Watts (RMS) x 4ch amplifier. The marine head unit also offers independent Bass & Treble control, plus Balance & Fade adjustment.

USB Port: The marine receiver is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the chassis by a 7" pigtail. The USB port allows you to connect a USB thumbdrive. The unit supports audio playback & control of MP3/WMA (32-320 kbps) music files stored on a compatible USB thumbdrive. The unit offers Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat playback functions. The Intro Scan feature allows you to locate and play the first 10 seconds of each MP3/WMA track on a USB stick. This unit will also display song/artist information.

Note: Media devices, such as smartphones and MP3 players, should be connected to the Marine receiver via Aux input or optional Bluetooth.

AM/FM Tuner: The Capri 220 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can select either US or European tuning. The marine unit provides 3 FM banks and 2 AM banks. Each AM/FM bank can hold up to 4 station presets, proving you with 12 FM station presets and 8 AM station presets. Stations can be stored manually or automatically.

Dual Aux Inputs: This unit features two rear-mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary inputs on a 7" pigtail so you can connect up to two external audio sources. An RCA-to-Minijack cable (sold separately) will be required for the connection of a portable audio player with a headphone jack output.

Optional Bluetooth: The marine head unit supports wireless music playback of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone via Blaupunkt's add-on Bluetooth receiver (023BTUP, sold separately). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled device to the receiver. Music navigation and song/artist information will still be done through your Bluetooth device.

Note: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

Mounting Options:  The Blaupunkt Capri 220 marine receiver requires a rectangular cutout in the bulkhead for inserting the chassis. The integrated protective gasket, supplied mounting bracket, and integrated hardware secure the unit in place against the mounting surface. Receiver dimensions:

  • Chassis: 5.255" (w) x 3.305" (h) x 2.3125" (d)
  • Face-Plate: 6.085" (w) x 4.105" (h) x 0.605" (d)
