Expand your Apollo audio system
If you want to build a cutting-edge multi-zone audio system on your boat, Fusion's Apollo Series has everything you need. Start with a Fusion MS-RA770 or MS-RA670 touchscreen marine receiver, then add one or more of these MS-SRX400 zone receivers in other zones on your boat. You can sync up all the music on the boat with Fusion's PartyBus™ feature, or use each MS-SRX400 as an individual entertainment source. You can use its built-in amp to power stereo speakers in your zone, or use the preamp outputs to add amps to power the speakers and a sub.
It's all about the app
Fusion-Link, the industry standard protocol for marine audio integration and control, lets you control your entertainment directly from marine multi-function displays, compatible Apple or Android devices, and Garmin watches. You can choose from multiple control options and adjust your audio from wherever you are on your boat. One of the best things about Fusion-Link is that you can access the receiver's digital signal processing settings. Fusion's DSP uses precisely calculated loudness curves to let you enjoy a full sound at every volume level without distortion. And your Apollo Series receiver will always be up to date, thanks to over-the-air software updates.
NEW! Fusion Apollo receivers and zone receivers can now stream high-quality audio from compatible Apple devices using Apple Airplay. The feature is standard on newer models, but if you already have a Fusion Apollo Series reveiver, you can add it via a software update from Fusion
Dig your tunes with DSP
One of the best things about Fusion-Link is that it lets you control the receiver's digital signal processing settings.

With this Apollo Series receiver, everything will sound awesome anywhere you are.

The MS-SRX400 supports UPnP for wireless streaming of MP3, AAC, WAV, and FLAC audio files from a UPnP compatible source device (such as your Windows PC or media server). The receiver will provide control and song/artist display of your UPnP music content.
- Apple AirPlay 2 (firmware update available): Through a firmware update you can now stream high quality audio seamlessly via Apple AirPlay 2 over WiFi from your compatible Apple iOS (4.3.3+) device to the MS-SRX400. You'll be able to stream your Apple Music or your favorite music apps from your Apple iOS device to the MS-SRX400 with song/artist/album info display (including album art).

PartyBus: PartyBus is Fusion's wired (Ethernet) or wireless (WiFi) network audio distribution system of the future. The power of PartyBus kicks in when you add more PartyBus-enabled stereos (via a wired or wireless network connection) to your marine entertainment system. Each additional PartyBus-enabled stereo gives you the option to join Party Mode and play the same perfectly synced audio source through the vessel. Or, you can select Personal Mode and listen to available audio sources from your stereo in the area of your choice without disrupting Party Mode in the other areas of the vessel.
- You can connect up to eight Fusion PartyBus devices (including the MS-RA670, MS-RA770 and MS-SRX400) on one network.
- At least one Apollo MS-RA670 or MS-RA770 stereo is required in the PartyBus network.
- The MS-SRX400 can stream from a Fusion PartyBus stereo (such as the MS-RA670 or MS-RA770), but cannot stream sources to other Fusion PartyBus devices on the network.
- Fusion PartyBus devices cannot control the speaker volume of another stereo. You can only adjust the volume of speakers or speaker zones connect directly to the PartyBus stereo.
Note: AirPlay 2 is not supported over PartyBus.
2Ch Class-D Amplifier with 3Ch Pre-Outs: The Fusion MS-SRX400 is equipped with a Class-D amplifier rated at 35 watts (RMS)/70 watts (Peak) x 4 channel into 4 or 2 ohm.
