circuit board. This protects the circuitry from the harsh, corrosive marine
environment. The receiver has a special connection on the rear panel for the
KCA-RC60MR wired marine remote control (sold separately).
Water Resistant Covers (optional): Even though the conformal coating makes the
receiver water-resistant, it is still recommended that it be used with a
universal marine cover such as the Metra (120999005B,

Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, and Natural.

the selected band's preset stations only with each button press), or Manual.

can choose to have the unit automatically put stations with good reception in
the memory banks automatically; this is a handy feature when traveling. The
tuner features 3 FM banks (1, 2, 3) and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for
each AM/FM bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
Clean Reception System Circuit
(CRSC): This circuit controls multi-path distortion by reducing stereo
separation. As stereo separation is reduced, multi-path has less effect on the
radio signal, improving reception in areas with tall buildings and mountains.
The CRSC circuit can be turned on or off.

Kenwood HD Radio tuner (113HR300, sold separately), you will be able to receive digital AM/FM

Supreme Setting: When MP3 or
WMA files encoded at a low bit rate (less than 96 kbps, 44.1k, 48kHz) are
played, the Supreme Setting function restores their high frequencies so the
sound quality is closer to files encoded at a high bit rate. The processing is
optimized for the compression format and the bit rate used. When the Supreme
Setting is Off, the unit plays the original sound stored in the audio file.
