are not the news any more. Such technology is in use all around us. The latest yachts all come with cutting edge technology already installed. Such systems can be additionally built into older yachts as well.
The same was once case with the stereo
and hi-fi systems
. Yachts I used to sail with were regularly equipped with car stereo systems which included a radio
and a CD player
. Afterwards, the first question my guests would ask me about the yacht was whether they can reproduce music from MP3 discs
and, later on, from memory sticks
. When they realized that yacht owners and charter companies are not willing to invest into the latest stereo systems while the existing ones still worked properly, yacht guests started to reproduce their own music from smartphones
and some kind of wireless remote amplifiers and speaker systems not bigger than a decent sandwich.
The Korean manufacturer Pretech Marine
, famous for their cable steering control systems, has recently presented Aucean
. It is a stereo system equipped with an integrated amplifier
and speaker system
, along with Bluetooth 4.0
connection, which makes it perfect for the use on board. The music is played from a smartphone
and reproduced through the built-in speaker system
. Aucean is IPX5 certified
, which means it is resistant to various weather conditions. It works with 12 V electricity and releases 40 W of power. The integrated LED illumination
makes Aucean especially attractive in the evening and during the night, and remote control enables you to play the music you want from a distance. This all leads to the conclusion that the best DJ on board will be the one with the best music on their smartphone...
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
