Simrad® Yachting, a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, auto steering, communications and fishfinding systems, has launched a revolutionary marine audio hub and docking station, the SonicHub™. SonicHub™ joins the comprehensive Simrad product family to further enhance Simrad vessel integration.

SonicHub™ is the world’s first marine audio server combined with high definition multifunction displays, removing the need for a separate stereo onboard. The impressive new SonicHub™ integrates seamlessly with Simrad’s award-winning Simrad NSE multifunction display units to provide the ultimate in boating entertainment with stunning high definition colour screens.

SonicHub’s docking station is suitable for use with the very latest iPod, iPhone, iTouch or other USB MP3 players, making it the perfect choice for those who want to enjoy their entire music collection while at sea. The secure and waterproof docking station ensures any external device, such as an iPod is discreetly positioned and safe from the elements.

With its high power amplifier and choice of 8” or 12” sunlight viewable displays, the Simrad SonicHub™ solution provides high quality sound and superb visual control. For those who need to keep up to date with the latest news and weather reports, Sonic Hub™ also comes with a built in AM/FM tuner.

The Simrad SonicHub™ incorporates multi-zone technology, providing independent sound control in up to three areas onboard. Multi-zone technology is ideal for larger vessels that require autonomous control via multiple access points located throughout the boat.

SonicHub™ is simple to install on an NMEA 2000 network. Controlled through the Simrad NSE display, there is no need to cut extra holes in the Navigation Station as SonicHub™ does not require a dedicated head unit. Its intuitive and stylish graphical user interface audio functions can be operated at the touch of a button and menu systems and icons are easy to understand and navigate.

Impressive new upgrades to the NSE unit combine best in class core charting, echo sounder and radar technology. Furthermore, the NSE is the only multifunctional display unit on the market with the ability to integrate autopilot control, digital switching and the impressive new structurescan radar.
