Stylish Clarion Marine CMM-30 source unit delivers a compelling blend of performance, features and value
MIRAMAR, Florida – June 14, 2022 – The new CMM-30 multimedia source unit from Clarion Marine, a veteran of the marine electronics industry, has earned its place in Boating Industry magazine’s 2022 Top Products issue. Products in the Boating Industry Top Products program have been chosen based on their impact, innovation, and how they advance the industry.
“We spend countless hours reviewing the hundreds of products submitted and weeding out what we feel are the most groundbreaking boating products of the year,” said Boating Industry editor in chief Adam Quandt. “The CMM-30 multimedia source unit from Clarion Marine made the cut by impressing us for many reasons, including its robust features, installation flexibility, multi-zone control, and vast MFD support.”
The CMM-30 is a full-featured, NMEA 2000 network-connected, all-in-one, multi-zone source unit that boasts an ultra-modern, weatherproof chassis (IP66) and an ultra-bright color LCD display. Such unique features give boat builders and boat owners all the style, options, and performance they demand at an affordable price of $479.99.
Ready for all modern audio sources, the CMM-30 is SiriusXM® ready and features a built-in AM/FM radio, Weather Band, and RBDS Global Tuner. To meet the needs of digital media content, the CMM-30 includes Bluetooth® 5.0 streaming, an analog AUX-input, and a USB connection for smart devices or flash drives, with full support for iPhone album art.
This powered system features a built-in 100-watt (25w x 4 RMS) class D amplifier and four-channel 3.5-volt pre-amp output for vast system expansion. System audio can be fine-tuned with a 5-band EQ. The CMM-30 is built to endure years of use in harsh marine environments by utilizing UV-treated, durable, and marine-rated materials. This source unit is Salt and Sun Certified and built to exceed industry standards for salt-fog/UV exposure (ASTM B117/D4329) and shock/vibration resistance, ensuring excellent long-term durability.
“We are thrilled to see the new Clarion Marine CMM-30 earn recognition from Boating Industry magazine for its innovation. Being included among the industry’s top products for the year further reinforces the work that our team has put into reshaping the brand and bringing to high quality and long-lasting marine audio products with modern features to market,” said John Zimmerman, Clarion Marine product line manager.
