A versatile receiver for your vessel
Pioneer's MVH-MS512BS marine digital media receiver brings great tech and handy features to your boat. It gives you plenty of ways to play your music, plus built-in Bluetooth, smartphone control, and a reversed display that's easier to read in bright sunlight. With big buttons and a marine-rated design, it's made for the rigors of life on a boat.

Apple® control
With iPod and iPhone Direct Control, you can plug your device into the receiver's USB port and make music selections through the receiver. Plus, the MVH-MS512BS will also charge your device while you're playing your music.

Android-friendly features
Android users can control their music via Bluetooth or plugging into the front panel USB port and playing music while getting a 1.5-amp quick charge.

Pioneer Smart Sync
With Pioneer's Smart Sync app downloaded on your iPhone or Android, you'll be able to use your phone's touchscreen as an easy interface to play music, conduct hands-free calls, use navigation, and enjoy access to 31 bands of EQ. Alternatively, the MVH-MS512BS gives you dedicated buttons to access navigation on your phone and hands-free calling as well as a multi-function knob for text message playback, music selection and more. Pioneer also builds voice-control into Smart Sync to make hands-free operation even easier.

Add satellite radio
SiriusXM satellite radio is a great thing to have on a boat. The MVH-MS512BS lets you add a tuner (not included) that'll bring in tons of satellite radio programming that won't fade, even when you're miles offshore.

Designed for digital
Want to enjoy your own music? You can plug in a thumb drive and enjoy MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and high-resolution FLAC files, or use the aux input to connect an MP3 player or portable satellite radio. And with Pioneer's integrated MIXTRAX virtual DJ technology, your music collection becomes a non-stop playlist, with enhanced transitions and lighting. And, of course, you can also tune in your favorite local AM and FM stations.

Play your faves from Pandora and Spotify
If you stream songs from Spotify or Pandora, you'll gain some of your favorite functionality from those streaming services through this receiver.

Ready for expansion
The MVH-MS512BS has everything you need to make your music sound great, including time alignment and a 13-band graphic equalizer. With three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs, you're ready to go when it's time to add amplifiers and subs to your system. Pioneer's Smart Sync gives you even more sound adjustment tools and when you need more thump, there's a dedicated “Bass Boost” button right by the volume knob.

Installation note: This marine radio is water-resistant, but we recommend mounting it in a water-resistant enclosure or using a cover for best performance.
