Need a new head unit in my Magic. Been looking at the different Fusion models. Anyone have any experience with their head units???

I have the ms-av755 , it's been a great unit so far. What I like is the simplicity how it's setup, getting through the menu and functions are simple. Also the zone volumes can be adjusted very simple too. I'd buy another one if it failed.

Have a MS-RA70 on my golf cart and Howard. Absolutely love them. Bluetooth is hooked up instantly. They are easy to use. The interface is super easy to use.

Yea mine right now sucks for BT, hard to see in the sun and not user friendly at all. Good to hear you guys like them. Wondering how the touch screen is.

I'm currently having trouble with the DVD playing function of one. Otherwise no qualms. Tech support is top notch. Especially in this day and age

I have no experience with fusion units, but have been very happy with my Kicker KMC-5 if you're looking at other options as well?

My Crest toon came with a fusion head unit, I didn’t like it and and replaced it with the wet sounds head unit - Thank you Wired For Sound !!
4 zones
Multiple RGB light control zones
2 remotes - bow and stern
its easy to use, I don’t use the boat all that much and it only takes a brief second to figure it out after not using it for 8-9 months

I picked up a used MS-RA210 last year and it’s awesome. Puts out way more power than my previous unit so I had to bring the EQ levels down to keep the sound clear. Daniel over at Wired4Sound warned me about them being able to overpower the amps when he made a custom blank for me so that made it easy. We had constant issues with Bluetooth and being able to see the display with our old unit. Menu is super easy to navigate and switch between different phones for sources with volume and track control from the phone or head unit. I think an Apple Watch will let you control it as well.

We had one in our ski boat in HI, no issues ran off bluetooth easily. Plenty of power for the small stereo that was in that boat.

Fusion makes great stuff...have had a couple of their units...never a problem....They may not have all the bells/whistles of Wetsound ....but Wetsounds is focused on the aftermarket RGB Pontoon, Wakeboard and Rzr crowd.... Fusion makes stuff that focuses on working well in wet and salty conditions...

I am a huge Fusion fan. I guess you either love and hate them but I have had about 6 of them and like them in marine applications.

I’ve had good luck with fusion. Easy to use and always works.

I’ve learned the true audio guys don’t like them for some reason.

There is nothing that compares to the Apollo MS-770, it’s on my list. I had the JL in last boat and as soon as i bought the new to us boat, i intended to ditch the Fusion UD-755, then i started playing with it and wow yea Fusion-Link alone makes it better than the others then the dsp, and WiFi vs Bluetooth on the 770 just set fusion so far advanced than the rest i cannot believe no one else has copied them.

Fusion is also NMEA2000 compatible and will talk to just about every smart panel cluster out there, including Garmin who makes Fusion
