A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


Torrance, CA – January 2008… When it comes to pleasure boating, the name Sea Ray represents a leading brand that countless enthusiasts aspire to owning. With many of the best built, most technologically advanced boats in the industry, Sea Ray‘s devotion to detail and their incorporation of the finest materials has led to countless awards within the boating community. With a stellar reputation like this, it should come as no surprise that the company looks to Antex Electronics as the supplier of choice for a multi-zone SIRIUS® Satellite Radio receiver–the Antex SRX-3 TriplePlay–deployed in its flagship 60 DA (Sundancer) yachts. Now entering their third year as the supplier of choice for Sea Ray‘s finest vessels, Antex Electronics‘ relationship with Sea Ray is more vibrant than ever.

The Antex SRX-3 TriplePlay is the world‘s first high-fidelity, 3-zone satellite radio receiver using the revolutionary SIRIUS Satellite Radio technology. Designed specifically to address the requirements of custom installers and high-end audio or home theater enthusiasts, the SRX-3 TriplePlay makes the ideal choice for inclusion into a multiroom, multizone audio distribution system. Featuring an intuitive interface for ease of operation, the Antex SRX-3 TriplePlay installs effortlessly and is built to last.

For Sea Ray‘s 60 DA yachts, the Antex SRX-3 TriplePlay provides the ability to have three completely independent channels of SIRIUS Satellite Radio in the yacht‘s Sunroom, Main Salon, and the Master Stateroom–thus providing a level of sonic opulence more commonly reserved for the finest residential homes or country clubs. With a rich feature set that both installers and end users appreciate, the SRX-3 clearly impressed Sea Ray‘s engineering staff.

George J. Moore, Sea Ray‘s Advanced Engineering Technical Specialist in the company‘s Product Development and Engineering group, commented on the company‘s use of the Antex SRX-3 TriplePlay. “We (Sea Ray Sykes Creek Engineering) were looking for 120 VAC SIRIUS receivers for the new (at that time) 2006 Sundancer models, as there wasn‘t a 12 VDC stereo on this yacht to function as the SIRIUS Satellite controller. After looking at the available 120 VAC SIRIUS receiver options, the Antex TriplePlay was clearly the best choice for our particular application. The TriplePlay saves us space and simplifies the installation and control of the entertainment components. As it requires only a single antenna, this also saves space and installation time.”

Tim Van Grove, Antex Electronics‘ Director of Sales, is equally enthusiastic about Sea Ray‘s selection of the SRX-3 TriplePlay. “Being an avid boater myself, I found this unique implementation of our satellite radios especially intriguing,” said Van Grove. “This is pure audio decadence inside a very luxurious yacht–something every owner of this class of vessel will most surely appreciate!”
