San Juan Yachts Chooses Niles Audio
At home or on a yacht, integrating multiple entertainment systems without a slew of wires, a wall full of equipment and a lot of expense is challenging. The space-saving convenience and professional design of Nile Audio’s new Intellicontrol ICS System is what, in part, motivated Anacortes, Wash.-based San Juan Yachts to make the system a standard feature on all its new 48-foot yachts after installing the first one at the bequest of the owner of a SanJuan48.
“We soon understood what the owner loved about the system,” said San Juan Yachts co-founder Donald Campbell, adding that the first installation of Niles’ flexible ICS System did not give the yard any trouble. On this particular SanJuan48, the system the owner chose has five audio zones, each connected to two speakers. Music and audio sources include AM/FM radio, Sirius|XM Satellite Radio, iTunes and two Samsung LCD LED TVs, which link to Apple TV. Three Niles touchscreen interfaces and two Niles in-wall panels control the entire system. A 4G mobile hotspot provides Internet access.
Add a wireless connection, and the Niles Audio’s ICS multizone system can even be controlled via iPhone.
