The GM800 (MF/HF) and GM600 (VHF) have a unified design and offer consistent operation. A combination of the directional keypad and soft keys provides simple operation. Most used functions are assigned to soft keys (at the bottom of the display) for quick one push function access. The large ten-key pad enables you to smoothly enter channel numbers, MMSI numbers with ID names and so on.
The LCD display has adjustable background lighting, making the menu easy to read and use. You can also set an alarm clock so that it fits perfectly in the kitchen or bedroom. The WR-5 comes with a 30-pin Bluetooth receiver so that you can listen to your favorite music via Bluetooth streaming!
Featuring a newly redesigned cosmetic layout with a 21% larger OLED display than the previous model with larger text font and easier to read while on the road. The newly redesigned lever key is used to fast forward to the next track or track back to the pervious track. You can also scroll through your lists to find the desired track.
Connect an iPod or iPhone to the DEH-X8700BS using the optional CD-IU51 interface cable for 30-pin devices (sold separately) or CD-IU52 interface cable for Lightning devices (sold separately) to enjoy the music stored on your device. Song, artist, time and album information are displayed on the LCD display. The Link Play feature helps you find content faster and the system's wired USB connection provides direct digital signal transfer from the device for clean, clear sound while providing 1 amp of current to keep your iPod or iPhone charged.
Users of Android devices running operating system 4.0 or later can connect and listen to music stored on their device to the DEH-X8700BS without the need for an app. The process is made possible using Media Transfer Protocol (MTP). MTP allows the CD receiver to recognize the Android smartphone as a music storage device. Users can now access music via USB stored on an Android device and operate basic operations like FF, REW, Play, Pause, Random Play, and Repeat. Metadata information such as track, artist, and album name can be displayed.

It includes a10.4-inch data terminal equipment featuring a color display with a variety of color backgrounds. The LCD gives you a bright picture with excellent color consistency, even when you are viewing the display from the side.
All MF/HF models are minimum configured as standard, consisting of a MF/HF controller+handset, transceiver and antenna tuner. The 150W model can be applied for non-solas vessels, but also configured with necessary options up to GMDSS A4 area. In contrast to the other two models, the 150W version has a smaller transceiver and antenna tuner which allows for a more flexible installation approach in confined spaces.
When more power output is required, simply select the 250W or 500W version. Additionally, the new 250W and 500W version come with a redesigned antenna tuner, transceiver and power supply designed to fit into an optional 19 inch rack :NCU-515A.

Tuners are listed alphabetically by manufacturer and in alphabetical and numerical sequence by model number. In parentheses after the model number are the year of introduction and most recent list price, and/or the original list price if indicated by "orig" (special thanks to David Rich of The Audio Critic for copies of historical material from his reference library). Please see the On-Deck Circle for tuners that we know very little about or that we're not sure merit a writeup.
SAE: There are a couple of SAE (Scientific Audio Electronics) tuners in our On-Deck Circle that we'd like to consider listing here if we can get some basic information on them. Please post in our FMtuners group if you have any information about any of them.
SAE 8000 (1976, $800, front, back, inside 1, 2, ad, press release) search eBay The 8000 is apparently the same tuner as the Mark VIII, with a different nameplate. See the Mark VIII writeup below. See how one 8000 sounded compared to many top tuners on our Shootouts page.
SAE Mark Six (1971, $1,050, photo) search eBay and SAE Mark VIB (1974, $1,250, photo1, photo2) search eBay The Mark VIB (or "MK 6B" as it says on the back) is similar to the original version of the SAE Mark VIII, but the VIB has an oscilloscope as does the Mark Six (which is also widely known as the Mark VI). The Mark VIB was sold in at least three versions: black face plain, black face rack-mount style, and silver ("champagne") face. (We haven't seen a rack-mount version of the silver-face variety.) The Mark Six and VIB are both FM-only tuners with analog tuning knobs and mechanical tuning capacitors, but digital frequency readouts with Nixie tubes. The Mark Six has a Tape Out jack on the front panel, and fixed and variable outputs and a "4 channel MPX out" jack on the back. One of our many contributors named John says, "The schematic does not show the actual circuit - it only indicates a 2-FET, 4-gang tuner. Evidently SAE purchased the front end as a complete unit from Görler, a German manufacturer." (Our contributor Peter W. adds, "Görler made excellent, stable and very long-lasting front ends for Acoustic Research, Scott and Fisher as well.") The Mark VIB is rare on eBay and usually sells for $650-900, but one with a nice cabinet fetched a stunning $1,537 in 10/03 when two guys ran it up from $815, and another went for $1,301 in 4/05. The low was $471 in 6/08. The Mark Six usually sells for $600-700, with a low of $487 in 10/09 and a record high of $1,295 in 4/11. See how one Mark Six sounded compared to other top tuners on our Shootouts page, and read our panelist David "A"'s Ricochet.
Here's our contributor Paul Bigelow's great review of the Mark VI: "The SAE Mark VI is an Ed Miller design and in the grouping of one of the most expensive tuners ever made. What did that kind of money buy? Scope tuning, Nixie digital readout, touch sensitive tuning/audio scope display, and a fine-sounding, sensitive tuner to boot. Physical description: The cabinet is all-aluminum construction. While this makes for a light cabinet and good RF shielding, it makes for poor magnetic shielding. The front panel is a light brass color, not unlike the '60s Fisher units. The finish is nice and the cabinet corners are rounded -- unusual, but easy to carry. Screw terminals for the antenna are on back and there are RCA outputs for fixed and variable level as well as RCA scope inputs for audio. The interior is nicely laid out. The top half of the tuner interior contains the scope, the IF/detector board, the multiplex and audio output board, the digital readout board, and the front end/first IF assembly. The bottom half of the interior contains the scope board, the power supply circuit board, the touch tuning sensitive relay board, and the front-panel switch assemblies. The construction is neat and laid out well but due to the orientation of the boards, access to the bottom of the boards for repairs is time-consuming. Only the multiplex/AF board has easy access."Special note must be made of the RF/front end assembly; it is totally encased in a brushed metal box - quite impressive. The tuning knob weight is a gorgeous brass-colored cylinder and is nicely machined. The digital tuning board in encased with a cover. I have seen pictures of the Mark VI's interior without this cover. I do not know if the cover was added later or eliminated early, or if the example seen was tampered with. The tuning mechanism is well made and simple: a small belt from the tuning shaft to the capacitor pulley. The circuit boards appear to be of glass epoxy. The Nixies are Amperex ZM1000. The scope display is D7-200GH and is made by Brimar. The scope tube has a square display. The phosphorous is green in color. Both the scope display and Nixie tube readout are behind a dark brown plastic cover, invisible when turned off.
"Circuit discription: The signal passes through a balun and directly into the front end. I do not have schematics of the front end but it is noted to be four gangs with two FETs. The front end was sourced outside of SAE. The signal is then routed to the first IF amp, a socketed CA3053 IC. Next is one of the various unique parts of the Mark VI: the 10.7 IF signal passes through the first IF filter, not just any filter but a metal-encased, potted, 9-pole toroid filter assembly from Filtec. I would think this filter is 'unalterable' and could not be repaired. This filter is attached to the RF front end box. I would leave it alone. Technically, it is 3-pin with an in, an out, and a ground. This filter assembly was a source of great debate at SAE as quality could vary wildly as supplied from Filtec. Many were rejected at the SAE factory. Next is the second IF, another CA3053 IC. This is followed by another 5-pole Filtec 10.7 IF toroid filter. It looks just like the 9-pole only smaller. Next come two IF amps and limiters MC1355PQ IC. The detector stage is next. In parallel to this circuitry are the scope display amp, and muting and stereo threshold adjustments. The multiplex section follows and it is totally discrete. It has SCA filtering. The audio section is next and that contains the 19 kc filter and muting attenuators. High frequency blend is switchable. The output is either fixed or variable through a discrete switching arrangement. The power supply is regulated. My schematic contains the Mark VI for the RF circuits and the Mark VIB for the power supply and scope circuit. Based upon comparison of the schematics, info from James Bongiorno, and my own unit. I would say the Mark VI and VIB are very similar but not identical.
