What a great way to spend a sunny, warm weekend, out on the ocean wave aboard one’s own yacht. I have a hectic work life. I leave home quite early in the morning and make my way by car into the heart of the city. I must admit I don’t much enjoy the traveling to work, and don’t much enjoy the city, but a weekend out on the ocean makes every worry or concern disappear.
A main interest
One of my main interests other than my family and my boat is of course my music. I like all genres and styles of music but above all else I like classic rock n roll. I must admit I earn more than a decent wage so I make use of what I have and buy the best equipment I can. I don’t just go and buy anything, not when it comes to having the most expensive audio equipment for my home, or for my boat. To get the very best both for money and quality then research and more research is key.
Budget and research
I spent many hours researching different marine stereos and devices for my boat. When choosing the stereo itself for instance I spent at least 8 hours solely online looking at different stereos and what each model had to offer me. When I had a clear idea of what stereos were likely to make the cut I then had a look at the numerous marine stereo reviews on the Internet.
What’s clear is that people certainly like to leave their feedback and I guess that being online and not face to face with somebody then you can be as honest as you wish. Certainly the marine stereo reviews helped me narrow my search down to just two marine stereos.
Once I had decided which two marine stereos I was going to choose from I then found a store fairly nearby that had them installed in their showroom and gave them a whirl. It was quite easy to pick the overall winner, but I had another choice to make.
Which marine stereo to choose?
The marine stereos both could be bought as a package. Now I had to decide whether to buy a marine stereo package or only the stereo itself. I decided not to buy there and then and instead I opted to go home and check out a few things. Eventually the choice was simple. Again with the help of the many marine stereo customer reviews online I made the choice that the package was indeed a good deal.
I returned to the store a few days later and spoke to the salesman about the price of the marine stereo package. Now it would have been very easy to just return home and buy online and save myself a few dollars, but the fact that the store had been so helpful I felt I would buy with them. In fact after mentioning the price of the exact same marine stereo package that could be found online the salesman gave me a better deal that I was completely happy with.
Eventually I managed to install the package on my boat and give it a proper testing over one weekend. I took a couple of flash drives with me loaded with old rock n roll and other genres on them and sailed out to sea. I plugged in the flash drive into the USB port and whacked up the volume, and even with the boats engine running the sound that came from that marine stereo was outstanding.
The weather was beautiful and the water was calm and clear and the music really made the day. So if you’re in the market for some new audio equipment for your boat then I would always recommend checking out those reviews online to help you make a good choice.
