DUAL ELECTRONICS INTRODUCES NEW SEA-WORTHY
MARINE AUDIO RECEIVERS AT 2012 INTERNATIONAL CES

Products feature built-in Bluetooth, Weather Band Tuner, SiriusXM-Ready™ and are designed
to withstand exposure to water and sunlight

Las Vegas, NV (January 10, 2012) Dual Electronics Corporation unveiled today 8 new marine audio
products including two CD receivers and six receiver & speakers combo units. Shipping now, the products
are specifically designed for use in harsh marine environments. The new introductions are on display in
booth 1818 in North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"This line is geared specifically towards performance, long-term protection from the elements and
integration with the latest portable media devices, said Jim Braun, President and CEO, Dual Electronics
Corp. Convenience while on the open water is paramount to an enjoyable marine excursion and these
innovative and durable products enhance the boating experience. With a variety of features and pricepoints,
there is an option for everyone."

All new CD receivers include removable silicone covers to protect front panel inputs from water splashes
and debris, while the faceplate and other exposed elements are injection-molded using high-temperature
UV-resistant resins to prevent weathering and breakdown from the sun. The chassis is wrapped in a tough,
dirt and moisture-resistant layer of PET (polyethylene) while Electrophoretically Deposited Paint (EDP) is
applied to the chassis offering additional protection against corrosion. To protect the internal components,
a transparent protective coating is applied to all circuit boards surfaces and guards against dust,
condensation and corrosion ensuring maximum durability in marine environments.

The stand-alone AM400W CD receiver (MSRP $119.99) boasts a built-in 7-channel NOAA Weather Band
Tuner, direct USB control for most iPod and iPhone devices, and includes a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary
input for connecting other portable media devices. The more full-featured AMB600W (MSRP $179.99)
adds built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology with support for hands-free calling (HFP), audio streaming
(A2DP) and player control (AVRCP), an SD card input and is also SiriusXM-Ready. The Bluetooth
technology allows the user to conveniently integrate smartphones and other portable media devices into the
boats audio system, while keeping the devices hidden and protected from possible water splashes. The
SiriusXM Connect universal tuner allows the Vehicle Tuner Kit to be plugged directly into the receiver.
(Sold separately, SiriusXM subscription required.) Both receivers feature a vibrant, high-contrast (black on
white) LCD display which ensures full visibility even in extreme sunlight.

The six receiver and speaker combo units provide full sound in a compact package and range in price from
$89.99-$159.99. They each come with a receiver and 6.5 speakers with a dual cone design, a corrosionresistant
ABS basket, and are constructed with high-temperature and UV-resistant materials.

The AMCP400W (MSRP $159.99) includes the new full-featured AM400W CD receiver described above
and two speakers. The MCP300GH combo pack (MSRP $159.99) offers a CD receiver with front-panel
USB and 3.5mm auxiliary inputs, an SD card input (behind the faceplate), and has the ability to play back
CD, MP3, and WMA formats. It also comes with a fully enclosed Gimbal Housing that can accommodate
most 1.0 DIN head units and features a rubber-seal transparent fold-down door, UV resistant construction,
stainless steel mounting hardware and rubber grommets for cables to give the unit long-lasting protection
from the elements. The MCP300 combo pack (MSRP $139.99) features the same CD receiver and speakers
as described above minus the gimbal housing.

The mid-range MCP204 and MCP200S (both MSRP $139.99) offer CD receivers with front panel USB
power port and 3.5mm auxiliary input and compatibility with CD and CD-R/RW formats. The MCP204
comes with two pairs of 6.5 speakers while the MCP200S comes with two speakers and a splashguard
with transparent fold-down door with rubber seal to further protect the receiver.

Rounding out the new offerings is the MCP100 combo pack (MSRP $89.99) featuring digital media
receiver with solid state mechless design and a pair of 6.5 speakers. The mechless receiver accepts only
digital media and is compatible with MP3 and WMA formats. For added convenience, the USB, SD card,
and 3.5mm auxiliary inputs are located on the receivers front panel.
