The MMR-40 is a NMEA 2000® Network Controller engineered to add full‑function, auxiliary control to MediaMaster® source units.
Outfitted with a NMEA 2000® Micro‑C connector, the MMR‑40 connects to a host MediaMaster® source unit in two ways:
- Direct interface with a vessel's NMEA 2000® network using applicable NMEA 2000® cables and connectors
- Direct connection of one MMR‑40 with one host MediaMaster® source unit using MMC‑PN2K powered network cables to simulate an isolated, stand‑alone NMEA 2000® network
Once connected, the MMR‑40 automatically recognizes the host MediaMaster® source unit and will then mirror all host source unit controls and screen info onto the MMR‑40's full‑color, 2.8‑inch LCD display, resulting in a complete MediaMaster® user experience.
The MMR-40 is equipped with independent display theme and lighting controls for maximum mounting location flexibility, regardless of the settings on the host source unit. Engineered for real‑world marine (and many outdoor) applications, its weatherproof (IP66 rated) chassis is built to withstand the harshest environments.
The MMR-40 includes the following features:
- NMEA 2000® Certified (LEN 4)

Note: The MMR‑40 is not a stand‑alone receiver and does not function without a connected MediaMaster® source unit. All remote control functionality of the MMR‑40 is solely derived from the host source unit. Functionality of the MMR‑40 requires connection to a NMEA 2000® network or use of MMC‑PN2K powered network cables.

MVi Marine Amplifiers
Reference-grade marine amplifiers with integrated DSP.
MVi amplifiers usher in a totally new level of marine audio performance, with all‑new amplifier circuits and amazing on‑board tuning capabilities.
Each MVi model is packed with a very complete package of digital signal processing (DSP), including EQ, Delay, Crossover Signal Routing, Mixing and lots more. Instead of using traditional control knobs and switches, MVi amplifiers are configured using JL Audio’s free TüN™ software on a compatible computer, tablet or smartphone. While operating the boat, stored DSP presets can be recalled at the push of a button using the optional M‑DRC‑50 controller, allowing you to instantly adjust the audio system's tuning to suit different activities.
MVi amplifiers and their companion MV subwoofer amplifiers are built for years of reliable marine service, featuring a unitary cast alloy chassis with a marine‑grade powder coat finish and corrosion‑resistant hardware and connectors.
When only the best will do, MVi is your marine amplifier.
