    Rockledge, FL, September 3 — Roswell Marine Audio, a division of Roswell Wake-Air, announced the debut of their new Cybox Bluetooth Interface. Now anyone can enjoy the same functionality, quality, and convenience of an in-home wireless audio system, in their boat.

    “It just takes minutes to hook up and it works perfectly” says Travis Moye, founder of The Boarding School and Pro-Tour driver. Simply power the Cybox and connect the outputs directly to your amplifiers. The Cybox supports aptX®, A2DP, and AVRCP profiles allowing the device to retain full integrity of the original digital audio files and is optimized for instant real-time audio streaming. With a built-in line driver, the Cybox produces a line-level output voltage that allows it to function as a standalone unit for your amplifiers to achieve their optimal output. This eliminates the need for raising the gain settings to levels sometimes producing unwanted electrical noise.

    “I was instantly pumped on the new Roswell Cybox! Ever since I first saw the prototype on display last year at Surf Expo, I have been begging for one,” boasted Moye, “I’ll never have another boat without it again.”

    Roswell Wake-Air started over a decade ago in 1998 when founder Robert Oswell re-designed an existing extended pylon pushing the limits of technology. Since then, innovation, technology, and quality have been at the heart of the company’s pursuit of excellence. In 2008, Roswell Marine Audio was created and became a global provider of marine audio and accessories. It is their drive and commitment to designing, developing, and manufacturing the highest quality wake products that pushes the team put in countless hours at the office, on the road, and out on the water to make wakeboarding and everyone’s on-water experience better on every continent.

    ORLANDO, FLA (July 25, 2014) — Throughout the past week, Nautique employees traveled from Orlando, Florida, to El Salvador and served as part of the Nautique Cares initiative.

    Forty Nautique employees participated in one of two service trips to El Salvador. Both groups aided in construction work at a rural mountain school for nearly 400 students. Each team also had the opportunity to interact with students at the school where they passed out supplies and played soccer and basketball with the children. In addition to their work at the school, Nautique employees also served in a hospital and distributed food provided by Nautique to several hundred needy families.

    This is the seventh year of service trips for Nautique and each year they continue to grow and provide Nautique employees an opportunity to serve others who need our help. During this time Nautique employees have taken service trips to Mexico, India, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and the Apace Reservation in Arizona.

    “Each service trip with our employees reminds me how grateful I am to be a part of the Nautique team. Over seven years ago we started the Nautique Cares initiative which allows us to use our resources to help others in Central Florida (our home) and around the globe,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “Earlier this year our team donated a Super Air Nautique G21 to the non-profit organization As Our Own to raise awareness and funds for an amazing group fighting for at risk girls in India. We encourage people to learn more about this at www.nautiquecares.com,” added Yeargin.
