A compact marine receiver with a color display.

JBL’s PRV-275 marine digital media receiver will change the way you listen to music on your boat — without forcing you to modify your vessel. This multimedia receiver packs a lot of features into a compact design that fits into a standard tachometer opening.

You’ll enjoy AM/FM radio, of course, plus built-in Bluetooth® that lets you stream music from your smartphone. You can also use the rear aux input for your music player, or plug a thumb drive into the rear USB port to enjoy your favorite music. You’ll see what’s playing (including album artwork) on the 2-3/4″ LCD color display.


Owners Manual >>


Efficient and expandable
The PRV-275 features three pairs of rear-mounted preamp outputs, so you can expand your system with more speakers and marine amps whenever you’re ready. The color display, UV-stable face, and easy-to-use knob and other controls will stand up to sun, salt and moisture when you’re riding the waves. Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver’s Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone’s Bluetooth capabilities

Marine Certified: The JBLPRV275 gauge-style marine receiver has been engineered and tested for use in the harsh marine environment. The receiver features a solid aluminum chassis, front-panel protective gasket, and IP6 waterproof face. The receiver also meets or exceeds ASTM117 salt fog standards.

2.7″ Color Screen: The gauge-style marine receiver is equipped with a 2.7″ color screen for indicating song/artist/album information (no album art) and provides video display of a connected camera (sold separately). The brightness level of the display can be set from 0 to 5.

Built-in 4Ch Amplifier + 6Ch RCA Outputs: The JBLPRV275 marine receiver is equipped with a 50 Watts (Peak) x 4ch amplifier that is 2-ohm stable. The marine unit is also fitted with three pair of RCA outputs (Front/Rear/Sub) to connect external an amplifier(s) and/or powered subwoofer.

Audio Settings: The subwoofer output offers a variable low-frequency crossover (80/120/160Hz) and adjustable volume level (0-20). The marine receiver features 5 EQ preset modes – Flat, Classic, Pop, Rock, or Off.  The marine head unit also offers independent Bass, Midrange, and Treble control (-7 to + 7); along with Balance (L12 to R12) & Fade (F12 to R12) adjustment. When listening to music at low volume levels, the Loudness feature will boost the bass & treble response. Every time a button is pressed the unit outputs a beep tone (this can be turned off).

AM/FM/WB Tuner: The JBLPRV275 marine receiver features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can select either US or European tuning. It also features a built-in weather band tuner. You can store up to 18  presets each for AM, FM, and WB. Stations can be stored manually or automatically. There is Preset Scan function that scans each preset station in the current band for 6 seconds.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The JBLPRV275 supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth source device, such as your smartphone or tablet. You’ll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps and other audio content on your Bluetooth source device to the marine receiver. You’ll also be able to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) from the receiver’s front-panel. In addition, song/artist/album info (no album art) will be displayed on the unit’s front-panel. You can only pair and connect one Bluetooth source device at a time. Note: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

USB Port: The JBLPRV275 is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the chassis by a 6.5″ pigtail. The USB port allows you to connect a USB thumbdrive. The unit supports audio playback & control of MP3/WMA audio files stored on a compatible USB thumbdrive. The unit offers Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat playback functions. The Intro Scan feature allows you to locate and play the first 6 seconds of each MP3/WMA track on a USB stick. This unit will also display song/artist information. The USB port (5V/0.5A) can also charge the battery of some USB devices. Note: The unit’s USB port does not support Apple iOS or Android OS devices.

Aux Input: This unit features a rear mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary input on a 6.5″ pigtail so you can connect an external audio source. An RCA-to-Minijack cable (sold separately) will be required for the connection of a portable audio player with a headphone jack output.

Camera Input: This JBLPRV275 marine receiver features a composite video jack attached to rear chassis via a 6.5″ pigtail for adding a marine-grade camera (sold separately).

Mounting Options: The marine receiver features a gauge-style design and fits into a 3.375″ round opening. If you don’t have an existing gauge-opening in your boat, you will need to make a 3.375″ diameter cutout in the bulkhead. The integrated protective gasket, supplied U-bracket, and included hardware secure the unit in place against the mounting surface.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.


Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.


A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!


Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.


Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…


So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
