PS Engineering, Inc. introduces the PMA8000-SR audio selector panel.
The PMA8000-SR includes all of the current audio panel functions, plus functions such as split mode, a dedicated cellular telephone interface, a six-place high-fidelity stereo intercom with dual independent music inputs, a marker beacon receiver, and a built-in Sirius satellite receiver.
Sirius offers more than 120 channels of entertainment, including 65 channels of 100% commercial-free music.
Dual entertainment inputs for the PMA8000-SR allow passengers in back to listen to Sirius programming, or play their own CD/DVD. Meanwhile the crew in front can catch up on the latest news, with access to more than 55 channels of sports, news, talk and information including coverage of NFL and NBA games.
The PMA8000-SR incorporates a circuit that automatically mutes the music when there is a radio call, and then restores the music level. A front panel control gives the pilot the ability to enter into the “Karaoke” mode, allowing the pilot to listen to the music in the background.
The PMA8000-SR is FAA TSO’d and is now shipping. It is pin for pin retrofit compatible with the GARMIN GMA340.
