The S50 Full Details
Now something offical from Sirius on the S50
The SIRIUS S50 measures just 1.9 by 3.9 inches and 0.7 inches thick, and includes a full color display, sleek black exterior and voice-assisted channel navigation. When attached to a home dock, car dock or executive docking station, the SIRIUS S50 provides easy access to live content, and captures and stores both scheduled and unscheduled SIRIUS programming. This feature allows users to listen to SIRIUS' unique programming anywhere.

The SIRIUS S50 stores content in a variety of formats for listening on the go, including "My SIRIUS Channels," "My SIRIUS Songs," "Scheduled Record," and "My Playlists."

  • The "My SIRIUS Channels" feature automatically gathers and refreshes sets of programming from the user's three most-listened-to channels.
  • The "My SIRIUS Songs" feature allows the user to save favorite songs or talk shows with the press of a button.
  • The "Scheduled Record" feature allows the user to set the radio to capture favorite shows on a one time or recurring basis.
  • The "My Playlists" feature allows users to supplement SIRIUS content with their own MP3/WMA library when attached through the home dock to a PC. The PC application also allows users to synch channel and image updates automatically through SIRIUS' website.

The car and home kits utilize a rotary "SIRIUS Media Dial," which provides quick and easy access to content. Listeners can turn the knob to find their favorite SIRIUS channel, tilt to pause, rewind, fast-forward or save a favorite song or show. In addition, voice-assisted navigation tells the user what channel they've selected, eliminating the need for the user to take their eyes off the road while driving. The radio also includes 30 channel presets; a jump button for one-touch tuning to traffic and weather reports or to a favorite SIRIUS channel; a sports ticker that flashes personalized sports scores; and a "Game Alert" feature which prompts when the user's favorite NFL, NHL, NBA, or other sports teams are playing on SIRIUS.

The SIRIUS S50 will be available for a suggested retail price of $359.99, and includes wearable accessories (6-hour rechargeable battery, ear buds, belt clip, armband, USB cable and AC adapter) and a car dock, which includes an adhesive mount, custom cigarette lighter power adapter, a remote control, ultra-low profile antenna, DC input and line output. A home dock, which includes audio mixing for PC sound pass-through, and connects to speakers and PCs, a remote control, home antenna, USB cable, audio cable and power supply will be available for MSRP $99.99. A desk or wall mountable executive system, including high fidelity speakers, will also be available. Replaceable batteries will be sold separately.

Additional information about the SIRIUS S50 will be available on the SIRIUS website in mid-September.

I love this unit, it looks awesome. However, I think Sirius management has dropped the ball here. The market (STern Fans) are going to wanna listen to Stern live, while going to work. You will not be able to do that with the S50.

You will have LIVE radio and Stern when you have a docking system.. For your car, home, etc. They may come out with a kit so you can have it on the go.. Note this is not the only radio to be shown off today.. .

Question about the new radio, will you be able to listen to the NFL on it as you go? Or is there no "on the go" type feature at all?
