I have gotten some new info on the release dates on some new Sirius PNP units.. (updates below)

- Starmate Replay out in early/mid Oct..
- Sirius One out early Oct..
- Sirius S50 out early Nov.

UPDATE: I have been getting emails about these dates. All I can say is that these dates are from the Reps from the company making these items. I have also been told that big guys like CC and BB, want to unload the current stock.. The same thing happened when the Sportster Replay came out, you could get it online weeks ahead of the big super stores. One last thing to note, in the press release that Sirius put out about the S50 it said.. “Additional information about the SIRIUS S50 will be available on the SIRIUS website in mid-September.� Will we see this additional info this week?!?!?

UPDATE #2: Some coments have been posted about these dates, calling my Info, "B.S." I stand by the info I got, and I have been reporting every update I get on this page. As we all know the dates are something that are always in question. I have on record from a Directed rep that, the S50 will be in stores at the start of Nov. Also you can look on CMA, were you can preorder the S50. CMA has posted this update "Our most recent update is telling us the item should ship out in the very first part of November. Your payment information will be taken when the item is ready to ship." You can read this here .... Also I would like to point out the CMA was the first to have the Sportster Replay, weeks ahead of any place. So if they have Nov posted, look for the S50 in Early Nov... But on the other hand, day by day this info could change and I will post it when I get it.... No matter when this thing comes out it looks like a very nice product.

I hope the S50 doesn't get pushed back more and more like the ReGo(never came out)

hopefully the S50 actually arrives prior to Howard's arrival! Also, it would be awesome if the "extra information" about the S50 is that in the future you could listen live via an antenna headphones kit *fingers crossed*

everyone take a deep breath and RELAX!!!

the s50 will be in stores in mid october. just like the press release said. "the reps from the companies told me" is BS. whoever you talked to obviously were not from sirius or dei!

everyone calm down! it will be out on time.

...and sorry but there will not be a "live kit." instead, it will actually work the way sirius says it will. no need to walk around like the statue of liberty trying to get reception.

Anonymous, I stand behind the information I got from Directed, the people who make the S50.

I believe ya little. But I'm starting to get the attitude of, "I'll believe it when I see it".

And they better not do like Cabbage Patch did in the 80s! Was it make less to increase demand? So it will be sold out everywhere!

Let all hope we do not live the dark days of the Cabbage Patch, or even Pond Puppies.. I think, and hope Sirius knows this Xmas will be very big for them.. Hey you never know the rego may be out by xmas.. (kiddin') When ever this thing hits the stores they will sell, and so will the Starmate replays I think they will be the biggest seller for Xmas, the small size, good price, and time shift..

I think it's unreasonable to blame Sirius for the Rego. Xact does not make the Sirius-branded units. They are a 3rd party that creates hardware that happens to work on the Sirius service. The fault lies with Xact, for whatever reason which we may not ever know.

However - By the looks of it, they did manage to actually get the Visor out the door, as well as the XTR7 Screamer, etc. Clearly there's something not right with their Rego situation.

However - I do believe that the S50, Replay, and One will be out well in time for the Christmas season. DEI has succeeded at getting product out in reasonable timelines in the past, I have no reason to believe this won't be the case this time around.

I will say again...The S50 will be available in mid October. It will be in 2 of the largest retailers by mid-month, and then to a 3rd large retailer by end of October. Sirius will supply its 3 largest retailers first, than smaller companies like CMA.

Inventory will be light first, but there will be more than enough going into November.

CMA DOES NOT represent sirius in any way. remember the REGO? they kept changing the release date.

You need to find some new sources kid. And everyone else needs to keep in mind that this is a BLOG! this guy does not work for sirius (as he states in his profile,) and further more reps from Sirius or Directed Electronics will not give release date info out to just anyone.

Once again...The S50 will be out in MID-OCTOBER!!!! Start saving your lunch money.

P.S. I cant wait till this hits the stores in October so people can see how reliable your "sources" really are Damien!

"P.S. I cant wait till this hits the stores in October so people can see how reliable your "sources" really are Damien!" -from anonymous
I would like to point out the following:
1. Its Damian not Damien
2. My sources have been very reliable in the past:
This Blog 1st reported:
- Martha Quinn was to Join Sirius
- Info on the Starmate replay
- Info on a Color display
- just to name a few
3. As I posted this dates are subject to change as I posted, it is an update from the same person who told me about the Starmate Replay weeks ahead of anyone knowing about it..
4. I hope it is out mid-oct I want it now..
5. I will keep it updating the dates as I get them...

you keep uninformed people up to date with info. good for you.

however, the same source that emailed you info on the star mate replay and s50 color display emailed sbs and orbitcast the same info at the same time. this "source" of yours is no longer a source to anyone.

the S50 will be out in mid October.
it is well on schedule to arrive in the US early October. got it Damian?

To the guy who said, "Sirius will supply its 3 largest retailers first, than smaller companies like CMA." WOW how wrong are you! Look at the Starmate replay I do not see it at any large retailer! But for sale now at CMA!

the big box retailers need to sell through old star mate inventory first b4 they are shipped the replay model. look at what happened when xm shipped out the skyfi2. you can still go into a cc or bby and see a skyfi1 collecting dust on the shelves.
the big box guys WILL have the S50 by mid october.
