Sirius One Review

Friday, October 28, 2005

FIRST ON GSI:
The Sirius One, Wow it is a really cool look very small and light..
Once more The Sirius Store was to first to have this radio... The $49.99 package comes with, a very thin and easy to use remote, Suction Cup Mount (like one you would get with a radar detector) Dash/Visor Mount, Car Antenna, and Cigarette Lighter Adaptor. There is also Velcro, and 3M mounting tape.. The box is tells you it is the "EASIEST way to start enjoying SIRIUS..." Here is some quick things about it, the display is very nice for what it is... Blue with Blue backlight, one line 12 character display. There is multiple display modes; Category Name, artist and Song, Song, Artiest, and channel name.. The display will also flip if you want to hang it upside down on your visor this will allow the buttons to be at the bottom of the unit. The car Antenna is the first I have seen with out any SIRIUS markings on it, it is also flatter and a little wider then the Starmate Replay ones. One other thing is that the Starmate home kit power adaptor will work with the Sirius one.. Some down falls about the Sirius One, The only way to enter a direct channel number is on the remote.. and that there is no S-Seek, and the one line display. But for someone who wants to get Sirius, and can deal with the scroll display.. I think this is worth the $49.99. The remote is easy to use and works very good. I do like the way it works in the car, putting it on the visor you can hide all the wires, and get a very easy and clean install. It really looks like a radar detector, and this could be a problem in some states.. The radio runs warm, and gets to the same temp as my Starmate Replay. The FM transmitter is about the same as the rest of Directed radios. The Sirius One also have a FM preset button on the remote and the unit, you can set 5 preset FM stations to broadcast on.. The radio sounds good over the FM transmitter and out the audio out. There is an FM out so you can use aWired FM Modulator.. It is no Starmate Replay but the price is right.. I think this over the XACT visor, I have just played with the XACT Visor in a store and I fells cheap over this sold Sirius One..
