I thought the cables connected directly into the Roady. So when they plug it in do they need to plug in all of the cables, or does the cradle have all the cables plugged into it?

The cables still plug directly into the Roady. It's really just a stand with a home antenna, audio cable and DC adapter.

Can you fix a spelling error on the matrix? Skifi should be SKYFi. Thanks.

Also, the height of the Kenwood on the stand is just under 3 & 1/3 inches. 5/16 of an inch to be exact. The width and depth are not changed.

I am thinking of getting the PNP1 or the Brix Streamer since I prefer a blue or green display to the orange of the PNP2. If I choose the PNP1, is there any performance diffence between that and the PNP2. (i.e. does the PNP1 pickup the repeater signals?). And, does the Audiovox FM car kit have the ability to use RCA jacks instead of the modulator?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Not in terms of picking up signal, and speed of decoding it.

Yes.

Default Matrix Update!!!

I updated this matrix with the information for the JVC. Including the dimensions. I also added pics of the boombox's for Audiovox and Streamer.

I'll add the Clarion and Blaupunkt as I get more information on them.

Here is the URL for the Comparison Matrix, so that you don't have to go back to the first of the thread to get it.

The Clarion has now been added to the Matrix. I just lack the demensions, so will add them once I get time to find that.

Hey guys, I'm new to Sirius and have been shopping around for a system I can add to my GM stock radio (it has a aux button in front), so I was wondering what you might suggest I can get on a small budget.

I noticed that the Jensen kits are pretty affordable, but I haven't heard anything about Jensen from anyone out of nor in this forum and it's not on the comparison chart.

Thanks alot for all your input it's been pretty informative for me so far, but I can't seem to decide on what to get.

...

First, welcome to Sirius Backstage and to The Dog!

I think you will find folks here will highly recommend the Audiovox PNP2, the Brix Streamer and the Clarion PNPs that just came out.

What year and model is your GM? It didn't, by any chance, come equipped with XM did it?

And if it's 2002-->2004 model year, you can potentially add Sirius right to the factory radio that way. Just check out soundgate.com(I can't figure out how to access brackets on this Italian keyboard to make the link active, and the connection I'm using is too slow to go there to give you the page without spending a couple more Euros doing so.)

Hello guys, and thanks for the warm welcome!

My radio is a non-Satellite ready one, but it has the auxilliary button on the face and a CD changer plug in back.

After entering my first post to this board, I read some more and found as well that the Audioxov PNP2 and Streamer seem to be the prefered selection.

I have been looking mostly on eBay and it looks like the Streamer is advertised as an XM unit.

The PNP2 combo packs seem to not include a car antenna.

My understanding, so far, is that Sirius is the way to go.

Between the PNP2 and the Streamer, the quality, features, and pricing seem the same and for now are out of my affordability range.

Nobody speaks of the Jensens though they are all in around the $50-$65 range, more in my price range than the other two, and they are truly complete combo packs that really do include everything you need.

Though it seems I should really, and would like to, go with the PNP2, when you add up a PNP2 combo pack and a car antenna it really gets way up there pricewise.

I know that once I commit to a system I don't want to have to change it, so I am being cautious and patient, I guess I should maybe wait for the right deal on a PNP2 to be discovered or wait to hear how the Jensens are panning out by their users.

I'm looking forward to your comments, and thanks again.



Keep on ridin' the soundwaves...

The Car kit comes with an antenna, therefore if you get a combo pack the antenna is included. The total would be much less this way. If you get the Car kit without the FM Transmitter, I think you can get it for around $30 bringing the total to around $130. This combination would work if you have an Auxillary input to your radio.

As far as the Jensen, it is an ok starter radio but since you seem to not want to switch, it's better to go with a better radio like the PNP2 or Streamer.

For a less expensive option there is an AudioVox FM Modulated radio that can be found for $49 which has all you need and is probably a better choice than the Jensen. Or maybe you can find a clearance PNP1 Combo pack for $99 at Best Buy. This isn't as good as a PNP2, but is better than the Jensen or AudioVox for sound quality and features.

Good Luck in your Decision

I STILL have my Jensen, which I bought in May 2002, having a paid an embarassing price for it.

NO WAY NO HOW would I buy a Jensen in 2004. I would not even take one FREE. Go with a PNP2 or a Streamer.

You'll be ever so much happier. Far more reliable, far more features, better sound, easier to use...What's to recommend the Jensen?

The bitterness of low quality will be remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
