I don't know what they offer up in Canada, but here's a link to the radios that tss-radio has to offer that are home use only and they ship up to you guys...

You might also want to look at the Tivoli. It's pricey, but it's nice...

I'd stay away from the SR-H550. It's overpriced. I think they took a regular Sirius receiver, hooked up the line out to a optical digital converter, then put it in a stereo enclosure. The Sportster Replay is a much better deal, if you don't need an optical out.

The SCH1 seems good, but you will need a Sirius-ready receiver to use it.

The Conductor is new. Haven't heard much feedback, yet. The display on the remote seems like a good feature. It probably eats batteries, though. A good choice, if you're an early adopter.

The RCA RTD260... well, I want one! I like the built-in up-convert DVD with HDMI and component outputs. One less thing for under the TV.

The RCA RS2058 does not include a SCH1 tuner.

I just ordered the RTD260 package from TSS.

I did some online shopping. You might be able to find the RTD260 for $200 from someone you trust, but I could not find it bundled with the SCH1 receiver anywhere else. They also include an HDMI cable. Street price (my estimate) would run about $350, not including shipping. TSS wants $310 and shipping is free.

I guess I'll have a DVD/VCR combo to donate to Goodwill in a few days.

Edit: $309.99.
Edit: That's US$, and free shipping is to USA only.
