Default Soloist Wins 2007 CES Innovations Award

The Directed Electronics Soloist Universal Sound System will be honored with the Innovations Award at the 2007 CES show in January.

The Soloist includes interchangeable cradles to dock different SIRIUS receivers that use the universal connector (like the Starmate4, Sportster4, and of course the Stiletto) not to mention docking support for the iPod. The Soloist comes with a SIRIUS home antenna, remote and MSRP's at $149.

Soloist also uses a patented "SurfaceSound" flat panel technology by NXT(R), and is powered by a 20 watt Tripath amplifier. It comes with front panel AUX IN and headphone jacks, rear panel AUX IN and OUT, rear panel USB port, and a built-in alarm clock with snooze button, which can wake the user to their favorite SIRIUS station or iPod song.

Orbitcast will be doing a hands-on review of the Soloist as soon.

Not perfect, but does a great job for me. I have enjoyed mine a great deal. Using the sleep timer when going to bed, recording with the music mode and/or waking up to music in the mornings. I find it does all these things very reliably. Most of all I am very pleased with the SQ it offers.

I too am pleased with the Soloist, but only have one concern. When I try to record Bubba at 1am, and then Howard at 6am, it records Bubba fine, but I find that the unit shuts down before recording Howard. I leave the Soloist on over night and it still does it. I even set the Soloist to turn off at 5am and back on at 6 but still the same thing. I hope it can be easily fixed.

It is a great unit. I can't believe how flexible the thing is--many Sirius models and for the iPod too.
