Default Stiletto's Now on Shelves

I just left Circuit City, I was looking to see if they had any of the Docks or Cases, Nope, But they had several of the Stiletto's on the shelf. The salesman said he's had them for at least a week.

When I got home I went on-line. Actually almost all the CC stores in my area seem to have them in stock.

Are we starting to see the stock get plentiful for the Christmas rush?

Maybe Sirius will have plenty to sell this year.

Let's just hope they can get the accessories out to dealers soon too!

Default Availability

I too hope that the Stiletto is a great success.

I like the Stiletto so much that I ordered a second unit from TSS about three weeks ago, and it has apparently been delayed. I hope the factory is cranking these babies out to meet demand. It is a sensational unit, and the home dock makes it extremely easy to use and record with. There is a tremendous opportunity here for Sirius (particularly coming off of the recent two day free trial) and I just hope production issues don't hinder sales. It's frustrating to be so enthusiastic about a product, yet see so many availability issues.

Default Car Docks...

I went to Circuit City and Best Buy in San Diego yesterday and both stores had car docks in stock. Neither store had home docks or Stilettos in stock.

Hopefully the supply line will be filled before Christmas.

I live in what can most certainly be considered a "rural" area and I'm starting to see more and more Stiletto's filter in through the CC's and BB's. I don't see any home or car kits but, if they're hitting the major markets now then they should be everywhere by Thanksgiving.

I also liked the stiletto so much that I ordered a second. They come out in Canada in two weeks and I have one on order.

Thumbs up New Happy Stiletto Owner

I went to BB today and found they had 7 Stilettos in stock but no docks or accessories. I was glad to be able to get the unit. They told me that the Stilettos as well as the accessories have been flying out as soon as they get them in. Also, they told me that only a few of their stores have the Stiletto.

I'm really hoping to see some new after market accessories come out. I guess if sales continue to climb, this will attract more manufacturers. The one thing that is really needed are premium headphones (with the antenna). I find the ones that come with the unit uncomfortable and not very compact.

The guy at bestbuy told me that sirius only produces a few at a time and only restocks when the in store supply has run out. He also said that xm will produce much more stock, and then send more when the instore supply in down to half... anyone know anything aout this? doesn't sound like a smart way to keep your stuff on the shelves.

BB is really now stocking up.

Yesterday. 3 local BB had home docks so I went to pick up one. When I got there I was pleasently surprised to see that there was at least a dozen stilettos's About 6 car kits and 2 home docks. uh rather one now as I just got my second one.

The salesman said the stiletto's are flying off the shelves. He says he could sell a dozen a week. He said the only reason those 12 were left is no one knows they were there. Once they put in an ad they will all be gone.

This is good news. They really seem to be getting the stock out there for Black Friday. Now if my lousy CC would just get the home kits.
