Where is the new SIRIUS Stiletto 3?

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013
Share Button

We get a lot of people asking us when the next SIRIUS Stiletto is coming out. And the sad, harsh truth is there won’t ever be another SIRIUS Stiletto. But that doesn’t mean you are out of luck.

The original SIRIUS Stiletto was the Stiletto 10 and Stiletto 100. They came out before Christmas of 2006 and were an instant hit. The following year the Stiletto 2 came out. Smaller and more efficient. The Stiletto 2 is from 2007 which in terms of technology is a pretty long time ago. We tried grabbing stock of all the new Stilettos for as long as possible after they were discontinued but there is only so long that a retailer can sell a product that was no longer produced. In 2010 we said goodbye to the Stiletto’s with this touching cake.

Goodbye Stilettos

The Stiletto’s were great for a variety of reasons. If you recorded talk shows when you would listen back it would bookmark where you left off. It was a simple feature but fantastic. It also was able to listen to SIRIUS in Portable mode (either with the built in antenna or antenna headphones) or if you were in range of decent Wifi you could simply listen to an Online feed of SIRIUS.

 

But as great as there were they don’t fit into the evolution of SiriusXM quite like they used to. But we do understand how loyal people can be to them. In 2013 the SiriusXM Internet Radio is much more a part of the average subscribers routine. You pay a bit extra for an online login and you can listen Online, on an App or on a device like the SiriusXM Lynx. The Lynx is a twist on the Portable Satellite Radio and it’s very versatile. It’s packed with tons of features like a color touch screen, Game Alerts, 25 presets, it receives the Xtra Channels, and much more. The Lynx can play the part of a simple SiriusXM Dock and Play Radio where you move the unit from your Car to the Home or to work. But you can also listen to the Online service with it and Record Programs and access the On Demand content. It stores up to 200 hours of content and you can import your own MP3s onto it if you wish. One of the cooler features is that it can connect via Bluetooth and the it will connect with the Lynx Home Kit wirelessly. You can sit on the couch and change channels directly on the Lynx while the Home Dock is empty but hooked up to your home stereo.

 

Some of our customers have told us that the Lynx is a major part of their listening experience. Not everyone wants to use their phone to listen portably, whether it uses too much data or it simply drains the battery. And a unique thing about the Lynx is that you could activate it simply as a SiriusXM Internet Radio or a Satellite Radio or both.

The news was just released that Sirius XM content will soon be available on Google TV. Here is a link to the Reuters Press Release. Sirius XM will have a Google TV app that users can login and listen to their favorite shows, music, news or sports right on their Google TV. So it’s convenient for those that have a SiriusXM Internet Login and Google TV. We suspect there may be more of these types of deals in the future.

This device give you a 1/8th” jack to plug into the dock of a SIRIUS Radio-XM Radio-iPod or any other device with an audio output.
