Where is the new SIRIUS Stiletto 3?

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.

Lots of Changes in the World of TSS and SiriusXM

When it rains it pours. And now is one of those times, and it’s all positive.

In the past month we launched our new revamped website here at TSS-Radio. It was a tremendous amount of work and we are pleased with the overall result. We feel the website is easier to navigate and have heard that from customers as well. We’ve also added some new features such as now offering Paypal as a payment option and less expensive shipping options to Canada. One of the bigger advantages to our new website is that we have streamlined our offerings. In the past we carried every single accessory or part for Satellite Radio, which at the time was great, but we’ve changed our outlook and here’s why. We used to offer 4 different kits to Integrate Sirius into a Toyota and some of the kits worked better than others and had varying amounts of technical support from the manufacturers and us. It was redundant and overly complicated to find something simple. Our new approach is focused on the best of those products and helping you find them easier. And the important thing to remember is if you ever have trouble finding something we can always be reached by phone, 312-846-6606 or email sales@tss-radio.com

There also has been a lot going on at SiriusXM. Liberty Media has officially taken over majority control of SiriusXM. We feel that long run this will be a good thing. They will take the good things that Management has done and keep those and make changes to things that they feel will improve the company. For great info about all Liberty Media and the financial happenings of SiriusXM I always refer people to SiriusBuzz where they are experts as the subject and are more versed in it than myself.

One of the big changes at SiriusXM is that they have finally Merged the Billing. In the past if you had an XM Radio in your Car and bought a Sirius Radio for your home you would have to have two separate accounts that you paid full price for both. You couldn’t simply add the Sirius radio to your XM account. Now you can. And it’s explained more in depth within this thread on DRC.

The second big change is something I’m extremely excited about as well as many others. If you weren’t impressed enough with the fact that SiriusXM have an On Demand listening feature in which you can listen to shows on your time schedule and without commercials, than perhaps this new service will impress you. It’s called MyControl and it allows you to fine tune many of the stations you’ve loved listening to on the Satellite Radio spectrum. MyControl is SiriusXM’s take on Personalized Radio. And what’s so great about it is that the interface is simple and the service is tweaked the moment you take control. You don’t have to wait many songs deep before the service caters to your needs. If you enjoyed the 80s on 8 channel but didn’t like the Hits so much as the deeper tracks from the 80s, now you can tune out the hits and focus on the niche songs. DRC has a thread on MyControl for SiriusXM here. And SiriusBuzz did a story about it here.

Hopefully all the positive changes keep on this path!

SiriusXM coming to Google TV

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.

Here is a helpful video about Google TV

SiriusXM Internet Radio

Bleep blop blurp wuuurrr… Hey, your internet’s calling!  Its got a whole new set of skills.  The internet is a reliable source for just about anything you could possibly imagine.  Its a veritable genie at your finger tips.   Ask and ye shall receive.  But then you already know that.  That’s why you’re here.  You being the tech savvy consumer you are, have already figured out that TSS Radio is the best online retailer for all SiriusXM parts and accessories.  You know it, I know it, and the internet knows it.  That’s not why its calling.  The internet is calling to let you know about all of the SiriusXM content that’s available online.  With the update to Sirius 2.0 and its new Beta Player, there’s a whole lot to be excited about!

What is Sirius 2.0 you ask?  I’m so glad you did.  SiriusXM has provided online content for years, but the recent update to Sirius 2.0 it has gotten a whole lot better.  You still have the ability to listen to the online content anywhere you want, using the same username and password, on any device that can connect you to the internet.  The Internet Radio subscription gives you additional content, not available through the satellite feed, as well as the new XTRA channels.  The XTRA channels have a lot of great options, which for me, couldn’t be more perfect.  I love comedy, rock n’ roll, and sports.  With the XTRA channels, I get great new comedy selections from Carlin’s Corner and UCB RadioRockBar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Radio provide some of the best music ever made.  And SportsCenter gives me all the latest news from ESPN.  Not to mention, Internet Radio’s ability to give you live play-by-play for just about every sport out there.  Who could ask for more? Spanish speaking listeners?  Included in the new XTRA channels is a great deal of Latin programing, including about a dozen dedicated Latin & World channels.  That’s all in addition to the online channels only available with an internet subscription.  But Sirius 2.0 is much more than just XTRA Channels.

Have you ever wished you could time travel, but lacked the Flux Capacitor?  With Sirius 2.0’s Start Now feature you can go back 5 hours from where you start listening to see what you missed.  Some channels are more limited with this feature, but most talk shows allow it.  You can pause, rewind, and fast forward live radio on any channel.  Due to bandwidth restrictions there is a limit to the number of times you can skip a song, but the ability to go back to the beginning of a show is really unbeatable.  Not only can you jump back 5 hours, but you can search to see whats on other channels all while you listen to your current station.  There is even a Show Alert function that will tell you when your favorite song or artist is playing on another channel.  If you missed the alert and flipped over too late, don’t sweat it, Sirius 2.0 has that covered as well.  With TuneStart, SiriusXM automatically starts the song from the beginning when you tune into the station… On every channel!  You can even store your favorite channels for easier access.  Want even easier access?  Try On Demand, Sirius 2.0’s newest feature.  On Demand is exactly what it sounds like, the ability to access past shows at any time, and listen whenever you’d like!  With dozens of ways to tune in, whats not to love about Sirius 2.0?!

Whoopee, you say?  (With genuine excitement, I am sure)  How can I go about obtaining this glorious Sirius 2.0?  Why, how else?  The internet!  For just $3.99 you can add an internet subscription to your existing satellite subscription.  Then, you can access SiriusXM internet radio from home, work, or anywhere you get an internet connection.  Just because the content is online, doesn’t mean you need a computer to access it.  Internet Radios like Grace Wireless and the TTR1 Sirius Tabletop are great options for indoor use.  The Grace models provide features that go well beyond the SiriusXM online content by also delivering access to thousands of Internet Radio options from around the world.  Of course, SiriusXM provides receivers can deliver Sirius 2.0 as well.  The SiriusXM Edge, for instance, operates solely on a satellite feed, but comes equipped with Sirius2.0 features such as XTRA Channels.  The Edge is a Plug and Play receiver like most others on the XM platform.  On the Sirius side, the Stiletto 2 is capable of connecting via WiFi and therefore capable of getting Sirius 2.0 within range of a router.  The nice thing about the Stiletto is its versatility.  It can be used with WiFi, as a plug and play unit in docking stations, or portably with a built in antenna and battery.  Unfortunately the Stiletto is discontinued, so its parts and accessories are becoming more and more difficult to come by, though we will carry them as long as we possibly can.  One of the most fascinating and exciting receivers that receives Sirius 2.0 is the new SiriusXM Lynx.

The Lynx is a ground breaking new receiver for SiriusXM, that is sure to change how people listen to Satellite Radio.  It can be used portably with a WiFi signal and is optimally designed for Sirius 2.0.  With a built in speaker as well as a headphone jack, this radio is ideal for carrying around the house or office while streaming your internet subscription.  You can also use it like a Plug and Play receiver in Home Kits, Vehicle Kits, and Boomboxes where it will receive a satellite signal.  Another ground breaking feature is the ability to connect to devices via Bluetooth so your home stereo plays what the device you carry around portably displays.  The Lynx is designed on a modified version of the Andriod platform, and has a touch screen display that is very easy to use.   All of the features from Sirius 2.0 are available with this unit, as well as a few additional features.  Radio Replays, Artist and Song information, as well as some rumored updates yet-to-come such as On Demand, make this radio unparallelled to any other.  The Lynx makes one wonder why anyone would want to listen through a computer or app.

Computers, Tablets, and Smartphones are like the internet, they’re everywhere.  There’s a reason they call it the World Wide Web.  An internet subscription allows you to listen to live NFL games in Europe, MLB in Asia, and NPR in Africa.  Your only limit to the online content is internet access.  Connecting audio for these parts has never been easier.  Whether you are using the basic RCA Input, an iPod dock, or Smartphone adapter, TSS Radio has the parts you need to play your Radio at home or in a vehicle.  I’m of the opinion that SiriusXM Satellite is the way to go for road travel, and even in home with the right satellite radio home antenna.  With SiriusXM online, as with any online content, you will always be limited to internet access.  The Satellites hovering above North America ensure you will always have a signal provided you can aim an antenna in the sky.  When you do have internet access though, nothing compares to the clarity and quality of the sound on SiriusXM’s internet service.  Give it a try, you won’t regret it.  You can get a free trail right now from, where else?  The internet!  It’s a wonderful tool.  With Sirius 2.0, its even better.

Tailgating with SiriusXM

This post was written by: MattB

June 14th, 2012

Everybody likes to have a good time.  I’m no exception. I’ve always believed that music can take any experience to the next level.  Tailgating before sporting events or concerts with the right music gets you in the right frame of mind for the fun to be had at the event.  Musically, tailgating has come a long way from simply listening to the pre-game show on the radio – from listening to a cassette on a tape player to CDs to mp3 players today.  Each development was meant to open listening restrictions.

With cassettes, you could only listen to one side at a time, then with CDs, you could listen to one album at a time.  MP3s allowed us to listen to artists’ entire catalogs on one device, but my favorite way to get myself excited before any event is SiriusXM Radio.

The depth of music on SiriusXM is almost unmatchable by anyone’s personal library.  All the live concerts and rare outtakes are pretty much impossible to get on your own, not to mention some tracks played on satellite radio which were released direct from the artist’s personal vault.  This, to me, is the best thing about satellite radio – to be able to combine rare versions of our favorite songs unheard before by the public, the album version we all know and love, and the live version that was played just last week all in one place.  So, of course,  when I tailgate before a game or concert, SiriusXM radio is involved.

For me, on almost any occasion Bruce Springsteen and E Street Radio is appropriate.  That will be especially true when Bruce and the E Street Band come in to town and blow the figurative roof off of Wrigley Field this September.  I live on the top floor of an apartment building a few blocks from Wrigley Field.  September in Chicago usually features perfect weather for BBQ and tailgating, which go great together.  I’d love to be outside enjoying the weather and grill, but of course, I  need to be within earshot of my Sirius radio and E Street Radio.  I could grab my Sirius boombox, but I want to be able to hear it everywhere, including inside even when I might be outside tending the grill.  Unfortunately, I can’t blast my inside stereo so I can hear the music outside, so I use the Whole House FM transmitter to relay the signal to my FM boombox that I’ve got playing outside next to the grill.  With music playing everywhere, whether I have to go inside and get the burgers for the grill or I’m outside grilling them, the music is constant and I don’t miss a song.

As E Street Radio plays song after song, the debate begins as to whether or not Bruce will play that song tonight.  Then a live version of “Born to Run” comes on and of course he’s going to play that one, but the version I’m listening to is from the concert he played the previous week.  No place else can you get the kind of variety as you can on SiriusXM.  I love the genre choice on SiriusXM and then, within each channel, the variety of songs and artists played on a daily basis.

Of course, getting pumped up doesn’t just pertain to a Springsteen concert and E Street Radio.  I also used SiriusXM when I was back home in Philadelphia tailgating for a Flyers playoff game.  While I doubted I would hear the Rocky theme, “Gonna Fly Now”, on SiriusXM, (although it was possible if I was listening to Cinemagic) Classic Vinyl and some 70s on 7 did the trick.  Using my Sirius radio with the car kit playing through the car speakers along with a little portable grill and some adult beverages, our tailgate had it all.  To me, all three of those components are essential, but if I had to take one away, the last thing I’d pick would be my Sirius radio.  I don’t need to have a burger or something to eat while tailgating, nor do I have to have an adult beverage to get excited or ready for the event.  I DO, however, need to have some music playing.  Of course, I have my iPod, but there are only so many songs on there and some genres are lacking and it can’t compete with the catalog on satellite radio.  I also like the unpredictability of the songs of satellite radio as compared to my iPod.  I know the extent of my iPod library, but any song could play next (within the parameters of the channel) on SiriusXM and that is kind of exciting.

So, as Summer gets into full swing, SiriusXM is an integral part of tailgating and summer fun in general.  I’m one of those people who views music as a soundtrack to our lives.  I’d love to read your own tailgate stories and what SiriusXM channel is your favorite to listen to while tailgating.  Whether it is Jam_On before a Phish or My Morning Jacket concert, Ozzy’s Boneyard before a Metallica concert, Hip Hop Nation before Jay-Z takes the stage, or just Lithium before seeing your favorite team dominate their biggest rival, I want to know what gets your juices flowing while tailgating.

Hardwiring a Plug and Play Radio

This post was written by: Taylor

June 7th, 2012
Share Button

A lot of people want to hardwire their Plug and Play Radio. When they tell us that we need to clarify whether they want to hardwire the power (so that there is no need for a cigarette lighter plug) or if they simply want a direct audio connection providing crystal clear sound. We have options for both. But if you have the right vehicle we can provide an all in one solution that is perfect.

We are closing out what we call the “XM5” Aux Input Adapters from PIE. PIE made these years ago to initially support the newer 5 Volt Based XM Plug and Play Radios which is why they are called “XM5 Interfaces.” The XM5 Interfaces connect behind your factory car radio and provide a direct audio and power connection for 5 Volt Sirius and XM Radios. If your Sirius Xm Radio is a Power Connect Radio you will also need this additional plug.

Installation of the XM5 Interface is easy. The hardest part is simply getting behind the radio. If you are comfortable doing that it’s something you can install yourself. Otherwise look for a local car stereo shop. We suggest using Yelp reviews for that.

Here is the best thing about the XM5 Interfaces…they are on closeout for only $29.99. That’s less than half of their original retail price. So they are priced to move. You just have to check to see if your vehicle is compatible. Just look below for your vehicle and be sure to read the product description and compatibility notes.

If your vehicle isn’t compatible or the XM5 Interface is out of stock the next best option would be to hardwire the power with our Power Hardwire Kit and provide an audio connection with the FM Direct Adapter (just make sure your Plug and Play Car Cradle has an FM Output)

Sirius XM Satellite Radio Repairs from TSS-Radio

This post was written by: Taylor

May 22nd, 2012

One of the unique things we are able to do at TSS Radio is repair some common problems with your Sirius XM Satellite Radio. It’s a service we began offering about 3 years ago and we have had a great success record.

Droo not only helps our TSS-Radio customers through email, but he also does the vast majority of our repair work from his workshop in Maine. Pretty far from our warehouse in Chicago!

So if you have a Sirius or XM Radio that needs a repair, you can contact Droo via email at sales@tss-radio.com. Let him know what model of radio you have and what issues you are experiencing. Droo will get back with you and let you know if he is able to fix your radio. He’ll give you a quote and an address where you can send the radio. The repair itself may take a few days or a week to fix and he will then promptly send the radio back to you via US Priority Mail.

After it’s fixed, the issue is guaranteed for 6 months. Twice as long as the factory warranty on new radios!

Common repairs Droo performs are listed below:

  • Repairing dock connectors on the Universal Sirius Radios, such as the

-Screen replacement for the Sirius XM Mirge, the XM Xpress RC and the XM Xpress RCi. If the backlight of your radio screen went dull this is what you will need.

-Replacing the Dials on XM XMP3s and XMP3is.

-Repairing the Stiletto 2 Internal Antenna. Sometimes people will drop their Stiletto 2 too many times and the internal antenna within it will no longer work. This will fix it so you are once again able to get reception in the portable mode.

-Repairing the Power and Antenna Connections on Starmate Replays (Model ST2).

Unfortunately we no longer have parts or tuners to repair older Sirius Sportsters and Sportster Replay Radios. Since these radios were discontinued more than 6 years ago we don’t have access to the parts. We would highly suggest upgrading to a newer model radio like the Sirius Starmate 8 or a SiriusXM Edge and starting over with new Home Kits or Boomboxes or Car Kits if you need them. If you end up moving to the SiriusXM Edge then you will be able to access the 20+ Xtra Channels that are now available on that receiver.

So if you need a repair on your Satellite Radio please reach out to us via email so we can help you get back to listening to SiriusXM.
