Sonos speakers are not designed to be speakers that are driven by another device, like a radio, generally speaking. That being said, the Play: Of course, if you had a Sonos speaker, I believe you wouldn't need the extra radio, you could just hook up the Sirius stream in the Sonos application. I have the radio, and the Pay 1 speaker, and now i have some new questions about whether i should return the Play 1 in exchange for the play 5 or investigate further about hooking up the Sirius stream in the Sonos application. If you're looking to use a Sirius radio in your home, I highly recommend this unit!
This product replaces my original equipment and works as expected, that is, just like the original. I've been through three antennas and two home docks now, in attempts to find the reason that my Sirius radio keeps cutting out. It appears now that neither the radio receiver, the antenna nor the docking station are to blame. I did a "full reset" reloading the ENS number through the Sirius website a few days ago and have had no problem since. This is a poorly made and extremely flimsy unit.
After about eight months, the mini phono plug began to be hard to connect. Shortly afterwards it broke off the board. Save your money, over priced junk!
I ordered a sirius car radio with a home kit. I absolutely love the home kit. It was easy to install, put the antenna at a south facing window and have all the music I want. I did the same with my car kit but am not happy with the installation on the vent grill, it's kind of wobbly but music comes in. I did have to buy a casette connection in order to play it over the radio. Where I live there is no reception for radio channels.
They will invoice me, which I prefer to having them deducting money endlessly until you cancel from your credit card. It's fun just to take the little radio and move it from house to car and have all the music one ever wants. I bought this after signing up for Amazon Prime.
Received it in two days at no extra charge. Hooked it up to my Onkyo receiver and ran the antenna cable outside I had to drill a hole through the wall to get the cable outside, behind my components. I put two screws onto the outside edge of the overhang of the roof and mounted the antenna. Came inside, hooked up all the wires to the dock and plugged in my Sportster 4.
I got the full 3 bars of signal strength and am enjoying my Sirius Satelite Radio as I'm typing this review. So long as you mount the antenna as the directions state, I don't think anyone should have a problem with the reception. The instructions included show what direction the antenna should be pointing depending on what part of the country you live Item was defective out of box - no power to radio through dock.
Radio works fine when connected to AC directly; the dock has some defect that disrupts power. Contacted Amazon for replacement but I was informed that Amazon has placed the product under review due to the high number of complaints received about product being defective.
Every product has a few go bad, but the high numbers here suggest a wider problem. Bought to go with my Starmate 5 unit.
Be aware that it doesn't work with all units But the ac adapter and antenna probally will. One person found this helpful. See all reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Pages with related products.

The small one that comes in this home kit is ok but if you really want to hear a crisp signal the outside Antenna is your best over all choice.. This home kit only works with certain models The edge is the one that I have and I have connected it to my stereo Receiver. It is wise to use the home dock that comes with this package. So that the radio has a place to rest on with out falling all over the place. It does not matter where you place the radio itself it matters where you place the antenna.
The radios can receive no signal with out out that antenna connected.
I purchased this though Satellite Radio Superstore. Due to the packaging I knocked off 2 stars. On the shelf at a major retailer, this kit comes in a box as pictured in the item description. This product was not packed in any box, it was packed in a large heavy-duty plastic zip-type bag, and shipped in a padded envelope. Had this been a gift I would have returned it and just picked it up locally or from another retailer.
The product itself arrived working and in an undamaged condition. It also appeared to be new. That in and of itself is amazing given that it was shipped in a padded envelope. I used it to activate and listen to my radio for a couple hours. Product is bulk-packed that means bagged instead of in a retail box and was well-packed for shipping.
Arrived days early, too.
The price from Satellite Radio Superstore was good. I'd have given this product 5 stars but for one thing: SiriusXM should really come up with a better design for the docking port for their products. The current design with the isolated, narrow power pin is far more likely to be damaged than should have been acceptable. I recently subscribed to SiriusXM but my radio came with the car dock kit only. I needed the home dock kit because I use it mostly on my big sound system.
Only thing is the remote needs a new battery. This kit works with a number of Onyx models! Looked at other home kits, this one is best. Can hook any speaker in with a head phone jack. I use a powered computer speaker system at home. And a battery powered portable speaker when traveling. Plugs in headphone style jack. If you have a portable Sirius raido this is a must have works slick, but you are going to need a pair of speakers or a Stereo that you can pluck into in order to listen to you music.
Bought it as a Christmas gift for my husband and had to open it early! Antenna is long enough to run through the wall and to a window for good reception. Wouldn't pick up signal from inside the house.
