With the Delphi XM SKYFi Boombox (model SA10001), you can take the XM satellite radio network with you wherever you roam--from the beach to a party and back home where you can use it as a bookshelf system. Just insert the Delphi XM SKYFi radio receiver (model SA10000) into the Boombox dock, and you're ready to go.
|The SKYFi radio receiver inserts neatly into the SKYFi Boombox for satellite radio wherever you want to take it. |
Note that the SKYFi radio receiver is available separately and requires a monthly subscription.
The convenient, portable SKYFi Boombox offers great sound with dual-cone stereo speakers (also referred to as full-range speakers), featuring a great range of lows and highs. The SKYFi Boombox is powered by a 12-volt AC adapter (included) or six D batteries.
You'll get a clear XM reception with the included high-gain antenna, which transmits the radio signal to a highly focused area. The 20-foot cable can be easily positioned for optimal reception, from sitting on a tabletop to mounting on a wall. It is recommended that the antenna be positioned near a south-facing window or outdoors with a clear view of the southeastern sky in order to receive the satellite signal. In some cases, it will be possible to receive XM's signal through standard home walls or a roof. When you're on the go with the SKYFi Boombox, the antenna attaches conveniently to the back of the Boombox.
Other features include:
- Headphone mini-jack
- Integrated carrying handle
- Volume control (treble and bass settings controlled by XM SKYFi radio receiver)
