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)

What Is XM Satellite Radio?
XM Satellite Radio was the first satellite radio service to be offered in the U.S. It features a state-of-the-art broadcast center in Washington, D.C., two Boeing 702 satellites (providing 18 kW of power--the most powerful commercial satellites ever built), and approximately 800 terrestrial repeaters located throughout the continental United States for seamless transmission. Service is not available in Hawaii or Alaska.

XM Satellite Radio offers 101 channels, including 70 music channels, over 35 of which are commercial-free, and 31 news, sports, talk, and children's channels, broadcast coast to coast in digital quality. Basic service is available for a monthly subscription fee of $9.99, with premium channel(s) available at an additional monthly cost. Under the XM Family plan, subscribers get a discounted rate of $6.99 per month for additional radios.

XM's programming partners include Sesame Workshop, NASCAR, Associated Press, ABC News, CNBC, CNET, BBC World Service and BBC Concerts, Radio One, CNN/Sports Illustrated, Hispanic Broadcast Corporation, Disney, and ESPN.

Sound quality is great.
Conner
The reception of the XM signal has been quite good, even when I listen to it in my office cubicle, far from any windows.
T. Williams
The noise isn't noticeable if the volume level is set above 6 or so, and if the boombox is placed a few feet from you.

Okay, the boombox doesn't offer sound quality as good as that of a good home stereo system. That's not the point; it allows you to take the XM programming with you, where ever you go, and frankly, no other satellite product does that.
As to other reviewers' remarks about "digital artifacts" -- that's utter nonsense -- any such "artificats" certainly do not orginate with the boom box. I have the Sky Fi connected to my high-end stereo and the sound quality is superb -- not quite as good as CDs, but better than any other media. When I move the SkyFi unit to my boombox, I expect to get boombox quality sound, NOT home-stereo quality.
If I have a complaint it is that the antenna is a pain because it attaches to the back. It would be better placed on the top so the boombox would be able to receive signal regardless of orientation. This isn't a real problem, just a minor annoyance.
Delphi has done a great job of creating a true portable system -- car, home, and on the go -- and the boombox is an essential element of it.

As others have noted:

PROS:

Decent sound, long antenna cord (20'), compact design, clean aesthetics.

CONS:

Flimsy volume control, antenna can't be attached without removing the battery compartment cover, and VERY ANNOYING high pitched hum that makes you think you're listening to AM radio. Unless you are willing to put up with this and need the portability, you're better off buying a home adpater and running the receiver through your home audio setup.

Delphi must have made an attempt to improve this model. Neither unit I bought had the high-pitched noise described by previous Amazon reviewers. But both units I received do have an AC hum when using the power adapter, and both have another noise -- a repetitive, low-level clicking sound.

The noise isn't noticeable if the volume level is set above 6 or so, and if the boombox is placed a few feet from you. But if you listen at low volume with the unit close by, you might find the incessant click-click-click quite annoying. Classical music fans may find this unit completely unacceptable. At low volume during the quieter passages of classical music (XM channels 110, 112, and 113), the clicking sound actually breaks up the audio.

I unplugged all wireless devices in the house (they supposedly can cause interference with satellite radios), but that didn't solve the problem, even with the units placed well apart in different parts of the house. I suspect the clicking has more to do with the refreshing of the SkyFi 2 receiver's digital display than it does any external interference -- it does appear synchronized with the scrolling display when you have it set to scroll.

I understand the SkyFi 2 receiver is not to blame, and that the receiver works well with other home or car audio kits. So, apparently, it's the Delphi boombox.

And there's another overall audio weakness in the product. In spite of the sales talk about the beefy, dual-cone speakers, the units sound like cheapo drugstore boomboxes. Actually, they sound less like boomboxes and more like "woof" boxes. Besides bass being practically nonexistent, harmonics in the plastic cases (sometimes called "case resonance") create a lot of cheap-sounding, mid-range woofiness.

I bought my first XM 3-4 months ago and love it. I enjoy having the cable news at my finger tips and endless static free music where ever I go. The first thing I noticed was that all the chatter from the local radio adds and DJs was gone. Ahhh! what a relief. My only frustration was that I couldn't take this format with me; my old boombox was burdened with the same old adds and limited format. I'm thrilled Delphi has brought this out; I the tunner, car kit and boom box yesterday. My Sony, though very good is going to ebay. I've traded up.
Delphi has solved the problem with a product that is very well engineered. The sound of this boom box is very full. The tunner is great; love the all the display info and options. The satellite antenna wire stores inside the base (in case you don't need to run it to a window .. which I haven't had to do yet .. maybe when we go out of town).
I'm very pleased.

Boombox is nice, light weight, easy to move around. We got an antenna error and discovered (after much frustration and no help from Delphi or other merchants) that you must have the batteries in the unit even when using the plug for power. This eliminated our antenna error. But once that problem was solved, we love the unit!

This thing is a HUGE dissapointment. There is an awful high pitched tone that you can hear behind the music. The only way to avoid it is to turn up the music so loud that it drowns the buzz out. If you listen to classical or jazz forget about this boombox. If you don't like listening to your music super loud forget about this boombox. It will drive you crazy. Listening to talk on this is awful. The buzzing will drive you crazy. It is like listening to a distant am station. I can't believe this thing is being sold on the market. It needs to be recalled and the problem needs to be fixed. Many people have had problems with this box and Delphi refuses to acknowledge the problem even though they know about it and have received many complaints. Don't buy this boombox. It is a waste of time and money.
