SIRIUS XM Buyers Guide
SIRIUS Radio Buyer's Guide
Over the years, we have been asked this question thousands of times by many of our customers: "
Which Sirius Radio receiver is right for me?"
With so many different choices of receivers, we understand why people ask us that question. A few months ago, our staff was encouraged to write a Sirius Satellite Radio Buyer's Guide that would help customers understand the different types of receivers and assist them with the buying decision. It is our sincere hope that after you read this buyer's guide you will be more informed and better prepared when purchasing your Sirius Radio receiver, and that you will feel confident that you made the right decision.
How SIRIUS Satellite Radio Works
Satellite radio is one of the greatest inventions of our time. It utilizes many facets of technology to bring us the crystal clear variety that so many of us love. The following image depicts how the signal is transmitted and sent down to radios all across the country. Sirius Radio compiles content in its studios
then broadcasts a signal up to satellites above the earth, which orbit in a figure-8 over North and South America, crossing over Minnesota. Those satellites transmit the signal down to earth and it is picked up by
Sirius Radio antennas
Sirius Radio receivers
. Those receivers decode the signal and connect to external radios such as car stereos, home theaters or other amplified sound systems. Some home theater amplifiers come with Sirius Radio hardware built-in so all that is needed in a special receiver and home kit and you can play Sirius Radio through your home theater for superior sound quality.
