Our take on the SiriusXM Onyx Plus

by Jon Paulette
SiriusXM

Bring it all back home

The Onyx Plus Dock & Play satellite radio brings you SiriusXM programming in a compact, portable package that comes with everything you need to listen to your favorite channels in your den or at your desk. The package includes a docking cradle for connecting to your home stereo, an antenna for picking up the satellite radio signal, and a miniplug-to-RCA audio cable. You also get a handy remote that lets you control the action.

Everything about the Onyx Plus is designed to help you get the most out of your satellite radio subscription. From the big control knob to the vivid color display to the high-tech features, it's all about making your favorite SiriusXM programming even more enjoyable. The Onyx Plus also gives you even more programming, with available access to SiriusXM Xtra, which gives you 20 additional music, sports, and entertainment channels, plus SiriusXM Latino, a collection of Spanish language channels.

Check out the awesome channel selection from SIRIUS/XM

What you like, the way you like it

You can view program and channel information on the color display, along with great graphics like channel logos and album art. With TuneStart, you can start a song from the beginning; while TuneMix lets you combine your favorite channels into a music channel that's uniquely yours. If you missed something (or simply want to hear it again), you can pause, rewind, and replay on your favorite channels for up to 30 minutes. You can also use TuneScan™ to scan and select songs you've already played on your favorite channels.

If you're switching back between two shows (music and a sporting event, for example), you can use the One-Touch Jump™ feature to jump back to the previous channel. If you're a sports fan, you'll never miss a score with the Sports Ticker. And you can always access weather and traffic for the city of your choice with the press of a button.

Note: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service available in Alaska and Puerto Rico.

Great Little Receiver

Written By Jerry, Denver, CO on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works great with the home doc in the mountains. It provides plenty of radio selections where there isn't anything else to listen to.
Pros:
Works well, Channel hopping (T-Mix) feature is great
Cons:
Display is pretty small, it's hard to see the channel name or album art. Antenna needs to be outside, doesn't work thru a window.

SiriusXM Onyx Plus

Written By Helmutf, Staunton, VA on Sunday, July 06, 2014
 
Recently I looked for a replacement of my Stiletto 2, which I owned for several years. After looking at available options I decided to chose the Onyx Plus. I like the Onyx better than the Stiletto 2 since it is easier to operate (without reading the manual), has a nice color display and clear button layout. I do miss, however, the recording capability of the Stiletto (practically unlimited time, the longest I recorded was 14 hrs due to a programming mistake) since I can't always listen when the "good stuff" is on.

I bought it from Crutchfield since I needed advice after looking at many radios on the internet. As always, got excellent advice. I highly recommend this player.
Pros:
Nice color display. Very good button layout. Operation by intuition easy (we engineers don't like to read manuals).
Cons:
No recording capability (apparently, none of the new radios have it).

Best XM Radio

Written By BWK, Fort Myers, FL on Friday, May 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have been listening to XM since its beginning and have owned many radios over the years. This is by far the most impressive unit that I have used. The best feature is that it will automatically beginning recording up to 18 of your favorite channels as soon as it is powered on. The manual says that it records about the past 45 minutes, but it seems closer to an hours worth. The screen is very bright and clear and the UI is easy to understand. As long as you have a clear shot of the southern sky, this radio is a winner.
Pros:
Channel recording, screen display, remote, extra XM channels, many more.
Cons:
None.

Will the SIRIUSXM Onyx Plus fit seamlessly, with no problem into the auto docking station I have already installed for my SIRIUSXM Onyx EZ? [ M  May 01, 2014 ]

  • For details on fit please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to give you the details if this will fit. [ Krissy Staff  May 02, 2014 ]
Does this unit put out stereo to my amplifier, or is it mono coming from one mini output jack to two RCA input jacks? [ roguemodel  Apr 04, 2014 ]
2 answers
  • To my ears it is stereo. It is hooked up to an integrated stereo amp with a pair of B&W speakers and I can tell left channel and right channel sounds. Not mono. [ HARVEY   Apr 05, 2014 ]
  • It has a right and left connection so I assume it iiis stereo. [ MICHAEL   Apr 05, 2014 ]
