Our take on the SIRIUS Echo SIR-WRS1

by Matt Holliday

Want to listen to SIRIUS in certain rooms of your house, but can't get a good signal? The Echo Repeater System makes it easier to get clear SIRIUS Satellite Radio reception anywhere in your home, without having to run extra wires. The wireless system includes a transmitter and receiver module. The Echo transmitter works with your radio's home antenna — simply place the antenna where it can receive the strongest signal and connect it to the transmitter. The transmitter then beams the signal to the Echo receiver module, which you connect to your SIRIUS plug-and-play or home radio. You can also purchase extra Echo receiver modules if you have more than one SIRIUS radio in your home (see "Accessories").

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Love this. It works great since I work in a cube farm with no windows. I put the anntene and transmitter in my bosses office and the receiver with a home dock attached to speakers in my cube. Get a great signal and love it. I want another set-up for my house, but waiting to get some money together.

This item is a Life Saver!!!!

Written By Daniel, Queens, NY on Wednesday, November 26, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This item is GREAT!!!! I live in a brick house and reception was non exisitent. I was at my wits end. A very helpful Crutchfield rep recommended the Echo repeater. What a life saver. It is so small yet it packs a powerful punch. I now get 3 full bars of signal on my sirius player. This is a must have for your satellite system. Worth every penny!

Great Device

Written By T, Tacoma, WA on Wednesday, June 04, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This thing works great! We can now take our portable radio all around the
house ( the basement and even in the yard). I had to make a tray to
easily carry all the pieces (radio, echo receiver, and Sirius radio) but it is the
best solution I could come up with. I bought a C. Crane FM transmitter
(sorry, that was not a Crutchfield purchase) but that signal was not much
stronger then the built in transmitter with the Sirius radio unit. We listen
mostly to talk radio so I don't have a good feel for music quality through
the echo.

On-Line shopper

We really love our Sirius Satellite wireless receiver. We like to move the radio around in the house so the freedome of location is great. Have not had the chance yet to test its length of receiption but so far, can't notice the difference between hard-wired and wireless.

Excellent Range, Sound Quality and Easy Setup

Written By Scott, Pensacola, FL on Friday, August 03, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I connected this device to a cable TV outlet shared with my TV, using the SIRIUS 14250 CATV Distribution Kit (Outdoor Antenna). I can receive full strength Sirius signal wirelessly throughout my home without any degradation of TV picture quality. The setup, range and sound quality are beyond my expectations. You can also add more Sirius radios to your home with additional Sirius Signal Repeater Receiver Modules. This is the answer for adding satellite radio to your home without running new wires through the walls! I couldn't be happier with the results.
