Product Overview: The STB2
portable satellite radio boombox is designed to interface with the SIRIUS ST-2 Staramate
Replay plug-and-play tuner. The boombox gives the plug-and-play receiver portability, allowing you
to play the unit virtually anywhere. An auxiliary input lets you connect
additional components. For the system to work, you'll need a subscription to
SIRIUS Satellite Radio in addition to the tuner.
SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS
Satellite Radio features more than 125 streams of original programming beamed
coast-to-coast, including 67 streams of commercial-free digital-quality music,
plus news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming.
Note: Satellite radio
service is available only within the contiguous United States. Service
is not available in Alaska and Hawaii.
Power Options: The boombox can
be operated on household AC current when the supplied AC adapter is used. The
unit can also operate using 8 "D" batteries, allowing you to take it with you
wherever you go. The batteries are automatically bypassed whenever the AC
adapter is plugged into the unit.
Antenna: The unit comes with a
SIRIUS satellite antenna with a 16' 4" cable. The antenna cable has a single SMB
connector. You must place the antenna in a location that has a relatively clear
view of the SIRIUS satellite paths. For convenience, the antenna can be mounted
to the 4 pegs on the back of the unit. The antenna has the following dimensions:
Width=2.63", Height=1.341" (3.659" with antenna raised), Depth=3.236".
Note: SIRIUS has three
satellites and antenna placement will depend upon where you live in the contiguous
Inputs/Outputs: In addition to
the inputs for the receiver, the DC power supply, and the antenna, the boombox has
one mini-jack auxiliary input for plugging in an external audio device. For
private listening, you can use the front-mounted headphone jack (3.5mm mini-jack)
for plugging in a set of stereo headphones. When headphones are plugged in, the
unit's speakers are muted.
Power Output: 5 watts RMS
The handle slides up from the top of the unit for easy portability.
