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.
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.
