From Sirius: Portable Radio
Item # 220SXIBH1 | MFR # SXiBH1
This item is no longer available.
This home kit includes everything you need to play your SiriusXM Lynx portable satellite radio through your home stereo: a Bluetooth® enabled desktop cradle, an audio cable, a home power adapter, wireless remote, and a weatherproof antenna. Connect the cradle to your home stereo system with the audio cable, position the antenna for prime reception, and plug the power adapter into a standard wall outlet.
Bluetooth gives you freedom of movement
Since the dock features built-in Bluetooth, the Lynx can still stream SiriusXM Internet Radio from across the room when it's out of the dock. You won't have to keep the Lynx docked if you want to browse channels, pause your program, or switch to a new channel — just grab it, sit down, and relax. For simpler adjustments, you can use the included remote control. The SiriusXM Lynx radio is sold separately.

I love my Lynx SiriusXM radio while on the road.. which is most of my time. But, just nabbed the 'home kit' for 20 bux and now I can enjoy Art Bell during the night, or Dave Ramsey or my biz channels.. and tons of great music.. right at home, in my bed. Fortunately, my bedroom on the 2nd floor faces south.. it was a quick, easy setup, sitting the antenna on the double-hung ledge, plugging in power, my headset... and BAM! I have satellite! So easy! Kinda wish that the 'home kit' would connect via wifi to my computer so I could pump thru those speakers. But, I have plug-ins available too!
Pros: Fast, easy set-up! No fuss, no muss!
Cons: home kit should connect via wifi to other wifi devices, like wifi speakers or computer or headset.
I previously had a Starmate2, which had a very lame, ugly metal holder for the radio. This is sleek and works very well. I'm not sure I see the point of having bluetooth on the dock, as the radio itself needs good speakers for good sound. Not much else to say about a home dock. The remote is pretty basic. At least it has a mute button. I also bought the boombox for portability. I highly recommend getting that. This and the Lynx radio were my first purchases with Crutchfield, and I have to say I'm very impressed with the ease of ordering online, the price, speedy delivery and packaging. I will definitely purchase from Crutchfield again. I had great confidence in ordering from them after reading other reviews about their customer service and guarantees.
Pros: sleek and beautiful
This is the best thing that I have purchased in the last 5 years no I can listen to Satellite radio at home. This is the best thing since peanut butter was invented and better than mom's homemade apple pie.
Pros: I can listen to Satellite radio at home once I am out of my car.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Good price and conveniently packaged...easily understood directions
I initially had a problem getting the bluetooth connected but it I've had no problems with it after that.
Pros: Works great once connected
Cons: Had a little difficulty getting the bluetooth connected but no problems with it now.
Easy setup, does everything I wanted
Pros: Easy setup.
Cons: None yet.
It's ok, but not as good as my Satalite XM.
Pros: Small size.
Cons: Keeps shutting down.
Awesome piece of equipment, reasonably priced.
Pros: Small enough to place anywhere.
Cons: Must use your own speakers.
I read some reviews that complained about the sound quality when you run through bluetooth. It is better if you don't use the bluetooth an instead you just run it through the headphone jack on your radio. All in all it works as described and lets you listen to satellite radio.
Pros: Easy to set-up (if you can find a signal), and it is pretty cheap.
Cons: I wish it had a better remote control, they do not seem to make a universal remote for it, but it would be nice if it had valume control. I have mine running directly to speakers and not into a radio or receiver so there is no remote other than the one for this system. That is a minor quibble though and if you have yours set up to something with a remote it probably won't be an issue.
Both products I ordered work great and I received quicker than expected. I had never been more satisfied. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Both products work as described.
Cons: No cons for me
easy to set up but the antenna concept is a joke
Pros: easy to get it going -- IF you have a SOUTH FACING WINDOW
Cons: given the state of technology the antenna is a joke - re-engineer it by modern standards, not the 1960s
Easy to set up
What a Great setup. easy install and well thought out. Great product.
Plug and Play setup. Had it up and running within minutes. Only annoying thing is the super bright Bluetooth LED light on the side of the docking station. Ended up by puting a piece of black tape over the LED.
Pros: Super Easy Setup
Cons: Annoying super bright Bluetooth LED light.
Easy to set up...remote control is great...THANKS CRUTCHFIELD
Pros: REMOTE CONTROL...enables LYNX to perform !
