XM's Onyx EZ Dock & Play satellite radio gives you everything SiriusXM has to offer in a compact, portable package that's ideal for your home or office. This kit comes with everything you need to bring your favorite SiriusXM programming to your den or desk.
The Onyx EZ features an easy-to-read blue display that lets you view artist name, song or program title, and channel information all at the same time. You can keep your favorites handy by storing up to 10 channels for one-touch access. Plus, the handy One-Touch Jump™ button lets you switch back to the last channel you were listening to, and check out traffic and weather information.
The package includes a docking cradle for connecting to your home stereo, an antenna for picking up the XM signal, and a miniplug-to-RCA audio cable. XM also includes a handy remote that lets you control the action.
Note: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Some channels not available in all packages. 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.

Perfect for what I wanted. Easy to use.
Pros: easy to install, small, works great
Checked Crutchfield owing to a prior purchase which required customer service, which was excellent and quick. The Onyx display is easy to read, presets were a snap, and setup was quick. Had complete trust that, had anything been amiss, Crutchfield would have resolved the issue with speed and satisfaction.
Worked great and was an excellent price.
Just purchased the Onyx to replace my old one that was not turning on properly. Your cyber pricing was hard not to pass up. It took just 2 days and with free shipping what a deal.I found out that the power chord was defective on the old unit and now old works great with new units chord. I will keep the new unit as a spare and the remote of the new unit works with old as well. Crutchfield price and free shipping will make me a repeat customer. Thanks
Pros: Price, shipping nice little unit
Cons: XM radio pricing
I purchased this item by phone order. I have nothing but praise for the young lady that helped me. The XM Onyx works fine, but lacks many features of the receiver it replaced. The Onyx does not have a sleep function where it can be set to turn off at different time intervals. It also a previous channel button and also a function that reduces the brightness of the screen after a certain set time. I do have a problem with SiriusXM. I have several XM and Sirius receivers that have lifetime subscriptions. I am now told that I will loose the life time subscription after 3 transfers. I had to pay $82 dollars for the transfer. That was more than I paid for the new receiver. You think that after being an Sirius and XM customer for 20 years with 4 lifetime subscriptions, I would be a valued customer. Guess again. I do not blame Crutchfield for any of these. I have purchase several things from them over the years and they have treated me great.
Pros: Picks up the XM channels okay
Cons: Lacks many features that my older unit had.
Great little unit for the price hooked real nice and easy shipped fast
Pros: Easy hookup
Easy to set up. Everything included to set up and to use a verity of speakers. Good price compared to other retailers.
Pros: Easy to use... good remote
Cons: need to put antenna in southern exposure but that is nature of satellite radio.
Worked great and has a large display that is easy on the eyes. I would recommend this to anyone
Why did I wait so long to get this? I'm enjoying it so much I got a second home kit for work and travel... Even got one for the wife...!!!
Pros: Constant great music where ever you go...
Easy to set up. Works great.
For years, my wife had Sirius XM in her car and it was perfect for long trips. We also found it a solution to the somewhat spotty radio reception available in our part of Maine. I recently sold her car and was now without Sirius XM radio.I'm a big fan of the 60's (60's on 6)and 70's music, so when I was looking for a replacement radio, the XM Onyx EZ presented the perfect solution. I now have my favorite stations available in my home. I paired this with the SiriusXM SXDV3 Car Kit so I have the best of both worlds. The radio as well as the auto adapter were very easy to install and activate
Pros: Very easy to install and activate
Perfect, could not get a signal inside of the house, but, that was outlined in the instructions. Receiver placed outside of window, picks up signal with no problem. Hint, if needed, use compas on smart phone to figure out where to point antenna, this was also outlined in the instructions. Great product, great company. Definitely worth it if you love music in the home.
This Tuner works great and provides clear reception sounf
Pros: Easy to set up.
Cons: Directions are some what confusing. First it says to point Antenna to the South, but later on it shows a USA Map that tells us in Ga. (and elsewhere) to pont Antenna to th e North/Northwest
Sends great sound to my audio system
Pros: 10 memory buttons, easy control navigation, easy to read screen.
Cons: Does not record songs.
I got this to use in a kitchen location where I would not be able to easily access a normal XM unit. So, like the remote control aspect. I also use it with a Delphi repeater unit because the antenna would not work in my kitchen. I like it. Nothing special, but it does the job.
Very nice product!! Great price!!
easy to install, well worth the money
small tiny buttons
Cons: still have not received my rebates
Have not tried it yet, so I wil let you know more later
this is a great product.i bought the home kit and the car kit.use the home kit at work,getting the signal dialed in at work was a little tricky,but finally got it.hook up was a breeze.would highly recomend this deal.
Pros: price,quality of product,ease of use.
Cons: havent found any yet.
I like the XM Onyx because it's easy to use and it's portable. Set up was easy. Programing was easy. It can be used on any sound system with an auxiliary input. Also if your worried about the price of XM radio, they have a music only package. It's about half the price. Bill
Pros: Over all easy to use. And the Crutchfield team was a great help when answering my questions.
I have been wanting to hook up Sirrus XM in the house for a while. I finally did it. I love it. Great little receiver with a remote. Everything hooked up quick and Sirrus XM activation was a breeze. Thanks Crutchfield
Pros: easy connections
I was told that this radio would play all of the Sirius channels...it does not. If you want to listen to Howard Stern do not buy this radio.
Cons: No Sirius channels
EASY TO USE GOOD VALUE
Pros: EZ TO USE. LOTS OF VERSITILITY
Well made and easy to use.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Kenny Feb 17, 2017 ] Staff
MY BET IS THAT YOU WILL NEED TO CONNECT TO AN EXTERNAL WEATHERPROOF ANTENNA. THESE ARE FAIRLY INEXPENSIVE. THAT WILL CONNECT TO THE BOX VIA COAX CABLE. THE ANTENNA WILL NEED TO FACE A SOUTHERLY DIRECTION, AT LEAST IN MY AREA ON THE LEFT COAST. [ Douglas Aug 19, 2016 ]
Yes unless of course you can extend the antenna to an outside window or outside oriented to the proper compass direction for your srea. I believe you can find your proper direction from SiriusXm website [ Carmine Di Aug 19, 2016 ]
No, the output is either via 1/8" cable or FM channel, which then goes into an FM tuner. No Bluetooth out on mine, so not aware of that possibility. [ Tim Dec 09, 2015 ]

yes it plays all in my package 140 stations [ kenneth Jan 28, 2014 ]
THEY ARE THE SAME. YOU WILL HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE OF COURSE. YOU'LL GET A MULTI UNIT DISCOUNT. [ ANDREW Jan 28, 2014 ]
It depends on your SXM plan, because you will need to purchase a new plan for this new radio and its ID number. You can get an add-on radio plan, in which case, it will get the same channels you currently get in your car. You can also get a new separate plan for this radio, and get fewer, or more stations, depending on the plan you already have and the new plan. You can go to the SiriusXM web site, check out their channel list, and get any channel on that list, other than the ones marked as "Internet Only". It would depend on the new plan you get, because several stations require a premium subscription, and a couple of dozen are only available via the Internet Listening service. [ JAMES Jan 28, 2014 ]
Good Morning Phil As far as I can tell it plays all the channels my car radio plays. I love having this in the house. [ DAVID B Jan 28, 2014 ]

They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. They will also be able to give the run down of the radios that will be a good fit your vehicle. [ Jeff Dec 31, 2013 ] Staff
NO. BOTH ARE COVERED WITH SAME APPLICCATIONFOR SERVICE. RON [ RONALD Dec 14, 2013 ]
Larry I bought The home kit including the portable speaker dock. Let me say it is a great speaker dock, been waiting for something like this for a while now. As far as a subscription goes, I paid 199.00 a year which averages out to 55 cents a day. It covers your car, computer, i phone and home. Not a bad deal. I remember going to a local store to purchase sirius xm from them, and was offered a puny little radio which wasn't even in stereo. Crutchfield really outdid themselves on this one. Well I hope this answered your ?. [ HECTOR M Dec 14, 2013 ]
I am pretty sure you need a separate subscription FOR EACH RADIO. If you had a portable unit in the car, you could disconnect it and take it into the house and that would be a single subscription, but with two separate units, it's two subscriptions. Your second subscription will cost less, however. I have 3 car units in 3 cars and one at my office. I will be buying another subsription for the home unit I bought. [ THOMAS L Dec 14, 2013 ]
yes, its flexable and adaptes well,i have a yamaha pre amp and the system sounds very good. ken [ KENNITH Dec 14, 2013 ]
