Our take on the XM XHD2H1 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Enjoy the rich variety of music, news, sports, and talk programming that XM Radio can offer through your home audio/video system. It's possible with the XM Direct 2 Home Tuner and an XM-Ready home audio system. And you can use your XM-Ready system's remote to navigate through the tuner's menu.
Just connect the Home Tuner to your receiver's XM jack. Then position the included antenna to receive the satellite signal. The antenna is waterproof, so you can mount it outside your home if necessary.
Note: A subscription to XM is also required — learn about XM's programming. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories.
Our new car came with Sirius xm and we love it. Found out my 5 year old Yamaha receiver was xm ready so I ordered this. Easy install/setup outstanding quality sound AND a $50 rebate. Like I said, love it!
