The newest SiriusXM dock and play radio – the Onyx EZR – is now available for subscribers of the nation’s only satellite radio programmer.
The Onyx EZR features a larger display than its predecessor, the Onyx EZ, with improved resolution and customized background and text options that allow for better viewing in all lighting conditions.
The new receiver also offers a split screen option that enables the user to view what’s on the current channel in one pane, and simultaneously see what’s playing on their other favorite channels in the second pane. Another improvement over the Onyx EZ is the addition of TuneMix, which allows Onyx EZR users to listen to a mix of songs from across several of their favorite channels.
The Onyx EZR delivers subscribers all of SiriusXM’s 150-plus satellite-delivered channels.
“The SiriusXM Onyx EZR is an excellent step up in usability, featuring several new capabilities at an entry-level price,” said Joe Verbrugge, EVP/Emerging Business at SiriusXM. “We’re pleased to offer new and existing subscribers this exciting new radio, which will deliver both SiriusXM’s robust programming lineup and an excellent user experience.”
Other features on the SiriusXM Onyx EZR allow users to:
· Operate the radio while driving by using its ergonomically designed and easily identifiable buttons.
· Browse and preview channels by category.
· Easily connect to a vehicle or home sound system.
· Set parental controls.
· Operate the radio from a distance using a remote control.
Amazon, Best Buy, and Crutchfield are among the national retailers selling the new receiver, which bears a MSRP of $79.99.
The Onyx EZR can be purchased with a vehicle kit or home kit.
