i've got the sporter replay, and love it. im not sure how much it is tho (xmas present). dont waste your money on that S50 thing that came out a month or so ago (even tho you just said you dont want to go over 100). yes its the best model out right now.. but give it time.. itll be as worthless as the first editions of ipods..

heh..actually if you have first edition ipods..especially the discontinued color mini's...hold onto them. They are going to be worth money.

I don't think Sirius or XM is that great unless you spend 8 hours a day in your truck.

I have it, but I drive for a living. Its OK.

i was the same way when i first got it 2 or 3 years ago (whenever it first came out).. i had it for a week or so, didnt think it was worth it, and got rid of it. since then tho, my taste of music has widened a lot, so now more channels apply to my interests.. i also love howerd sterns channel! overall, now, im glad i have it. theres some interesting stuff to be found on it.

if you spend a lot of time in your vehicle it's worth it, i do and don't even listen to broadcast radio anymore.

What kinda radio is in your truck right now? It is stock or aftermarket. Are you looking to take it to a different vehicle as well, listen to it in the house or just in the truck.

I would go with either a sportster replay or a starmate replay. I have the sportster replay and I love it.

If you have an aftermarket sony does it support Sirius??? I would look on Sony.com and check becuase my Pioneer only shows XM ready but I have sirius hardwired to it. I control it all from the actual headunit, the sound qaulity is much better and it was only $100.

Sony only supports XM unless you have an external sirius setup such as the sportster that can plug into the AUX port. I have heard good things about the Sportster Replay also.

John I beg to differ,I wouldn't have asked if it was not available. It all depends on what model he has.
