So Orbitcast's sponsors have put together some phenomenal satellite radio deals for the Holiday shopping season. These aren't the lame low-end receivers that we're all accustomed to seeing at super "low" prices. We're talking about the top-of-the-line satellite radios and fan-favorite packages at great prices.
In the interest of full transparency: I just want to point out that they didn't pay anything for this post, but both are sponsors of Orbitcast and they help make sure this site continues to exist (and we're all thankful for that, right?). So if you're in the market for a new satellite radio (or have a satrad in mind on your wishlist) give a gander at these deals and help support those who help make all this possible.
But enough of this palaver, let's get on with the deals!
Pioneer XMP3 (GEX-XMP3)
The "hot" new satellite radio for the season is most definitely the XMP3. What with it's built-in electronic programming guide, 5-channel simultaneous recording capability, on-the-go sleek design and auto-recording functionality; the XMP3 is a veritable swiss army knife for satellite radios.
TSS Radio is offering the XMP3 for $259.99 with a free Leather Portfolio case (the Leather Portfolio case is also available for free on the Stiletto 2 and the Pioneer Inno).
Satellite Radio Superstore is offering the XMP3 for $239.95 after mail-in rebate. Both have the XMP3 in-stock and ready to ship right now.
Sirius Starmate 5 (ST5TK1)
Some would argue that the XMP3 isn't really the "hot" new satellite radio on the market, but instead it's the Sirius Starmate 5. Afterall, the Starmate 5 is the only satellite radio that is A La Carte capable, so you can literally pick-and-choose what channels you want to listen to.
A lot of satellite radio users really like the blue, wide-screen display and the basic design of the Starmate 5 - especially if you don't use it for "on the go" listening.
Oh right, there's one more benefit of the Starmate 5 - it's about half the price of the XMP3. In fact, Satellite Radio Superstore is has the Starmate 5 for just $119.95 and TSS Radio stocks it for only $119.99.
If you're yearning to upgrade your current plug-and-play radio, the Starmate 5 should be on the top of your list.
Delphi SKYFi2 Super Bundle
The SKYFi 2 is hardly a "new" satellite radio, but it sure if one of the most favored XM receivers and has stood the test of time has a dependable and easy-to-use unit.
Satellite Radio Superstore has put together a specially package Delphi SKYFi2 "Super Bundle" (which include the receiver, a car kit, a home kit, PLUS a boombox) all for just $99.95 after rebate. That's pretty much everything you need all in one convenient package.
Sirius Sportster 5
