Polk Audio introduced today a standalone component tuner for lovers of Sirius Satellite Radio. The new SR-H1000 is priced at around $350 and should be available now.
The Polk SR-H1000 is designed to fit easily into one’s existing audio component system. It can store up to 44 minutes of Sirius audio for later playback, lets you display channel and song information on an external monitor and offers optical digital output so sound quality can be at its best. There’s also an on-board digital to analog converter to assist in better sound performance.
This isn’t the first time Polk has done a standalone satellite device – a few years back it did one for XM as well. It will be interesting to see how this sells since many people like to have their satellite radio service bundled into something like their cars.
