Summary: I purchased this radio only because I wanted to get the new Art Bell show on SiriusXM. Excellent quality radio and so happy to hear Mr. Bell back on "extra-terrestial radio" (along with Sirius' other excellent stations.) Had one small glitch, in which the radio wanted to "load" forever, but an easy fix by simply unplugging for about 10 seconds and plugging back in. I'm a real radio fan and super happy with this purchase.
Summary: I bought this because I didn't want to tie up my phone and tablet just to listen to music. The interface on this unit is surprisingly clunky, especially in this day and age. User name and password are entered by using the tune knob, which you turn to select characters on an LED screen and then push the knob to select them. In turning the knobs I often overshoot what I'm trying to get to, or I'm turning it faster than it can keep up. Slow going.
Summary: I have always loved having satellite radio in my truck, now I can enjoy it at home too. The radio has OK speakers, but I was pleased to find that it has a "line out" connection in the back allowing it to be integrated into your home theater system. It is also nice that you can just add "internet radio" to your account, which only raises your bill a few dollars a month. Adding a traditional satellite radio to your account for the home is much more expensive.
Awesome Sound Advice - SiriusXM via Wi-Fi (with active online account)

Summary: UPDATED - December 20, 2012 Ok... I've just discovered how to make this XP radio AWESOME with sound fidelity. First, know that this box has mediocre speakers that just are Okay....There is NO WAY AROUND THAT FACT (Sorry XM... it's true). SO....IF you have really good COMPUTER SPEAKERS, you can port the sound from the radio to the speakers. THE SOUND IS AWESOME!!! I'm not kidding...
Summary: The radio is very inconsistent in operation. We have a great WiFi signal and yet the radio goes off and on at least 1 time an hour. It is not easy to setup. I like the idea of having it in the house, but wish you had a better product or would exchange this unit for another that might be more consistent.
Summary: The TTR shipped quickly through Amazon, and it was a breeze to set up. I had to go online and add the radio to the account that I had through the satellite radio in my car. That wasn't too hard at all. But the radio stopped working about two weeks after I got it. I called Sirius, and what terrible customer service they have. It takes three transfers to get to the right department. I got cut off once and had to start all over again.
Summary: This is a GREAT sounding radio and it is on everyday in my home. I have had it 18 months and one time I lost connection. Called cust support and performed a factory reset re entered the settings and perfect. That does not seem like a lot of trouble. IT IS AN INTERNET RADIO. I never use regular radio now; always this radio. The entire family loves it. I bough one for my parents and they listen to it all the time also. FANTASTIC.
Summary: I have been reading reviews for about 30+ days on Amazon of the good and bad of this product. I finally decided to purchase this, despite the reviews that weren't so favorable, and I am SO glad I did! The radio is a little large, but it fits the stand in my kitchen perfectly and the reception has been excellent! I have it connected to Logitech speakers and a sub woofer and the sound is amazing!
Summary: The radio came with all the instuctions I needed to get this baby going. The remote is very easy to use. I have AT&T uverse with router. All I had to do was give my account info and key # thats on the gateway (router).I had instant music.I had to acuire internet music from at&t which is not expensive (about $7.00). The sound is incredible and just easy to use. Here's the bad part. The radio has a tendicy to not pick up a signal and won't respond.
Summary: The TTR-1 is an excellent way to access the on-line channels of Sirius XM. Super-easy to set up and link to one's browser. Easy to operate. Good sound quality. An excellent way to access Sirius XM around the house, by locating one or several of these radios strategically. I wish it had a handle on top, to make it easier to carry around. In general, a very good product. I highly recommend it.
