Audiovox Unveils First Satellite Radio With Split Screen and Replay Functionality

Audiovox Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX) expands its Xpress plug-and-play family with the introduction of two all-new XM plug-and-play radios: the XpressR, which is the first satellite radio device that combines split-screen display, 30-minute replay, and a five-way tuner knob, and the XpressEZ, an entry-level unit with a simplified user interface. These feature-rich units join the Xpress product family and are designed to provide consumers with a variety of unique options for experiencing XM’s 170- plus channels of acclaimed music, sports and entertainment.

“The introduction of the XpressR and XpressEZ supports our commitment to Audiovox’s successful Xpress plug-and-play product family and offers customers a variety of options to select a unit that fits their listening style,” said Audiovox’s Senior Vice President of Sales Tom Malone. “Enhancing the consumers XM listening experience is what drives Audiovox to develop high-quality, first-to-market, and advanced feature-rich devices like the XpressR or entry level units like the XpressEZ.”

The XpressR (XMCK20) is the step-up model featuring the first satellite radio split-screen display that allows the user to view both the current XM channel and five other channels, simultaneously on one screen.

Other features include 30-minute pause and replay, an automatic backlight dimmer that adjusts for day-to-night viewing and a five-way tuner knob to navigate XM’s 170 channels. This unit comes with a car dock, 12-volt power adapter, magnetic roof mount antenna and remote control. The XpressR is available in June. MSRP: $129.99.

The XpressEZ (XMCK5) is the new entry level model with a bright, crisp three-line display and easy-to-navigate encoder knob and offers the option to preset the user’s 10 favorite XM channels. This unit comes with a car dock, 12-volt power adapter and magnetic roof mount antenna. The XpressEZ is available in June. MSRP: $69.99.
