Denon 4308ci & XM Radio - 03/11/10 09:49 AM

I am a little confused on the XM capabilities of the receiver, can you get a small module to plug in the back for XM connectivity or do you have to use the whole docking station/radio to use XM with it? I have a Express R unit that used to be in my car then I upgraded my stereo and bought an XM module to make the service work through the head unit, can I get something like this for the Denon?

With so much free internet music why bother with XM on the 4308? ;\)


This what it says in my 3808 manual I would imagine the 4308 is the same:

"The AVR-3808CI is an XM Ready® receiver. You can receive XM®
Satellite Radio by connecting to the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock
(includes home antenna, each sold separately) and subscribing to the
XM service.
• Plug the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock into the XM connector on
the rear panel.
• Position the Home Dock antenna near a south-facing window to
receive the best signal.
For details, see “Listening to XM Satellite Radio Programs” (vpage
49, 50).
When making connections, also refer to the operating instructions of
the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock"

I had XM for 4 years after it became available here in Canada. I terminated my sub. since the quality of the sound and service went steadily downhill. I currently listen to my ipod in my car and the sound quality is a LOT better and I can listen to what I want to. XM would have to pay me to get their service now.
IMO
