Blaupunkt America SR04 (Sirius)


This "aggressively sized" radio measures just 4.75 inches wide, 3.2 inches high, and 1.2 inches deep, and while that's plenty small, it's not quite as compact as XM's Roady2 or SkyFi2 units. Thanks to its glossy black finish and brilliant blue LCD, we...

Ultracompact Sirius satellite radio receiver; high-gloss black finish and deep-blue display look cool; wireless FM transmitter.

The controls' ergonomics take getting used to.

The renowned German radio manufacturer's first Sirius satellite radio, the Blaupunkt America SR04 looks and sounds cool but suffers from a few operational quirks.

"Great Bang for your buck!"


Overall, I love the unit! At first I put a Sportster in my wife's car and she loved the music and liked that illumination and brushed metal matched the car's interior. But that's where it stopped. I relly liked the SR04 and the Blaupunkt monicker was a...

Great night time display, sleek loocks, user interface very intuitive, very functional and well designed remote.

Day time display does not serve the driver well. contrast and sun-light do not bode well. A little on te fragile side.

"Nice....But a few problems"


I have had this unit for 4 months now and at first everything was working well. But now the unit gets very hot after being on for only 45min. And when that happens the display turn pure blue. Can't read anything at all. The sound quality is good,...

Display Problems


Consumer review by:

"Fix the display contrast and we may have something."


A little pricy for something that doesn't have all of the bugs worked out yet.

Large display, easy to navigate, nice design and easy setup.

Contrast level changes on it's own making it unable to read. It also has poor reception using the FM modulator.

""Excellent radio but a few bugs to work out""


This is the best looking portable radio on the market for the money. Easy to use and good quality.

After 3 weeks of use, the FM transmitter died. The release button is located directly behind display so before removing the receiver from the cradle, be careful not to press on the display or damage could result.

"Car reception is the pits!!"


Great looking unit with awesome display!

FM transmitter is pitiful, controls are slow to respond, signal cuts in and out periodically.

"Looks pretty but.... terrible reception"


Drove from Washington to California & receive adequate reception 20% of time. The unit also runs extremely hot. I bought the home units & ran the antenna outside with the same results.

""Great Receiver - but it has some bugs""


Great looking receiver and easy to navigate through menu. Good features.

FM modulator quit working after 3 weeks. Brightness setting will not hold in memory. Release button is located directly behind display, be careful not to squeeze on the display when removing receiver from cradle. Runs hot.

"Best Looking Sirius receiver"


Absolutely beautiful blue backlight. Large 6 Line display. Compact size for its large display. Comes with an extra FM modulator antenna to boost wireless signal.

Dropouts every now & then which is a byproduct of the sirius service. Currently they do not have enough repeaters activated.

"Reception is awful."


Cool design. Compact docking station for car.

FM Modulator is extremely weak. In fact, I needed an additional modulator to boost performance(extra $50). The unit may look cool, but if not looking at it straight on, glare and lack of contrast on the screen make it very difficult to see during day. So
