Audiovox is just one of many well-known electronics manufacturers that have partnered with Sirius satellite radio. In addition to satellite radio receivers for Sirius, Audiovox makes CD players, cell phones, PDAs, and DVD players. Consumers typically praise Audiovox products for being well made and easy to use.

Audiovox makes Sirius receivers for use at home, in the car, and in portable models, called Plug and Plays. The Audiovox Plug and Play (SIR-PNP2) is one of Sirius's most popular receivers. Users praise the SIR-PNP2 for its large, easy-to-read display, for being easy to use, for its good, clear sound, and for its attractive, ergonomic design.

Occasionally mentioned drawbacks of the SIR-PNP2 include the fact that if one lives in a large urban area, the wireless FM tuner may sound like "weak FM." It's recommended that for superior sound, users add the Audiovox FM modulator, which costs under $20.00. However, it should be noted that even the weakest digital sound is superior to the best FM quality.
