JVC’s KTSR2000 sleek new Sirius Satellite Radio Plug n’ Play offers a unique PDA like design which seamlessly integrates into a car’s interior without interfering with the passenger space.Smaller than its predecessor by a third, JVC’s compact, PDA-styled KT-SR2000 Plug ‘n’ Play (PnP) Sirius Satellite Radio receiver brings a wealth of music and news programming to your car and/or home audio system in a device that’s as easy to use as it is to transport. The PnP receiver offers accessible buttons and a large, bright LCD with multiple options for enhancing legibility. Artist names and song titles are presented in large type to enhance safety by minimizing distractions. Use of the receiver requires activation of a subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio ($12.95 per month or a one-time fee of $499.99). You’ll also need a car or home docking apparatus, sold separately.
The KT-SR2000 lets you enter a desired channel/stream number directly, or you can search for programming by scrolling through a list of channels or even a list of currently playing artists. For one-touch access, you can set up to 18 stream preferences, or presets, with the option to lock or unlock a given function. For example, you can store a list of preferred categories and stations without fear of alteration until you decide it’s time for a change.
Memory Capture stores 20 favorite songs in the form of PDTs (Program Definition Text, with artist name and song title), and, when activated, the unit’s S-Seek feature will search all incoming streams for those songs.
Time-based functions include an alarm, a sleep timer, and program alert, which switches the KT-SR2000 to a preprogrammed stream at a selected time. The KT-SR2000 features an easy-to-read LCD with separate controls for brightness, contrast, and font. This model also features an ambient light sensor, which automatically adjusts the display brightness to suit your viewing conditions.
The KT-SR2000 must be used with one of the following adapter kits:
