Here is my entry. I bought the PNP1 the day they came out in retail stores. The Boom Box was bought on Christmas Eve of 2003 proving that Joe Clayton did not lie about the boom box coming out before Christmas that year. The set up is still playing in my boat dealer's shop. They run it 24 hours per day and I get preferential service.

Damn, I can't top that. I do have an ancient xact jockey that still works, but it's shut off because the on/off button failed.

Nice box!

I've been lucky with my Starmate STR2. It's 4yrs old and still going.

Here's my Sportster

My Sportster Replay is still going at the office. The display does not light up most of the time, but otherwise it still works!

The white box on the right is my Sonos unit which plugs into a Bose Wave Radio. I use the Sonos to stream other services like radio, Rhapsody and Pandora. I can also stream SXM on there when the satellite signal cuts out. Not a bad setup for the office.

I loved that old setup! It is fantastic that you still have it working!

Good to see you back on the site Rich. I thought about you the other day when I was in Galveston and drove up to Kemah and eventually ended up in Houston at the Apple Store. :)

I'm still running 2 Sportster 3s in my trucks. The one in my wifes truck is rocking along fine, the one in my truck is losing its working buttons by the day. I have a remote that I use and that has started to get wonky in the past month or so. Will keep using it till it dies completely as I refuse to give Sirius any money to swap radios with their content lineup seemingly going down the tubes here lately.

My Sportster Replay from Xmas 05 is still going in the truck and sometimes in the garage in a boombox. The screen is fading a little and the buton lights are starting to die but it still cranks the tunes.

I have a Starmate1 that is still going strong in my wife's car. I can't remember exactly when I bought it but it's been at least 6 or 7 years. I also have an S10 that's doing fine in my truck. It's at least 6 years old, too.

I've got you all beat, it's so old I can't even find it on the web. Still works to this day, and we've only paid for it once (paid for 3 months, stopped paying but it just keeps playing) this thing has got to be 10 years old or so. I'll take pics later when I'm home.

Yepper! antenna and all.Now I have 4 radios.NYC radio sucks so bad,except for SIRIUS.And channel 7 is sounding so good lately.Ahhhyeaaahaaa

Awesome. FM blows everywhere. I had to get a new car a few weeks ago and I haven't been able to install my SL2 properly yet. The static from the weak fm transmitter is almost as bad as actually having to listen to fm! I hope I can wire it up soon.

Here you go...


Using it this morning, this is one of the two that I only paid to get service for a year, and it's been playing every year since that one for free.

Sorry to invade this SIRIUS thread but my son has been using the XM SkyBox since 2004 (Christmas). It has XM, AM, FM, AUX. The CD player no longer works.
