Audiovox XpressR Radio

Audiovox today previewed the XpressR, a receiver it claims is the world's first satellite radio to have a split-screen interface. Its widescreen LCD provides headroom enough to browse the channel guide while still viewing the existing station's track data. The R in the product name also hints at the radio's replay function, according to the company: buffer memory gives the XpressR as much as 30 minutes of audio to pause or backtrack through the recording. Listerns alternately have the option of checking stocks, weather, and other news regardless of station and can set the receiver to automatically switch to stations when a favorite musician or sports event goes on-air.

Built primarily for the car, the new Audiovox system has a universal connector to dock with home theaters and other audio systems. A docking station as well as multiple car and power adapters ensure the system will work in most vehicles without extra parts or a custom installation.

The XpressR is due for release in June at a relatively low $130 before adding XM's monthly subscription fees. [via Orbitcast]
