Sirius Conductor Photo

When Sirius announced its new systems yesterday, there was a general dearth of imagery for the Conductor remote/receiver combination that would let listeners stream satellite radio to any stereo in their home. An initial photo of the remote sheds light on the hardware and its abilities: as seen in the supplied photo, the Conductor is much closer in appearance to a television remote than the radios Sirius is known for. This limits the screen size, but it also gives a large amount of control to the user - including over other home theater hardware. The Conductor can hold up to 30 preset stations and doubles as a remote for up to six other pieces of audio or video equipment, which should help reduce the sheer volume of remotes that accumulate in many living rooms. We can learn how well this concept works in practice when the remote ships in November for $150.
