Were you in Demo mode?- I picked one up yesterday and the Album Art remains on throughout the song.
I did notice that sometimes the album art does not appear with some popular songs- they just may need to be loaded into the system eventually, or it's not available as the full manual on line states "When available"

BB had The Edge on clearance for $118 - with less features than the Onyx Plus for $99 so as Taylor mentioned previous Edge/Lynx radios are going away.

I hope that on 10/18 when CC finally goes away- they take the 2.0 latino channels to 1.0 and then have the BW to move some of the new internet only's (Beautiful music, 90's-2k dance, etc to 2.0 radio's)- So you can hear all over not just internet- :)

It wasn't in demo mode but I didn't spend much time with it. You are probably the first one in our group to get it. I should have picked one up when they were selling for $69 but I'll stick with my Edge. I'd also like it if that Beautiful Music channel becomes available on the radios. But I'd also like to see the Village returning to the radios. That Mary Sue Twohy show on Sunday mornings is really good but it would be better if it was available all the time.

This radio sounds like a nice compromise to the Lynx as far as its satellite features go. I like having album art and the tunemix was something I was into on the lynx. Sadly, I don't own any actual radios anymore, except my trusty SL2 (although it is currently across the bay at a friends house...I wasnt able to locate it when I was there last, but I sure hope its there still..somewhere) but this looks like something I'd get if I had the money to spend on a new radio. I still want to try to get a lynx again, regretting selling mine.
 
Heads up for anyone looking to get one of these - I just saw that Best Buy has them on sale for $79.99 through the end of the day. Just grabbed one myself after testing it out in-store a few weeks ago. Looks like the best plug and play radio they have released yet.

Got the usual bait and hook e-mail from SXM. The Edge is on clearance for 9.99 provided you buy a 6 month sub at retail price. Since TSS is showing it's currently out of stock I thought it would be post worthy in this thread. The Starmate 5 ans Snap are the same price with similar conditions.

I have an Edge and have always like it. I don't think it did well because it came out before the Lynx and everyone was excited about the potential of the Lynx. If it would have come out afterwards as an alternative it might have done better.

Got an SXM e-mail for a "free" Stratus 7 if I purchase a six month sub which is half what they use to require. The ETF is 50 bucks (radio retails for 79.99. Not sure what the interest level is in a plug and play for an older vehicle or boombox.

Taylor I see that you have featured on your main page that the TTR2 is coming soon, I am already on the wait list, but being that it's listed on the front page does that mean its coming real soon?- I just sold my Squeezebox because they will not longer support SiriusXM's app upgrades I would love to get this radio as it's SiriusXM only and will have all the functionality that the internet stream app has.

I forget what it's called, but the device where you could plug your iOS device into it and get service into your car... I'm surprised they never did an Android version.

Then again, this company shouldn't surprise me with stuff like that. They promote a new product and less than a year later, it's on clearance.
