Wanted: Best place to purchase new Sirius receiver

Hello all,

Has anyone been successful in sourcing out a new or used Sirius receiver that was not $500. I find it hard to believe that these receivers are this much money. I have yet to find a reasonable on-line website for this part!

If you have had any luck, I would like to hear about it.

I bought one off eBay two weeks ago, it was $215 shipped - many people on here sell it for $350.

But here's the kicker, circle and tischer sell them for like $420.. BUT that $420 comes with a year of service worth roughly $160.

So why would you pay $350 plus $160? You end up paying more for a used part.

The dealer tried to activate my eBay receiver today, and it's bad.. Im returning that one, ended up buying a new one from the dealer. Not worth the hassle, there's like 4 or 5 diff models for certain production ranges, didn't want to deal with it anymore

^^ Long story short, unless the receiver is less than $275 I don't think it's worth buying used.
