XM has unveiled two radios, the XpressR and the XpressEZ, both from Audiovox.

The XpressR is the first satellite radio with split-screen display, according to XM, and has features such as 30-minute pause and replay. The XpressEZ offers affordable, entry-level access to XM programming.

These two radios join the mid-tier Xpress receiver in a line of Xpress plug-and-play products.

The split screen on the XpressR allows users to see six XM channels at the same time. A 30-minute buffer enables users to record, pause and playback material.

The XpressEZ features a large three-line display and offers the option of saving up to 10 XM channels for easy tuning.

Optional accessories for the home include the Universal Xpress Home Kit, new Delphi Premium Sound System, and Belkin Boombox.

The XpressEZ and XpressR will list for $69.99 and $129.99 respectively.
