Yamaha Electronics and XM have a partnership to introduce what they say are Yamaha's first XM-Ready home entertainment products. Yamaha will manufacture four receivers and several new home-theater-in-a-box systems with XM "Connect-and-Play," a technology designed to integrate XM into a range of home entertainment products.
XM introduced a chipset at CES that it says enable the satcaster's technology to be incorporated into various devices. This chip will be in the Yamaha XM products.
The first Yamaha XM-Ready receivers will be available in April.
Consumers plug an XM Connect-and-Play home antenna into the XM-Ready Yamaha AV receiver and activate the service to receive XM's 150-plus digital radio channels.
The Connect-and-Play antenna can receive XM's satellite and terrestrial signals as well as perform channel tuning, decoding and audio transmission. It will be the only accessory needed to get XM through an XM-Ready audio system.
