Does anyone listen to music on Sirius XM?
I love to listen to it while driving, especially while on vacation. We listen to listen to it on TV using Amazon firestick.

Willies's roadhouse is so relaxing, it puts me to sleep at night.

I had XM for a while. Did the tunes seem kind of "flat" to you????

I listened to the old time shows and songs. Really liked the older comedians on there. I dropped it several years ago. When we quit hauling feed I just do not spend as much time in a vehicle like I used to.

JD, Just the opposite, I have two great sound systems, one in car one on TV. I hear musical notes I never heard on cheap TV and car radio.

My car hijacks my smartphone while driving. The sound quality of phone through car's speakers is amazing. Car uses phone's google maps for navigation. Again I hear it just fine at a low volume.

Before I got a better TV and car I thought I needed a hearing aid.

I wouldn't be without it.I put docking stations in all my vehicles,work shop,cellar shop,and a shed.I can just swap the receiver like changing a cassete.I actually have four subscriptions in my name.I have one that lives in the garage where I work,and another one that floats between four different vehicles.My wife bought a car that had it built in so I got her receiver turned on for Christmas.My mother likes it so I pay for my folks subscription at Christmas too.I will go without almost anything except music.I listen to some classic rock,a lot of Willies Roadhouse,most any country except for pop country.but the garage radio pretty much stays on Outlaw Country.

I have it in my truck, and my wife has it in her Jeep. I wish my big tractor had it too. I mostly just don?t play the tractor radio. In my truck it?s Willie?s road house most of the time, but the 50?s and 60?s sometimes. My wife almost always listens to 40?s junction. I don?t want to hear news , weather , sports, traffic reports, blabbering DJ?s or advertising

Ayup, Sweetie listens to The Message (contemporary Christian), and I listen to Enlighten (southern gospel)
When we're both in the car together, we take turns! LOL

Yep. I listen to XM every day. Mine seems to be stuck on outlaw country.

the audio bandwidth of XM is pretty good, around 16Khz. However, the compression of the digitized media is significant, leading to many to describe it as tinny, or crunchy. High sampling rates, and high end analog to digital conversion make for very high cost. The signal is digital all the way from the source, through the antenna, to the receiver, and is converted back to analog in the audio portion of your radio. I think most of the issues still come from the source, so getting a different radio most likely won't help. But - I don't know(and XM isn't telling) what the sample rates are, or the compression algorithm they use.

I don't know what SXM does. I have an 2018 XT5 with a Bose sound system. It sounds GREAT. I hear musical notes that I've never hear before. Like I said before. I thought I needed a hearing aid. Instead I just needed a good quality sound system.

Don't have a Bose radio yet for house, but will check into one.
