  • XM or Sirrius?

    I'm going satellite radio.

    The moral of the story is that none of us knows anything.

    I've had both and prefer sirrius.

    I listen to it about 6 hours a day.

      Sirius. I got it with my Jeep. I'll pay for it when the year's up.

      A few of my friends who have XM were saying that it seems like they just replay a few playlists everyday.

        How does the gear work? I see home kits & car kits. Do you connect to computer speakers? Is the speaker connection on the radio itself or is it a part of the kits?

          I have sirius and I love it..

          You can either plug you own speakers in too the audio out(yes computer speakers work,thats what I use at home) Or you can have the sirius player send a signal out too a station that doesnt have any other FM stations on it,thats what I use in my car.

              I like XM just because they have MLB. If Sirius carried baseball games I'd go with them.

                  I like XM, but have never tried Sirrius.

                        I have Sirius. I think the programming and content is really really good. Sound quality is better than regular radio. The only problem I have is with my reception.

                        I got it installed aftermarket by a (for what I know) reputable car audio retailer/installer. Whenever I go under things it often cuts out. In a tunnel or under a bridge, that's understandable. But on a tree-lined street the overhanging branches will blip out my signal! It's really irritating. Does that happen to you guys? On open roads and highways it's great, but I live in a suburban area with lots of trees which causes me to listen to it infrequently.

                          Thank god. Sirius made the fatal mistake when they forked over $500 million for that unfunny washed up hack Stern. I went with XM and have never regretted it. The music programming is fairly similar, but the XM talk is way better (O&A, Ron & Fez), plus the much smaller hardware and the ability to record shows make the XM hardware far superior.

                              Sirius... If all it had were channel 25 (Underground Garage) and 74 (Sirius Blues), I would still like it better than XM.
