I listen to Sirrius that came with my new car. I haven't been real impressed with the sound quality-too much compression on many of the channels, but the content has been good.

I have both, Sirius in our vehicles. XM portable player... Soon to drop XM in 07, when Sirius takes over NASCAR.

I'm an XM FAN ( http://www.xmfan.com/ )

Got the Delphi Roady II installed in my impala. I think its cool how I can be listening to XM on my directv satellite, or on the internet from their page, and then jump into the car and pick right up and continue to listen. My favorite channels are BPM and FRED oh and Cinemagic! I've been very pleased with the service now for a few years.

Xm

I have 5 XM systems, love the Sixties oldies.

I do listen to Sirius on my PC sometimes, not much of a Howard fan ( No Bashing please ) Just like good music.

Enjoy

I have four XM radios. My 06 Cobalt has OEM XM, I have two MyFi portables and one Inno Portable, all of them activated.

I love 60s, 70s, 80s, Fred, Boneyard, High Voltage, Highway16, U.S. Country, the Village and numerous other channels. I can't live without my XM!

I have sirius- my only beef with it is how it has to keep reaquiring the signal in certain areas. I thought they said they had ground stations to help eliminate that.

I lsten to the classic vinyl, rewind, 60's, 70's and commedy.

I am an XM fan, got it originally so I could listen to real baseball (you know the National League (based on OP's name, I couldn't resist that.))

Gill, if you lived in South Dakota for a while (or I guess in West Texas) you might change your mind about that. ;)
