I don't use SiriusXM mostly because the sound quality is not good.

Also, up here in the northern part of USA, the signal is weaker and experiences frequent drop-outs, especially when we drive up around Canadia.

I much prefer using Pandora subscription. For $5 a month I get high quality streaming that I can play using multiple devices, not tethered to one vehicle.

All 3 of our cars have good enough stereos in them that we can tell the SQ difference.

I use it in a boombox and i did notice it sounds highly compressed which is disappointing. But since its free for a while at least ill manage. I use it for background music anyway. I'm able to get decent signal where i am in basement level

I had to retrofit the XM reciever out of a Cadillac deville, antenna out of a Pontiac Montana, and head unit out of a grand prix into my Malibu to get it to work how I wanted as if it were factory (these never had it), but it works and I love it. The sound quality through my monsoon system is great and much better over FM, and its worth the $10 per month. So yea, despite all the work it took to make it work, I love it and the music selection.

That's awesome Alex! Your Malibu is such a cool car, clearly built with lots of love  :D

My 04' Volkwagen Jetta has a Monsoon stereo. The sound quality and bass richness is just as good as the Harman Kardon stereo in my new '16 Subaru Legacy. I love having a premium stereo, really makes a difference.

Channels 70 and 105, Hallmark and Holly Christmas music respectively are done for the season. I might choose two other classic rock/jazz stations to take their place until next December. Sirius XM is so great! Channel 62 is the Bluegrass channel and they have really uplifting Gospel music each Sunday morning  :)

My vehicles came with receivers, but are not active, since Alaska is outside of their coverage area.  However when I'm at home, I do sometimes tune my TV to the select Sirius channels I get over Dish.  In the car, I usually either use radio, my iPod or streaming (Amazon Prime).
