I've had Sirius in 2 vehicles for a while now and it definitely gets my vote. To me they have better stations, but one downfall I've noticed is sound quality. XM sounds a little clearer/crisper but it may be just me. Overall I believe Sirius to be the better of the 2 though.

Howard > Everything else.

Sirius does sound kinda weak though signal wise. Somewhere between AM and FM. Maybe it'll get better with popularity. I've never heard XM's sound quality though.

Never used Sirius. However, i've never been impressed with XM as their selection seems less than what I expected.

This may be a retarded question but what are most people using to listen at home or work (speaker-wise)? I need it mostly at work but don't want to spend $100+ for the shitty boom-box that requires shitloads of D-cell batteries or an additional AC power adapter that they don't bother to give you w/the overpriced boom-box.

if you have an account, you can log onto Sirius/XM on the net and listen by way of your computer

True but only music stations are accessible online. The main reason I got Sirius is for Stern.

Thumbs down

What a pile of fucking shit. I can't get ANY reception in my office w/this thing. This was the sole purpose of getting Sirius. Guess mine will be for sale soon.

Yes, the antenna must have a clear view of the sky to get signal.
If you have the internet, listen through your computer.

Back to the problem w/Stern's dumbfucking ass not allowing his shit to be streamed on the web. This sucks so bad. Thanks for the info.
