At least the highs don't sound as compressed as FM radio/Bluetooth linked media, especially with the tweeters mounted so high. I thought the amplifier was getting over-worked because it sounds just like clipping or the amp going into thermal protection when the subwoofer drops completely out, then comes back in. Surprisingly, it occurs on the exact same beats every time the same song plays.
I guess it's just a compromise between no lag streaming (bandwidth) and quality. Ugh. Definitely won't be paying for it after the free trial drops off after a year. Pandora through the Aux port on my Droid X sounds better. I need to get an iPod and get same lossless audio on it, not that it would matter much.
