Sirius Satellite sound is so horrible on this stereo, that I avoid it like the plague, radio or MP3 is all I tend to use.

^^^^ This

Here in Canada I mostly listen to FM CBC Radio 2 in the morning (CBC Radio 2 Morning with Tom Powers) and Evening (CBC Radio 2 Drive with Rich Terfry). Best Tunes around. And I have about 3000 songs on the HDD that plays randomly when not listening to Radio.

My Free year of SAT radio is just about up and I can't wait. Then I can show the kids that "Hits 1" doesn't work anymore The Sirius channels I would like to listen to sound like they are streaming at 64Kbs and I can't stand it for more than a few minutes.

#1 = Octane (and #2 Lithium ) ... but I switch mainly between #1 and #6 (the Highway).

And Sirius sound quality is horrible, but on my 5-hour drives (and back) every other weekend, it's worth not having to constantly search for local stations. If I could find my iPod, I'd switch off between the two.

My presets aren't even set up. I stream all my music from my phone.

I don't even know any station numbers here in Texas. Guess I am lucky I wasn't much of a radio fan even BEFORE we moved!

When I wasn't doing MP3's it was Hair Nation with Ozzy's Boneyard #2

With the new head unit, I didn't add the Sat module, just not worth it when I can stream Pandora, aha, iheart radio or simply play MP3s from my phone or ipod.

I do have mine and my wife's radios set up with the same presets but like most of you detest the sound quality of satellite radio. The best thing I ever did was loading my iTunes music to the radios hard drive on both of our Jeeps. All of my music is at least 256k bit rate and the sound quality is awesome. In fact my wife's Sirius expired in March and we haven't renewed her subscription even though they are down to $4.99 per month. I won't renew mine either when it expires in December.

Sirius (quality) is awful...

I can't remember what my #1 station is....probably channel 44 or something like that. Hip-hop, reggae, R&B, techno (prefer trance) and.....coffee house (love acoustic).

I now stream Pandora....99.9% of the time it is on Trip-Hop....the other .01% is split between Dub, Hip-Hop, Acoustic Blues, and Reggaeton.

Don't Use It

I haven't used the radio since I bought it new. I just have all my music on an iPod and listen to it via the USB cable in the console. I set it up with playlists so I can listen to whatever genre I want. I did however change out the entire system (amp, HU, speakers, sub).

^^^ +1 my first preset is channel #2 because my stations are in numerical order

The station I listen to the most is #34 Lithium, 90's Alternative/Grunge

after decades of frustrating pursuit of constantly changing technical components defining how satisfied I was in my wide-ranging appetite for quality sound, and the transient satisfaction each iteration of spendy gizmos to placate me, something I never would have predicted finally seems to be the actual BEST I've found!

The further into geezerhood I migrate, the more satisfying the eccentricities of local AM/news/talk have become. When they are too noisome, OFF button provides welcome relief.

For years I had XM. Got to the point where the juice wasn't worth the squeeze.

Yea geezers!!!!

x2. Sirius is nothing more than convenient for me. Between my phone, the HDD and Sirius I don't even know if the disc player in my Jeep works.

Number one preset on my radio is the grateful dead station. I don't think the sound on Sirius is that bad. Some stations are better than others. The reggae station always sounds good. Plus there are no commercials.

In my Jeep, FM Radio sounds way better than Sirius. And an Ipod or tunes I loaded on the HDD sound even better.

I replaced my HU with a Kenwood. Sirius quality improved with the HU, but is low in general for their sat streams... Something i wished they'd address.

Still, the content is quite good. I enjoy XMU, Lithium, The Joint, Hip Hop Nation, and Willie's Roadhouse.

Like others have said most of my music is from my phone but if I use satellite one is Highway and two is Lithium. After that I don't know, the woman probably has something set.

I like getting new music with out messing with a mp3 player. Can't remember when the last time I downloaded a song was. If I had a different data plan I'd stream Pandora probably
