It is almost unbearable to listen to. I can only use it at low levels as a “background” music, Usually on Sunday morning when I am reading the paper or something. I rank it right up there with elevator music. One time I walked into a cell phone store and “music” was playing in the small store. The split second I heard it, I told the salesman: “That’s Sirius Satellite isn’t it?” He said: “yep, how can you tell?”. I said: “Because it sounds like crap! I can’t stand it.”
The only reason I have it is that it comes with Dish Network. If you could opt out and lower your bill I would do so in a heartbeat. To go out and buy a special radio and then turn around and pay a monthly fee for this shoddy product, to me is idiotic. If I want music in my car I just would load up a ripped CD of music Mp3s @ 256 rate and it would hold plenty to listen to, or plug in an iPod whatever.
