    I have a mid level Pioneer HU, Pioneer receiver, and (mostly) aftermarket speakers. Anyhow I've been hearing a sound resembling a cd skip on the few stations I listen to. I will try and listen to other stations since I found this can be station specific from time to time (google). I know its not the HU or speakers since the ipod and cd's do not experience this problem.

    IMO it sounds like an antenna reception issue.
