    I have heard that HD Radio looses it signal and fades in and out. Was wondering if anyone has experience with this in Bay Area, and driving to our country home in Copperopolis?


    I am looking for clean music to play in my TACO.

    Someone should start a Thumb drive sharing site...

    Signal quality completely aside, satellite radio is just flat out better. Much better song selections, uncensored (if you like various extreme styles of music, or talk radio), more stations, etc.

    You just gotta pay for it. But it's become one of those things where I'd rather pay for it than not have it.

    Satellite radio is available on DIRECTV/DISH and I believe sat radio comes with cable as well. It's also available via the web. HD Radio is nothing more than a clear channel concoction to sell more ad revenue streams.

    sirius satilite radio, more on the way when i get more money. oh ya removed the secondary filter
    I have sirius. it depends on what you want sports wise MLB go with xm, NFL on sirius. i think both have a choose your own channels. Sirius has a family friendly package. checkout their websites for more info. siriusxm.com I havent had any experience with hd radio. hope this helps. go with satellite radio its worth it. hope it helps

    I'm leaning towards Sirius. It's like $16.00 a month. I'm like wanting to pay $5 per month though...lol


    Whats the deal? Don't they have lots of people advertising on Sirius or XM? They need to start a $5 a month plan

    Once, I buy the Sirius hardware for my Kenwood DDX512 i'm gonna be pretty stuck.

    How much you guys paying for Sirius or xm?

    A lot of the newer radios have both sirius and xm capability. They're the same company now, but I haven't looked at what the price choices are lately. I've had sirius now for 4 years, since Howard Stern left regular radio. Even if he retires, I'm keeping my Sirius, the sound quality and music choices of standard radio don't even come close to what you can get on sat. radio. I pay about $14 a month for it and worth every penny.
