No; I was born yesterday and am completely self centered and unaware of the possibilites as to how to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.

Well at least it's a reminder of what most others already know- there's always a problem with complaints that are based on personal preferences.

Others already know? Yes, most are aware if you lose a channel, someone's likely to b and m. 

But there seems to be a lot of near duplication, plenty of room to separate the wheat from the chaff.

XM has some sort of new system they tested awhile back that actually produces some stereo separation and a (perceived) increase in quality.  While they were testing it, some of the XM channels were in mono (like Escape and a rock channel which I forget).  But now they sound pretty decent in my car.  I'm anxiously awaiting their "Free Listening Event" (see my other post) which begins TOMORROW (May 21) so I can dust off my SkyFi 2 and Roady which have been inactive for years and see how the channels sound on my home stereo system.

 

In any event, I wouldn't pay more than $25 for 6 months for XM anymore.  That $15/month "regular price" plus music fee plus tax etc. is ridiculous with all the other choices available nowadays.
