Sound quality of Sirius on Dish is so much better than "Sirius-AM" in the car- its laughable.


I wasn't going to comment on that, but laughable is correct. I don't know what or how the poster is listening from Dish, but it's easily better than in the car. Even the channel separation is better.

Not even sure what "Sirius-AM" in the car is but I'm listening on a true Sirius satellite radio from the vehicle manufacturer, in my case a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  The entire audio system is high edge.  And, yes, it far superior to Dish, at least in this case where I could compare them using the same broadcast within a couple minutes of each other.

The satellite signal is very low bitrate garble warble garbage. If you think that sounds good, more power to ya. The internet feed is a little better, and Dish's feed sounds better than both.


I can play the internet version from the phone into the car and it sounds better. I can play the dish anywhere/sling version too in the car - now that sounds real bad!


Actually I'm quite happy with the selection Dish offers, amazing all that is included in the price.
