    Well - to this pair of (almost 57 year old) ears - Sirius XM isn't even as good as some of my MP3s - Most of which were ripped to 160kbps or better (anything I do now is done to 320kbps - and that is still not quite as good as CD) . sat radio is great for having radio out on the rode - you can listen to the same channel all the way across the country - and then there is the variety factor. I enjoy having sat when I'm driving cross country / out of my local area - but I usually listen to local broadcasters for news / traffic/ etc.

    I'll have you know that I probably have better ears than you - I can still hear 22KHz - can you ?

    I can hear the missing info from Sat and MP3's. Nothing wrong with my equipment. I can't see for crap without my glasses, but my hearing is VERY WELL developed - I played in the orchestra on Cello and string bass while I was going through school.

    Don't worry about that guy, he claims a lot of things of about terrible audio being good and we all know he has no real evidence for any of it, and hes just generally wrong about everything he says on this subject.

    I just came here to ask if there was a trial. Thanks. My new car trial expired May 6th. Yesterday was scrolling through channels and hits1 came on. Thought wow, a mess up in my favor! I won’t respond to their 6 months for $30 comeback offer until AFTER this trial. Noticed two favorites, Z100 and KISS-FM say Not Authorized.

    You might need to request a signal refresh. The trial should include all channels.

    Notice the smartphone app is free too. Above the login button is a simple button to get right in. It all seems to work and work well. The Bluetooth audio to my car works well and the sound quality is much better. There’s a ton more channels real high up on the dial. My steering wheel controls also change the song. Very nice.

    Blueflash: Have you any information regarding bitrates that Sirius satellite is sending out for music channels?

    Lovin' it! For those of us who may have previously enjoyed the amazing and ever-increasing variety of programming available on SiriusXM, not to mention the virtually uninterrupted coast-to-coast coverage, this welcome "freeview" of a high-quality audio provider, and its well-managed playlists, is yet another opportunity to freely sample some of the great SiriusXM programming, without any commitment whatsoever. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I discovered the trial today when my car started giving me weather warnings. I don't subscribe to that part of the service but weather, fuel prices, movie times and traffic all started working today on my Nissan.
