XM radio can blow me [Feb. 17th, 2005|04:00 pm]

Is it just me (and my dad), or does XM Radio sound like an over-compressed mp3 coming through a tincan telephone?

My XM radio free trial is expiring soon and there's no way in hell I can pay for that sound quality. Cut some stations and give each station more bandwidth. Christ.

But I hear Sirius is worse?

no, it's not you.

since i spend so much time at my computer, i thought i'd try out xm's online radio free trial rather than going out and buying an actual receiver.. glad i did the trial rather than paying for it outright; the quality is HORRIBLE.

But does their online service actually deliver the AAC stream they transmit over the satellite, or is it an mp3/real stream?
