Some Sirius channels have higher bit rates than others but fundamentally the improvement is not something to be proud of. The best reported resolution has been 60kps (music), and as low as 15kps (traffic)

DIRAC is to make you feel as close as possible to a soundstage and not to upconvert the source. But overall it is not that good in a car environment, IMO -I used to have that OEM system in my old M3 and I coded it out. Logic7, Euphony and even Dolby ProLogic II are better in a car environment -again, IMO.

You will be complaining about some other sound issue the same with it, for sure.
