Is it just me or does Sirius Radio sound even more horrible than usual?

I know it has never been audiophile quality but I was listening the other day and decided to "turn in up" so I could really hear the music and my goodness it was just horrible. Have they lowered their bitrate even more? I move it around a little and can be listening to deep tracks, alternative or jazz. I like the variety of genres but the audio quality is really really bad.

To me it sounds pretty good, especically considering a few days ago I had to drop my RR Ghost off for a f--king Software Update (the gift of BMW keeps giving, LOL) and they were out of Rolls Royce loan cars, so the gave me a 2006 Bentley Flying Spur Sedan. It only had FM radio :-o HOW I missed the clarity and quality of Sirius radio...and NO commercials!

The sound quality on satellite is horrible. I've noticed it get worse at times when some of the songs aren't great quality. I think it's a combination of horrible audio and that some songs are played at lower bit rates. Whoever decided on the audio should be fired.

Not just you, it was sounding like complete crap yesterday, have no idea why either, I remember thinking "Why does the music sound so sh*tty???"

On a side note, I bet it has something to do with all of us who "cheat" the system and get the sirius radio for $30/6months... ha...

I totally agree...another pet peeve is it does not show the artist or cover - like Pandora or itunes
