    Sattelite Radio?

    hey there, im sick of listening to same old songs on my usb stick, and the ****** sounded radio because it dosnt fit with my bass or anything, so im wondering what you guys do to get nice sounding clear radio, with all types of good old and new music?

    im not familiar with these devices, also dont know my possibilites.

    thanks.

    Satellite radio stations broadcast very compressed music. It's good for having a lot of stations instantly available, but bad for sound quality. You'll need to provide your own music that you know sounds good.

    I told you why satellite radio sounds bad. You can't make bad quality music sound great. It's polishing a turd.

    Re: Sattelite Radio?

    HD Radio is available in most places, I would suggest using a tuner capable of supporting HD Radio. I am not a fan of satellite radio for the bad SQ qualities, but also because the stupid Satellite radio companies want to sign you up for service and automatically renew you without notice. It hurts when you don't have anything in the bank and they hit you with a withdrawal and it overdraws your account. You could always get a phone capable of streaming Pandora or something similar. though I don't know much about it's quality

    Re: Sattelite Radio?

    With you being in California, HD radio should be available to you unless you live in a small town in the middle of nowhere (like here in Mississippi, lol). Here is a link to information on HD receivers:

    What You Need to Know about HD Radio

    With all accessories you add on to components in a system, there will be upsides and downsides. I am not sure of the coverage area around you, there will be a charge for equipment (not expensive) but it's supposed to sound pretty good and it's technically free(unlike satellite radio). But you can't customize it say, like, Pandora, or the genius setting on an Ipod. It's just radio, just cleaner and free. I hope this helps you out some Bro!!
