Quality of satellite radio in home audio?

Although I live in a large radio market, I hate the advertising as well as the lack of FM stations that play the genres that I like. In that light, I am curious if Delphi XM, using their home docking module kit, will provide a decent sound in a high quality home audio system. Would it be accurate to say that the quality would be somewhere in the middle between good FM and redbook CD? Thoughts--advice?? Michael S.

Mike - I think that's an accurate statement. I've been very satisfied with the audio performance of my Delphi SkyFi when plugged into my main stereo system consisting of a Sony receiver and Paradigm speakers. I've also listened to it using Amphony wireless headphones, and am perfectly satisfied with the audio quality. Granted, my ears may not be as good as they could be, but I've never found anything to complain about. It may not be quite as good as a CD, but it's definitely better than most FM stations...especially since there are no more commercials on any music channels. Enjoy! Steve K.

I have my XM Delphi plugged into a boombox and it sounds superb. HTF Moderator Steve Simon plugged it into his home stereo unit and was raving about the audio quality.

Yes I just hooked mine up tonight after I brought it home from Best Buy and I think it sounds fine. Granted this is my Upstairs system which is a Sony HT in a box setup, but it sounds pretty nice with the PLII Music mode on the amp. Definately better than my Compressed Digital Cable Music channels.
