My wife gave me an XM radio and subscription for Christmas. I tell her
regularly that it is one of the best gifts ever. I use the "boombox" in the
shop and listen to it for hours without getting tired of it. It is much
more relaxing and makes my time out there more pleasant. If a channel gets
a little too over the top for my taste I just switch to another one, and no
advertising on any of them. They play a lot of music I never heard
before, and a lot of old tunes that I haven't heard in years. Monday I was
off for President's Day and listened to a show that Tom Petty hosts where he
plays his favorite stuff - all good.
It's made listening to radio fun again, as I used to get annoyed with the
inane banter from the DJ's on regular radio, and the advertising. Not
..Usual disclaimer.. no affiliation with XM etc. Just happy customer.
Possibly. Years ago, a friend had his in-dash cd player stolen. The
thief broke the radio during the removal process, so he threw it through
the backlight of the car. 8^(
The local pawn shops and fences won't accept sat radio gear, and the
cops I deal with tell me most thieves actually know this by now.
Same with DirecTV.
XM's music sound quality is better than both DirecTV and my local
digital CATV provider. Also, you'll need to have another TV decoder in
the shop, along with the resulting extra outlet fee.
If the shop is already TV equipped, all is well, but I really don't want
a TV in the shop. If I wasn't married, I wouldn't have cable or
satellite TV service at all! <G>
I have XM in both my Chevrolet truck and my wives Trailblazer. When I'm not
listining to a book on CD I listen to it often. Cinemagic 27 is great for
long drives but I am anxious to hear all of the MLB games. Access to
various news services is a welcome change.
