I'm new to Sirius after being an XM subscriber for a number of years. Since they're different brands of the same company with similar programming, I decided to take advantage of the receiver built into my new vehicle (2009 Mazda CX-7).

However, I'm greatly disappointed with the sound quality. The sound is very flat. It reminds me of mediocre Internet streaming audio. I find that the built in quality from the Sirius receiver is much worse than the FM transmitter quality from my XM SkyFi2. I find that the quality is worse than FM radio (I'm in central NJ getting channels out of NYC - crowded airwaves, decent distance away).

Does anyone else find the sound quality to be this bad?
