"SkyFi2 improved audio quality in car speakers"4.0 starson by Lv2skivt
Pros: Easy set-up, Channel line-up, Portability
Cons: Holiday music programming and sound not as good as cable
Summary: I've been impressed with a friend's XM reception and channel choices, so I bought the bundled option on sale at Circuit City (includes SkyFi2, auto kit, and boom box for $100.00 after rebate. I also purchased the home kit for $50.00.)
The receiver plays through the casset adapter in my '93 Miata with original factory speakers. They never sounded so good. The home stereo sound is good, not great. The boom box is fair, but I don't use it much.
I agree with other reviewers that cable providers do a better job not only with audio, but I like their music choices for holiday songs better than XM. I Like XM's vast array of channels, but would like to see a "folk" venue added to the menu.
