    simply, which is better overall? ie. sound quality, channels, specific programs.

    better?? Not sure about that but I think it mostly comes down to the specialty channels for me. I went with XM because I can listen to all the MLB baseball games during the season, very handy for drives home from work and trips during the summer. Sirius comes with all the NFL football games but personally I'm not in the car much on Sunday afternoons to listen to them so its a mute point with me.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    I went with sirius, just because that is what my wifes Clarion in dash dvd player is compatible with. Like rberry88 said, it is all preference, if you like MLB, go with XM, if you like NFL, go with sirius, if you like Howard Stern, go with Sirius, if you like Eminem, go with Sirius, otherwise, look at the features of both, and decide for yourself.

    I love my Sirius radio!!! I went with them so I could listen to Howard Stern. The comedy stations are pretty awsome and you can hear some really cool unsigned bands also.
    What is the distance between here and now anyway?:mac:

    I have XM, no complaints, never had Sirius so I can't really compare.

    I have had sirius for over a year and having listened to XM a lot aswell I have to say there is no comparison. The stations on sirius seem to have much better DJs and just seem to be more lively then the ones on XM.

    Maxim Radio is also great to listen to and funny as ****.
