Is that the little XM stereo I'm seeing in stores. Under $100 in price? What's wrong with it? I've actually considered picking one up, so please let me know what's wrong with it, so I don't waste my money.
Is this the 1??:

I have 1 and actually like it a lot. That said, there have been some complaints. They all seem to center on a small buzzing sound that a lot of people hear from it. When I say small, it really is small but a lot of people seem to have dog ears. From my research, it really only seems to be prevalent when the volume is really low. Usually, I really have to listen for it to notice it. For me, it doesn't matter a bit but, for you, it might be an issue. I really don't know the reason for this. I would assume either poor craftmanship or it is easy to be interfered with. For the $$, I actually like the sound of it. It won't shatter windows but you can either get a separate cable or a home kit to connect it to a home stereo.
I will say that, for most people, you want to place any satellite radio receiver away from 2.4 GHz phones and microwaves. I never had a problem but some have.
Mad.......I didn't want to scare you. I just wanted to alert you to this.
