Satellite Radio System
LA Audio File's sister publication LA CAR has reviewed a number of cars factory-fitted with satellite radio systems, and they have all been enjoyable. Most recently, it was an XM Radio-equipped Cadillac Escalade ESV that the reviewers had the pleasure to listen to. The clean, distortion-free CD-like sound quality, coupled with the vast selection of stations (100 - ranging from comedy to news to television programs to just about every kind of music genre you can think of) always makes the ride just that much more enjoyable with satellite radio. The reviewers always wanted to try an aftermarket satellite radio system, but were put off by all the nickel and dime parts needed to assemble it, and ultimately by its total price.
Delphi has introduced an aftermarket system that addresses both concerns. It's called the XM Roady, and comes fully-equipped will the parts one needs to enjoy satellite radio: XM receiver, cassette adaptor, cigarette lighter power adaptor, and micro-antenna. Best of all, the whole package sells for only $119.99. This was enough for us to take the initiative to acquire one for long-term use.
