It’s fair to say that most of the people who experience XM radio do so when they buy a new car. Most major manufacturers include a free trial XM subscription with every purchase. It’s a great solution for those who are looking for talk or music selections that are a little out of the mainstream. Honestly, a lot of folks have moved to streaming services like Spotify and iHeartRadio, but these apps have their limits — you won’t get news or the best talk radio. If you are a fan of classical, jazz, or other less popular formats, you probably won’t get what you want from a streaming service either. And of course, not everyone has unlimited streaming. So, there has to be an option and let’s be honest, local radio stations aren’t going to do it.
If you love XM and you don’t have a new car (or –eek!– you actually want to listen outside the car!) there are options. Most people don’t realize that Solid Signal is the leading XM retailer on the internet and that we carry all the major brands of XM equipment. You can enjoy XM in your home, office, older car, or even just while you’re walking around. The technology is really mature which makes XM a very inexpensive solution. If you’ve ever sat in your car in the garage listening to Howard Stern, you really need to think about investing in a new XM radio system.
XM radio is easy to install, whether it’s for auto or home. The wiring is so simple that practically anyone can do it, and within minutes you’ll be enjoying digital sound no matter where you are. Only Solid Signal carries the best selection of XM products for home including antenna mounts, cable, and receivers. We even have the hard-to-find amplifiers and splitters designed specifically for XM radio frequencies. Don’t use generic parts here, you’ll be very disappointed in the results. Get the accessories you need and your system will work perfectly in every room!
If you’re still using a clunky XM radio receiver from the 2000s you will be really amazed by how small and light these receivers can be now. The technology has improved massively and you’ll find that just by replacing your receiver you’re on the road to great reception everywhere, and additional features like color and touchscreen that you never would have dreamed of a decade ago. XM has gone from “wave of the future” to “established technology” and that means manufacturers really know what they’re doing. Upgrading to the latest XM hardware can really make a difference in an older system.
If you’re on the fence about getting into XM for the first time, upgrading an existing system, or adding XM to your home, take a look at the great selection at Solid Signal and if you have questions, give us a call at 877.312.4547! We’re happy to explain it all!
