I think the main choice is what people want in channel selection................around here they both work great...........the gear is all priced about the same.....................

I think it comes down to content..........

XM works all the way up in Deese Lake, which is about 4 hours away from the Yukon Border, So no real range issues there, unless you're an eskimo

XM it is then, unless someone wants satelite radio for thier driftwood deck, ew still undecided on decision to bring in kenwood. i prefer the xm commander setup to the sirrius recievers we got today from a size standpoint. the sirrius tuners are HUGE. bills big argument is that cbc is on board with sirrius. if another person that doesnt belong in car audio starts filling my customers heads with bull**** i am gonna feed it back to them with a spoon, in a not so comfortable place. i think marty knows where i am going with this. jus fed up with some peoples children
but anyways he guys thanks for your input. look forward to seeing you up here next week dave, cant wait to see what we can do with this store.

IMO, it would come down to programming.
Technology and reception aside, who wants to listen to 100 channels of crap?
I had heard that sirrus is geared a little more towards a younger croud...
