    Default Best XM stations for sound quality?

    As XM Radio's sound quality varies from station to station, what are the best-sounding stations on XM?

    Whenever I listen to Top 20 on 20, Flight 26, XM HitList, or any of the pop/rap channels I find the sound quality to be very poor. However, XM Classics and XM Pops sound great so I'd like to find more "quality" stations on XM.

    Thanks!

    The AC/DC channel is pretty decent. I think it is 52 or 53. 53 or 54 is pretty good to (for XM anyway)

    I'll check those out. When I used to have XM set up in my dorm room (connected to Dell PC speakers), the sound quality was listenable on all the channels.

    However, hooked up to my 2 channel rig the sound quality varies from very bad to acceptable to decent (depending on the channel).
