My friend the audiophile turns blue at the mere mention of MP3s.

I didn't know that! But since I don't have an i-Pod, I guess I wouldn't.

Is XM in HD? Then the answer would be yes. I'm nearly deaf so I can hear loud, but can't distinguish HD sound over regular sound.

My new car I didn't get the Boston Accoustics stereo like the last one had, planning on doing my own thing in the future but I'm really suffering until then.

The standard radio sucks so bad.

No. The signal is extremely compressed. I think the sound quality is worse than MP3s.

Damn straight! Some of us prefer quality over quantity!

I don't need to have extreme high quality audio in my Camaro. It isn't the best listening environment. MP3s encoded at 320 are good enough.

Autobot, I can respect your appreciation for vinyl in the home, but the selection is very limited for newer releases. It is also very difficult to set up. You have to have a good turntable, cartridge (with proper tracking), and the hardest to find - a good head amp or receiver with a good phono input. I have been extremely disappointed with the phono inputs on my 2 Pioneer and 2 JVC receivers over the last 20 years. Sorry for the off topic rant.

Mylink is bunk right now, lets hope it's a sign of whats coming though. Could be very exciting stuff. It should have a DVD player, that is a rip off. This is 2012 after all.

They know the future is in pairing your device with the car. Mylink article.

Id like to see things like multiple outside cameras and have all kinds of car related apps on the screen, plus DVD.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a CD?

XM is a celestial signal (satellite) and you have to pay for the service.
HD is terrestrial (over the air Hybrid Digital) signal is free but limited to local transmission.
