Anyone 25 or younger probably has ZERO idea of what sounds good to begin with because they are use to there mp3 players/IPods.
Again, both of those are CHOICE/CONTENT, not superior sound quality, as well.
Having a ton of music/videos/whatever on the go in your pocket, for you to access any time you want.
Agreed, and honestly in a car, to me it doesnt make much difference anymore. I used to want the most perfect sound ever when I was younger, and now I reserve that for my home, the car I just want to crank it and have it sound reasonably good, I am not looking for CD quality sound, and to me it doesnt sound much worse then FM.
I think the sound quality is just fine.
People also have to remember that 90% of the market could care less if its perfect because one, they cant tell the difference, and two most people leave the OEM stereo in the car so even if the stream was better it wouldnt be realized using oem equipment anyway.
