Sirius radio quality vs redbook cd player

Have an Arcam FMJ 27T cd player and am also streaming my cd collection saved to HD using iTunes (lossless format) to a Zardoz (modified Airport Express). I'm considering subscribing to Sirius internet radio and streaming that to my stereo system; so I'm curious about the sound quality of Sirius internet radio vs redbook cd. Anyone have an opinion?
I too enjoy Sirius...mainly listen to classical. First, if are enjoying in the car then the extra 3 dollars to stream at home is clearly a winner. I use it all the time on my Ipod touch and stream the digital into either an HRT Istreamer or into a Marantz SA8004. No not like a great CD or SACD but still good in my opinion. Maybe me but the classical stations sound better than the and other selections.

I gave it a try, got tired of the dropouts (it is line of sight to the sat, so signal is lost constantly around here. Then I put in a cd, listened to that for 5 minutes, never turned on sat radio again.

I also had to fight them to turn it off. I had completed my 2 yr. agreement, told them in writing I did not want to renew. They renewed it anyway and kept charging me. I called them and got an ear full of how it is my fault for not cancelling properly. However, they could not tell me what "properly" meant, but agreed to cancel my acct. Charges kept coming. My bank agreed to not process their attempts at whacking my card so they were cut off. Then the collection agency called. I explained the situation, the collection people agreed with me and that was the end of it.

That's my experience with sat radio. No thank you.
Sat radio had such promise but its just as repetitive as the worst Iheart or Clear Channel offering and its EVERY station. Too many channels also are sucking the life out of the audio quality. Had it for a couple yrs in very start of its roll out but its not good enough to justify.
I just got a trial SiriusXM in my new Subaru Forester. Obviously not like top line Mercedes or BMW quality system-I’ve had them :) However, I’m finding the sound quality very good for car radio in this vehicle. Very happy to have the variety that’s just otherwise available in the Vancouver area of BC. I think it a no brainer for country folks : ) and May keep it if sweetie like it ; )
