    it's 16kbs, so recording them and making them 320kbs would be a waste of space

    > why.

    Because the bitrate for those XM radios streams are 16kbps. (I don't even know if MP3 could go that low). You're not going to get quality that doesn't exist by ripping the streams and encoding to 320kbps. 320kbps is a waste for a 16kbps stream.

    Just pick some nice number like 128kbps.

    > And isnt XM supposto be like cd quality

    No, not really. Well, I suppose XM Radio stations could use higher bitrates. High enough to sound like CD quality. But the stuff you're listening to in Winamp aren't like what you listen to in the car when it's coming from a satellite. AOL and XM must have teamed up to stream their radio stations on the internet. But that doesn't mean it's going to sound as good.
