I use my iPod with over 3,000 songs on it plugged into the soundbar, have no issues hearing it. I have 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up with all kinds of music. Going to put a new Pioneer head unit into the dash with iPod connect that'll stream it via Bluetooth to my jawbone era headset if I so desire as well.

We stop at a book store and pick up a couple of audio books, usually from the clearance bin. Sometimes we finish them and sometimes we only listen for about an hour and then change it out.
Thom will also put his phone on Pandora. He has several different channels he's set up and we change on a whim what we listen to. Everything from pop to rock to country to celtic to pirate music to who knows

Sirius XM tuned to Classic Rewind or Radio Margaritaville depending on which of us is in control. We also go to BBC World News to get reporting without the hype.

I can't say enough good things about xm radio. I rarely listen to regular radio anymore. I do however also love that the stereo in are new coach has bluetooth, Not only can I listen to all my music in my phone but I can answer the phone and still concentrate on driving and the wife or kids can get in on a conversation when grandma and papa call to see how close we are to their house. Bob Seger roll me away starts every trip.

Of the 6,319 songs on my iPod, the ones that start our trips are:
...*.William Tell Overture
...*.Crooked Bridge (Red Hot Chili Pipers -- that's right ... bagpipes!)
...*.Dead Skunk (yeah, we love it, too)
...*.Can't Stop Me Now by Queen (and if you saw Paul Rudd lip-synching this on the Tonight Show recently, you know what I mean)
...*.Little Darlin' (The Diamonds)
...*.Rave On (Buddy Holly)
...*.Hod Rod Heart (John Fogerty)
...*.Footloose (Kenny Loggins)
...*.Glory Days (Bruce Springsteen)
...*.Barometer Soup (Jimmy Buffett)
...*.American Pie (Don McLean)
...*.Alice's Restaurant Macacree (Arlo Gutherie)
...*.Gimme Some Lovin' (Blue Brothers)
...*.Sweet Home Chicago (Blues Brothers)
...*.Sweet Home Alabama (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
...*.On The Road Again (Willie Nelson)
...*.Six Days on the Road (Sawyer Brown)

And then once the wheels have been turning awhile, we'll switch to one of the other playlists, put the iPod on shuffle, or listen to Sirius XM or ... how revolutionary ... just enjoy the quiet (well, as quiet as it can be going down the road behind a V-10).

Will certainly have to consider adding some these other musical suggestions, though. Some great tunes on this discussion.

VAParrothead... good stuff on your playlist for getting a road trip started right. Thanks for sharing.

And agree with the others about Sirius/XM... select whatever station is appropriate for the moment and enjoy.

X2 I install a 500 watt receiver into a custom housing on my MH. Someday I will get some pictures. Used a big gammer surround sound speaker system to include a 117 vac sub woofer. It all runs off the inverter that used to power a dumb stereo from the late 90 that Winnebago thought was great and we all know it was crap.

Hooked up the output of the in dash am fm radio with the use of low to high impedance transformers with volume adjustments to provide matched impedance to the inputs of the receiver. So we can listen to the radio, play cd's or use the ipod.

at night we have a new LED TV connected with optic cable and run back with the hdmi interface so we have a complete entertainment center. Listen to all kinds of music but really like the collection my DW made from our library of CD's and put on the ipod. now we have randomly selected great sounds.

I have over 100 CD's here in the Motor home mostly Classical, some Folk, some Country, Some Rock, some "Easy listening" some Filk, I have Wayne Green's Musical War of the Worlds, I have Phantom of the Opera, I have Kenny Rodgers, I have Johnny Cash.. Leslie Fish, Julia Ecklar and Juanita Coulson (who's books I really have carried).

In short. Lots of assorted music, and that is just the CD colleciton, now when it comes to MP3's... Well, Some of the same plus a whole lot more.

When the last Space Shuttle disaster happened.. Buzz Aldren quoted a verse from a song "Fire in the sky" by Dr. Jordan Kare Well... I have it, (Already had it in fact) on the hard drive.

In short: If its music.. I have it, more than likely. Music is Sung or Played,, If you ask the performer what he does and he said "I DO___" (as in I do RAP or Hip Hop) Well, music is Sung or played,, Not done.
Home is where I park it!
