In my opinion this new App is by far not user friendly or intuitive, although the previous GUI was not the best it still was easier to use and look much better.

I have to agree, the new app seems designed to look great but is far from userfriendly.
there should be a way to develop a straightforward GUI, without useless bells and whissles
SiriusXM Application Settings for Streaming Audio Quality on Bose Soundtouch SA-5 Amplifier
Product: Bose Soundtouch SA-5 Wi-Fi Internet Connected Amplifier
Application:. SiriusXM Streaming Music Application.
The setup: The SiriusXM App has a way to set the Streaming Audio Quality (Normal, High, Maximum). At least the SiriusXM App on my iPad and iPhone has this option.
The question: How do I set the SiriusXM Streaming Audio Quality on the Bose Soundtouch SA-5 Wi-Fi Internet Amplifier?
My understanding: I believe that the SoundTouch Amplifier has a version of the SiriusXM Streaming Music Application installed on it. The human interface to the SiriusXM App (installed on the Amplifier) is through the Soundlink Application. Therefore what I can and cannot do with the with the SiriusXM App is controlled by the Soundtouch App. Do you think I am correct?
Obviously, streaming audio quality is important. To think that there is a streaming quality setting that I cannot access based on the Soundtouch Application omitting this control on the User Interface, makes me a "warped, frustrated old man".
Thank you for the question. We do have a streaming quality adjustment available with the Spotity service, but currently don't have it for SiriusXM yet. Unless you are using Bluetooth, you are absolutely correct. As a SiriusXM user myself, I agree that this is important and will certainly relay your feedback.
