Default Quick Question about starbase

This may be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyways before I spend all that money on a starbase. I have a kenwood KDC-X789. If I were to get a starbase, could I hook it up to the aux input? Would the sound quality be better than or equal to the quality that I would get if I got sirius directly through my kenwood headunit?

Yes, you can hook up the starbase to the aux inputs of your Kenwood HU, there are a pair of RCA connectors on the radio for audio output!

i don't think it would be better than it. probably more or less the same. a direct connection is a direct connection.

I guess its really a matter of ones own ears. I personally find that a SIRIUS tuner connected directly via a CD DIN cable has a tad bit better sound than when converting the DIN to an Aux-Input. However, they are so close that I am sure for most people there would really be no difference. I just find that I got a bit better bass and separation.
