It seems very similar to Soundscape. Maybe a bit more musical and less rhythmic though too early to fully judge. I'm still too busy enjoying Coffee House to give it lots of listening but I definitely gave it a preset.

Default Too Spacey

I was really hoping for more New Age and less Space Age; I'm pretty disappointed wirh Spa. What I would like to see is more Narada and Windham Hill.

It seems like Space artists just strike a key on their synthesizer and hold it; that long lingering note gets old quick.

Please play more Windham Hill/Narada!

I've not had a chance to listen to spa very much because I too have been enjoing Coffee House. I am very happy that there is an entire channel devoted to soundscapes music. I have given the channel a preset, but the true test comes tonight, as this will hopefully now be my falling asleep channel.

I think those of us that have been around a lot longer than you and been requesting this type channel trump your request a hundred fold. Spa is here to stay, I don't see Sirius ever dropping this genre again.

Default space music at night

I love the new spa, but it needs something like Night Visions on Audio Visions. Space music at night with even some nature stuff. I am listening at 11:24 my time at night and Enya is on. Not always the best falling to sleep music.

YES, I'd love that too. I agree

It's good to have New Age back on Sirius. Now, let's hope for a "beautiful music stream!" Then we'd have all the bases covered.

I wholeheartedly agree... something like XM's Sunny channel would be excellent...

DAB had a good point that perhaps they should make Movin EZ like "sunny" and take the content from Movin EZ to Sirius Love, Starlite, and The Bridge.

A bit too easy listening but a verdict requires more time to listen than I have given it so far.

However, I am verry happy for the return of soundscapes... er Spa73.

Default Great Station

I think it is great during the day, but could be toned down a little for the night hours. Better sleeping music.

Default VOTE RETRACTION

I voted against this stream in error....on second listen I approve.

It can only be listened to when soothing background music is needed, a good way to calm down after a nasty day at work.

I do like this one alot.

It will be one of my presets.

Default Liking it much more today

They've been playing a great mix of music today!

I enjoy listening to New Age all through the day and think it's much more than just "falling to sleep" type music. I must admit that when I borrowed my first couple of CD's I thought it was only good for low level background noise, not music you would take seriously. Well times change and I now enjoy it on a much deeper level.

This is a much better channel than XM's AudioVisions. A few monthes ago I finally broke down and subscribed to XM just for AudioVisions. It turns out that that channel is much too Spacey for me. Not a total loss though, I discovered Sunny and really enjoy that at times.

Seems like I heard a very diverse mix today, including Enya and some very Sunny-like selections as well as solid New Age selections. I hope they keep it up.
