Default Radio / SiriusXM Question

I'm not sure what model stereo I have, but I have the 2011 Dodge Ram Sport Crew Cab with what I think is the Alpine speaker upgrade.

I've noticed that when i'm listening to SiriusXM and i'm switching stations or when there is a pause in the music, I hear this sort of scratch/hiss that I can only describe as the sound you would hear when you put a CD/DVD in and you can hear it buffering/loading. Its faint, but if I turn the volume down on the radio it goes away. Its bothered me enough that multiple times i've had to check to make sure there wasn't a CD buffering or something else that would be making the noise.

I've also noticed that if I use the Uconnect with my phone, the quality of music over bluetooth isn't too great. I get some fuzz and distortion. On the same phone i have a quality bluetooth speaker which works perfectly.

Is there a chance I got a bad unit or a bad speaker/speakers? or should this type of noise just be expected, and i'm making too much out of it?
