The Vault was a classic rock music channel that aired on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 16 and Dish Network channel 6016. The channel was officially dropped on November 12, 2008 because of the Sirius-XM merger, and replaced by XM's Deep Tracks.[1]

The Vault was one of the early satellite stations to broadcast in Dolby matrix surround sound.[2]

The station advertised itself as one that would play deep cuts of classic rock, and Entertainment Weekly described The Vault as "a channel that spins less-familiar songs by dad-rock favorites like Eric Clapton and the Kinks."[3][4][5] The station aired a week-long marathon of Pink Floyd and David Gilmour tracks in March 2006.[6]
