How do you find time to enjoy your $$$ speakers and system?

Maybe this topic is more of recommendation and sharing ideas than a question. We invested in our hifi systems for years to get to a place where we appreciate what our systems sound. Now, how do you find time to enjoy listening to music if many of us work long hours and still need to take care of family, errands etc…I don’t remember when was the last time I spent more than 2 hours a week at the most to enjoy the system I spent $$$ to build. How do you find time to enjoy your system?


It never stop amazing me how fast a post can evolve from the original question. This one for example was asking how we find time to listen to the system we have spent years putting together to enjoy the music. Now we have to endure people referencing that listening to music through their cell phone speaker is finding time. Just as I tell my kids listening or understanding what your have read is an art. 

Sometimes I feel sorry that I am not spending as much time. 

If you still work full time and if your kids are still around, it would be hard to spend more than an hour per day for the music.

However, if you are a true music lover, you can still find time for music because the music brings a joy to your life. I listened to the music especially when I am tired and somewhat feel empty. The music always feels the void. 

My average time for music (in active listening mode, not as a background music or casual listening) is about 5 hours per week. Hope I can pull more hours.
