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?


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.

Pheil congratulations and welcome to Audiogon.I can’t blame you staying single, husband are hindrance to audio. Especially younger men 67😀Sorry Deadhead , She is staying single.

Ihcho agree+++, I listen to music daily 2 to 3hrs on work day, off days 4to 8 HRs.

Wife, life, theater room and listening room all conflict. Listening is a luxury when only myself and the dog are home and for some reason, the dog refuses to enter the listening room, but loves watching TV.
