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.
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?

@nonoise +1 "I listen when I want to and not to some ideal from a forum or peer group that's all caught up in the gear and minutiae."
...and, I got a tuner and tune it to KUSC classical music station and just let it run in the background most of the time while I live my life in the house, including when I'm "at work" online. That, plus a multi-disc cd player... good to go. "Dedicated listening sessions"... meh, sure why not, when the spirit moves me, lights low, a little weed and some chamomile tea, maybe a snuggle lover along for the ride.
and @noromance +1 Turn off the TV.
@curtdr it didn't take long to turn this into a race of who has more hours of "dedicated listening sessions" a day.
@curtdr , Like you, I've gotten to where when I'm not listening to something really enjoyable, I just tune my radio to KKJZ (88.1FM) and listen to jazz for most of the day. Life it good if you know what you've got and appreciate it. 👍
All the best,
