SQ vs. Music


What percentage of the time do you you listen to your set JUST for the SQ and what percentage do you listen to your set JUST for the music? 
I know the obvious answer is you do both, but can you honestly answer the question?

Very thought-provoking response MC.
At this point in time, with all of the tweaking that's been done, I marvel at how real the music sounds.

I guess i am on the same boat and anyway sound is not music but music is also sound....

I must confess that for 2 years i look for the sound in my listening experiments but now passed a certain minimal  quality point, i am done mostly with the sound.... I dont even contemplate seiously an upgrade...

The piano i listen to now is a real one with the wished tonal timbre when playing notes.....I am conscious of the sound for sure but i listen now to the music .....

My best to you and to all....
I rarely listen to SQ:  it just creeps up on me sometimes, as in 'Holy crap, that sounds good'.

But on my crappy bedroom system--a cd player w/ a mixer and computer speakers--I will often adjust everything to make it sound as good as it can sound.   I admit, the 'quality of sound' is in this case likely more related to the quality of [I'll just call them ingested sound enhancers] than anything in the system itself.
Since childhood, music has been an overwhelming passion in my life.
Thats why it’s particularly disturbing to me when SQ becomes such a seductive force.
