A lot...I sleep with mine on with the music from my sound server/computer/life set on random (its kinda like listening to the radio but without commercials and listening to the same set of songs on loop). I also use my system for gaming if that counts for about an hour a day.
How much time I listen also depends on what you classifiy as music...My parents and sister don't think bands like Primus and such are music...

I wish I had the chance to listen to mine more to be honest, I listen to it every night for a few hours plus when I go to bed.

I would say 3-4 hours a day.

when he neighbours go out though ...

My GFP-565 DH220 (or LM4702 LatFET) and KEF system runs from about 7 in the morning to 8 at night (when the XYL gets home from the research lab). Mostly vinyl, WBGO, WNYC or WQXR -- the vinyl keeps me sane as I am forced to walk away from the bench when the record is at an end. WBGO is very easy to listen to during the day, or if I am commuting into NYC.

I have one Linn system on our little library -- since I acquired a TX9500 tuner I listen to this in the evening when I catch up on the papers. I also have a laptop in the library to see what's going on on various papers, or to check the upcoming programs on TCM !

...and then at the end of the day, Laura Ingraham is on WABC(delayed) I get my fill of talk-radio.

I wake up, first thing is to power it up.
I go to sleep, last thing is to switch it off... Sometimes

I don't listen at all if I am working on a composition, otherwise a hour or two a day. But I listen with my eyes closed (even at concerts) and can do nothing else at the same time.

... me too. I have to add my wife to that though. The problem is that they are always home when I am

This translates to about 30 seconds listening per month. I only need 12 LPs for the rest of my days on earth

Not very often at all, maybe an hour every few days.


-need better sound card
-need better amp
-need better speakers
-need more FLAC music!

In the state my system is in right now, it's only slightly better than your run-of-the-mill "mini system". Can't listen to it for long until my ears start to bleed. Most of that can be attributed to MP3 compression. Finding lossless audio is not easy (if you know any good source by all means send me a message!) and buying dozens or even hundreds of CDs is out of the question, I don't have thousands to spend on that, not to mention there's a lot of stuff you can't even find at the music store.

I'm in the process of building a better amp (2x UCD400). So that'll be one step forward. After that comes the sound card, and then speakers a year or two down the road.

I listen to my system every day, at least an hour per day. Until the wife comes home from work and wants it down or off.

I turn it way up when its just me ... to a point about ~3 to 6 db down from clipping.

JDDco: " ... My kids tell me that the music from the 70's is better ..."

My wife tells me that the kids at her job all tell her that the (redone) music from the '70's and late '60's is what they buy and listen to as well.

I buy nothing but DVD's [video and audio] of the old folks from the '60's, etc. = electric blues,R & B, R & R ... [ "... the audio resolution of a DVD-Audio disc can be substantially higher than a standard red book CD audio." ]
