    question, i.e. survey,
    how many people who own hi-fi listen to music and how many do not bother but almost always listen to their hi-fi? some of whom i know listen to what their hi-fi is or not doing ! even though there is nothing wrong wit the way it portrays the way the recordding that was mastered is not perfect "nothing was ever perfect" and spend most of the pleasured little time hearing your favourite piece of music and enjoy, does any one have friends that come to listen to music in your house and end up playing music they brought with them and you get the impresion that is going to be a great night of musical pleasure, plenty of RIOJA and whatever, only to find they become reviewers on their own little world? MORE RIOJA PLEASE, over to you.:)

    Mine serves lots of purposes.
    If I'm not being self indulgent and immersing myself in a listening session I'll probably have the radio on as background music or chat.

    So I'll play music or just listen to something like Steve Allen on LBC in the mornings :)

    steve allen cracks me up, then nick ferrari stops after james o'brien, normally while i relax is jazz fm , the hi-fi is almost on all day as backround , only when i want to listen to one of my albums that comes to mind that i just lock my self in and forget the world exists,

    Used to be HiFi, now it's most definitely music. No plans at all to upgrade for the foreseeable.

    Just because one upgrades doesn't mean it isn't about the music, by any means.

    I think i may be guilty of this, i tend to compare a lot rather than enjoying my music

    I registered to this forum because of this post.
    After having succeeded twice at diyaudio.com, albeit it took a few years, I actually blocked it at my router because they didn't go further than fine equipment. Because, I just didn't need a triplicate set of fine equipment. And I certainly didn't need equipment for specs. There was so much fine assistance, but what there wasn't is a focused direct path towards enjoying music. I wouldn't have got there without their help; however, it has come time to jam out and enjoy the music. They're not focused on that, primarily.
    Unfortunately, I am not equipped to answer your question, because I have no idea if someone else would define my own equipment as hi-fi. After some years, I earnestly hope that someone defines the equipment that I enjoy as a surprisingly high quality, high resolution, example of mid-fi equipment; and, I hope they mention the pleasant/relevant tone (which was arranged because I needed it). Well, at this point, the finest mid-fi available is what I desire and what I probably already have.
    On some of the questions to your post, what I can say is that hi-fi isn't a bad thing, does exist and the actual price is smaller than sandwiches to fill houses with high resolution audio; although, the price to fill airplane hangars and larger size areas with high resolution audio is just awful. The thing is that Watts and Price does not relate to audio quality--no effectiveness whatsoever.

    I listen to music on my High Fidelity System, I never play the TV through it.
