    How dull. Variety is the spice of life. Given the human attention span of about 20-40 minutes, that's about 14.5 hours of background noise, every day.

    Well I listen to about 12 hours of music a day and while I may not be concentrating solely on it all the time I probably spend about 3hours listening properly. The rest of the time I know a lot of the music that is playing very well so I am listening anyway in my head ;)

    I often have Radio 4 burbling away in the background, and it's comforting. I wouldn't pretend that I'm actually listening to most of it.

    I believe people listen to far too much music. It's bad for your brain, and it makes you lazy & fat.

    Ah that'll be why I'm fat, or maybe that's the beer. Thanks Bub, always good to have a doctors opinion :)

    Most hi-fi people are fat.

    I'm not fat, either. Play chess, read a book, go for a walk, anything...

    15 hours of music a day would drive me insane.

    Actually, even when I turn the Hi-Fi off, I still have music in my head. All the time. I wake up with a tune in my head and go to bed with one too. So it doesn't really make a lot of difference.

    Anything else in your head? Only joking. No I'm not, yes I am.

    recently i've thought about hi-fi very little and listened very little too due to work pressures keeping me out of the house however i expect that to change soon and as i work from home i'll be listening for much of the day (about 12 hours usually if previous experience is anything to go by). i'm starting to think a little more about the kit side of things now too - i might have a fiddle with some stuff but maybe not as i'm very happy with what i have and the sound it makes.

    when will people learn that:
    the only way to win thermonuclear war is not to play.
    you cannot extinguish a fire by throwing petrol on it.
    responding to one of bubs 'witticisms' only makes things worse.

    Not enough time listening to music - I can sneak an hour or two each evening. But, with life being as it is, work being as it is, music time is luxury, "Me time"; being married to a lovely lady who doesn't listen to much music outside of the car, I typically only get my "Music Hours" when she's out or watching TV.

    When in the office it's easy to post to forums and pretend to be working but not so easy to listen to music - and I can't concentrate on work when music is playing unless it's VERY quiet.

    So, yeah, in balance I don't listen as much as I'd like to - but given ideal circumstances I'd spend 2 or 3 hours a day listening, maybe more - reading, walking, cooking, jogging, gardening, sex, etc., these are all things that may well have a musical background, but my mind is elsewhere so that doesn't count ;)

    With bub on this one. If you are listening to 15 hours of music a day, and I mean really listening, then you are doing nothing else. Therefore what are you doing with your life?

    Otherwise most of it is background noise, such as radio two or the Simpsons.
