    No that's alright. I tend to think I'd rather be listening to my hi fi when cooking etc, then something which doesn't sound as good. i agree listening to hi fi is best done sitting in the right spot between the speakers like I mostly often do, but I can enjoy it just as much when bumbling around my flat doing different things, because if you have good soundstage the sound is all over the place anyway.

    Hi Jamie,
    I'm down in Brighton a lot and will take you up on that sometime. Do you know of anyone else in the area who is very into hi fi. Your offer to me extends to yourself too, if you want to come and check my stuff out. As I say I'm in Haywards heath. Listen to lots of different music. Maybe it would be good to get a group together first following further interest here. Simon

    Same here, point i was trying to make was, we still listen. Many friends of mine seem to be completely unaware of the music , in that i would say" that was a great track", them " oh what was playing, i wasn't listening ".
    I am not saying to listen to music you have to sit in one spot and give it your full attention. Just that there are many people out there who would turn a radio on, or Pop a CD into their player and not even listen .

    The chaps over at The Audio Standard are having an ASBO (a southern bake off) which might be of interest.

    As an aside I think people now are surrounded by music, it is everywhere and has become like wallpaper. Just another element in whichever situation they are. Friends think I'm weird as I hate the music in my local pub, the. Jukebox plays over random rubbishy speakers stuck at awkward angles around the place. It makes a truly awful racket and is like fingernails on chalkboard to me. However I'm the only one who seems to care. I'd rather have no music than listen it. It isn't even conducive to the atmosphere of the place as people have to shout above the tinny din when chatting.

    Most folk have become so accustomed to that way of hearing music they don't give it a second thought. The guitarist in my band has several radios on at once in his house, all bloody day and night long, sometimes all on different stations. It drives me up the up the wall and he doesn't get it. He's happy because he has music in every room. None of it sounding very good. He doesn't own a TV so listens a lot of music. I wonder if that makes him any less of a music lover than me?
