I’ve heard it said that if you don’t listen to your system for at least three days, you will appreciate it more than before. I find I enjoy at least a couple of hours of listening a day during the week . Could you go a week without ? I might take a vacation to try this. :( Also you can’t go record shopping either.

I often go 2 or 3 days without listening. Last couple of weeks I've been bingeing. Life's like that.

Could work both ways, you might come back to it and appreciate it more, or .... less. :shock:

Maybe...... :D In reality the only way I go three days without listening is if I take a trip.

I was once a month without a system and my teeth were start to shake, my hair got more grey, I could not see well and I lost my appetite for sex....definitely do not want to go through this again...

I'm on vacation right now and starting to miss music through my mains. Also feeling anxious to try a new pair of speakers that are coming by the time I get home. The first listening session after a break is sugary sweet but my ears probably appreciate the break.

Well I hope that this is true, on Tuesday i start a 16 day road trip with my daughter and the tunes will come through an 8 year old cell phone on Spotify to a blue tooth Braven speaker, all I have to say is the scenery better be dam good.

It happens occasionally. A fly-in fishing trip meant no music for a week.
A change in meds has the unfortunate side effect of mimicking a head cold. I'm all stuffed up and my hearing is screwed up to the point that it's difficult to hear anything and what I do hear sounds muffled.
It been like that for ten days now, time to see the Doc and get my hearing back.
