I don't think this a stupid question, but any question might open you to stupid answers
I have a 'HT' for want of a better term that is focused not on movies but on Hi Res music. Now please don't ask me to define what that is, there is a whole (closed) thread here about that.
I play music from a PC (mostly Mch) and have all kinds of info text files and album art / booklet scans with every album on my HDDs, that I can watch on my TV (or not) while the music plays. Sometimes I watch the on screen player's graphic equaliser checking for clipping etc.. But I really detest those on screen swirly-gig things that are supposedly generated by the music, you know like on cheapo media players like from Microsoft and the like?
I also use, to some extent, the on screen menus on Audio BluRays and DVD-As or music on DVD-Vs, some of these may also have concert video footage too, but that is a little different to what I assume you are asking about. Once I've used the menu to select quality of audio and track or whatever then I usually don't watch the screen; then I might doze off for a while, but that never bother's me, no audiophile guilt over that
Mostly, I really do focus my attention in the music and while it might transport me to 'other-where' (isn't that a major purpose of music) I'm not sleeping. It's more like meditation and as a practised meditator I guess I find it easy to focus my attention like this. It must be difficult for non-meditators who are constantly bombarded via media of all kinds, from all directions, constantly competing for their attention to be able to single-mindedly focus on anything for any length of time. Such is the state of modern man in modern society.
I think a lot of audiophiles like to make use of their girlfriend 'lefty' to give a hand to their other friend 'righty' while listening to music. Isn't that the definition of Audiophile?
Please reverse gender where appropriate.
