Just stereo. And through headphones so that I don't bother anyone else. Sony wireless at work and AKG Bluetooth at home.

I'm spending more time in front of my computer at work so I'm listening to a lot more music. Just listened to CSNY Deja Vu. It's even better than I remembered.

Nothing.  I'm a bit of an oddity amongst my musician friends.  Whilst they all have huge record collections and decent equipment to play it on, I have nothing.
I love live music but have little interest in anything recorded.

In my basement studio for rehearsal and practice (congas) I use old SR equipment that sounds better than all my current gigging gear but is too heavy for my aging back to carry to gigs anymore. EV QRX112 speakers with Crown K1 amp, JBL PRX618XLF sub, a bunch of bales of Roxul mineral wool set up in bass trap locations. For recording and mixing I use RME Babyface, Neumann KH120 nearfields and a home made Linkwitz Thor 12" subwoofer with an Adcom GFA-555 power amp. Sounds great in the 1 foot wide sweet spot. No room in the studio for my old MixWiz or need for all those mic channels, so that is in storage and for source/monitor switching and gain control I use a Midas MR12 and iPad or Android phone to control. The MR12 actually is great for a studio, lots of TRS inputs for computer, DIs, CD, phono preamp and can adjust volume and mix remotely when I am rehearsing or practicing along with recordings recorded at different levels, tiny size, 4 balanced outs for 2 different monitors.
Thinking of getting a big plasma screen as monitor to make it into a very small home theater/workout room.
Other than that, my wife and I usually just use our computers or phones with headphones or a JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker which I also use on my bike (bicycle). Not much time anymore outside work to listen to music at home. Maybe if I ever retire...

For quite some time I used two turbosound iQ8 tops and one iQ15b sub for the tv and stereo.

For quite some time I used two turbosound iQ8 tops and one iQ15b sub for the tv and stereo.

More stuff than any sane person would have in a home AV system...   :)

My general mood music is from the DirecTV feed and it hits all the rooms and patio, shop.  18" JBL 2245 sub in den, Polk 12" powered sub at the end of hallway for bedrooms, Polk powered 10" sub in the shop.  4 x DriveRack PA's in total, tri-amped den system, one for the tri-amped HT center, and two DR PA+ for the whole house system for sub alignment and level adjustment.  House system is crossed over at 120hz, patio has Polk Atrium 4 or 5's, don't remember - ended up going near-field on the patio, so I can run patio heaters and fans depending upon the season and hear the TV and music ok.  42" flat panel LCD in the shop, open large outside shop door and it can be viewed from patio.

Main den system is still in-work, vintage stuff.  Will be 4-way sporting a pair of JBL 2245 18's, 4 x JBL 2114 8's, JBL 2226 1" horn/lens & JBL 2404 tweets with a DriveRack 480 that I picked up on eBay - Phase linear Dual-500 I had restored for bottom end, Carver TFM-35 on low mids, Phase Linear 300 S2 for highs and a Carver TFM-6CB for the top end.

Built it over a 15+ year span - pretty happy with the house system - bathrooms, kitchen & bedrooms have in-wall stuff.  Shop has some Polk bookshelf's flying - 4 of them.

99.99% of the time it's in 2ch stereo mode.

Living Room:
Amazon Echo Dot + the DJ gear and about 7000 records + instruments and mics for jam sessions
Soundcraft EPM 6
VUE i-8a
VUE is-26a sub on aux
The bar is well provisioned, too.

Den:
Onkyo HTIB and Panasonic plasma screen. Everything turns on with one button. Could use better speakers, though.

Office:
Hafler 9505
PMC DB1 and TLF1
Lots of OC703 and Roxul

Everywhere else:
JBL EON ONE Pro out of rental inventory. This speaker is just great for everything fun related. Jam sessions, pool parties, drunken karaoke, whatever. . .

Speakers: Quad ESL63
Amp: Electrocompaniet AW250R
Sub: Martin Logan Dynamo 1500x
Room correction: Lyngdorf Roomperfect RP-1. I use it mostly as a glorified sub crossover.
Preamp/USB DAC: McIntosh D100
LP: Technics 1200
Riaa preamp: PS Audio NuWave

I've assembled this system during the years and bought used, ex demo stock, trade deals etc. so it's a lot of sound for the money.
The only thing I paid full price for was the Riaa preamp.

I try to avoid catching the disease we all fear...transferring our standards and values to our private space.
That said...I have a conventional 5.1 utilizing a pair of 35yr old Klipsch Heresy for l/r..and corresponding c/s/sub all Klipsch.
For the pool area and porch I have 3 BGW 750s and more Klipsch...Heresy Industrial Ported...and some all weather driven by a custom API 2520 line amp w/ variable stereo zone outputs...at present in need of a source.
Sitting upstairs un-connected is a pair of 3 panel Magneplanars...accompaning a DC300/IC150/meter thingie. Marantz tuner and Teac half track RtoR. The speakers were a gift to my friend...now deceased..by Cat Stevens..autographed

I listen to a lot of music all day at my desk so I just treated myself to a pair of Shure SRH1540 headphones and an XtremPro USB headphone amp. I'm loving the cans. I can wear them all day and hear things I missed with other cans without any ear fatigue.

At home, Altec Nineteens and a modern-ish Yamaha receiver. At the office, Klipsch Heresys on a Technics SA-500.
