I think it's just like any other hobby. If it doesn't interest you then you just never develop a passion for it. On the plus side for you, audio can be pretty abusive to your wallet so if it's not your thing, you might be luckier than me. lol I was exposed to "good" audio at an early age and it stuck with me. As a younger man, I couldn't afford high end gear so I settled for the best I could muster which really only produced loud noises. Now, as I've aged, my ears prefer certain sound reproduction and accuracy. Example: Young me probably liked loud metal tweeters chirping in my face because "louder is better." Modern me much prefers larger fabric tweeters for their smoother characteristics. However, I do make exceptions if/when traditionally bright tweeters are well-blended into the midrange. I.E. Klipsch RF-7iiiI never got into stereo/speaker upgrades. As long as the music exits the speakers without static I'm happy.
I wish. My wife is an accountant by trade and anything over $50 triggers an audit. I bought them in two separate transactions as you can see, and it just shows up as "Amazon" on the statement.
