Default Are desktop speakers more imporant than your main speakers

I think so in many ways. I spend a lot more time at my desk at work listening to my Xhifis powered by iTunes than I do in front of my Wilsons. That's not to say my Wilsons aren't better - they are by a country mile but the question is - how do you listen to your music these days.

Ever since I built my theater, I listen to a lot more music from my Request server through my big PSB inwall speakers in my living room. I made up some cool, loungy playlists. A few others with classical guitar etc... They all have been pretty happening to listen to when I get home after work.

When I want to be blown away - I go to the big theater but for most of the hours I listen on my desktop system.

How do you listen?

How do you listen?


Eight to ten hours a day at the office and I listen most of the time that I am not on the phone, at a meeting, at lunch, or in the boys' room. My office rig is a MacBook Pro through a Scott Nixon USBTD DAC, a Luminous Audio Axiom passive preamp (for volume control), NHT M-00's, and pointlessly expensive cabling and power conditioning. It's kind of an "in your face" sound because, well, it IS in your face, so it's not remotely realistic or even a preferred vantage point for listening, but it's not fatiguing and it works nicely at the low volumes at which I have to play things. Most of my source stuff is legal downloads of MP3s and AACs from iTunes, eMusic,, and artist and label sites. Of course, it does not compare to my home rig (which does not compare to YOUR home rig), but it gets me through the day.
