I like to think I'm rich, but I'm not wealthy.

I have an extended family member who, when he got divorced many years ago, paid the ex $12 mil & $250K per year for life.

Such would not be the case if my wife & I divorced.

Well set up speakers can fix that problem.
Hell, these days most towers have sensitivity in the 91+ dB range. Can drive them with a small integrated if budget is a concern.

High percentage of loss? Both ears?
Technology has come a long way in the audiology department.

Not that there's any need to hear much above 15kHz but you should still be able to enjoy music if possible.

Music is great therapy for me.

Eh, I dunno, I was always into Jazz/blues/C&W/bluegrass, and damn little new GOOD songs for a long time there, so I wound up bored with it, kinda like many other hobbies....last time I went shooting, maybe 6+ years ago....and that was just an indoor pistol range....Went to the winter nats in Gainsville maybe a dozen years+ ago.....not been to a auto race since.....

as with any hobby, get burned out on it, with the exception of making my own car/modifications unlimited.....hobby car....

Yeah, you gotta do what makes you smile.

I certainly got sick of recycling the same old music as well but there is a lot of hidden gems out there that just don't get the attention the clown-ass rappers and one hit wonders that bring quick profits.

Some of the audio forums I'm on have sections that list new music that's worthy of attention. Some newer jazz talents that are exceptional.

Many forums frown on posting links to other forums.
If that's not an issue, I'll post up.
