My wife will switch on the TV for background noise. I've caught her listening to a CD on my stereo occasionally, but she says she doesn't understand the need for an expensive stereo. She'd have no trouble understanding if I wanted to spend similar amounts of money on a TV.
She was pleased with the Senhheiser ear buds I insisted she replace here Apple ones with.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
She used to just listen through her laptop speakers, but since she got a new Macbook Air she has discovered the joys of Spotify and Airplay through my system. She treat me to an entire Wham album a couple of days ago. Followed by Steps.

She uses the hi-fi. Mainly via the ATV.
She's becoming something of a pain. She has a fairly large music collection and she won't let me put it on her iPad at 320k (won't fit in lossless). She's been debating buying a 128GB iPad for a while, to fit it all on in 'CD quality'.
My wife wouldn't know how to access music on any of our equiptment, she listed to what I do. Or uses the radio in the car, she can operate that.lol

Just to redress the balance after that last post, I would like to say that my wife is cleverer than I am, works harder and earns more money than I do.
