Audio-Phile, derived from ancient Greek, it literally means "Sound Lover".What you describe is not an audiophile.. that is a music lover. An audiophile cares more about the equipment, the music is just an excuse.
I describe myself as an audiophile but I am not obsessed with gear and my replacement cycle is years long.
I can easily spend hours on a Sunday afternoon listening to music without thinking too much to the equipment.
I recently acquired some new gear after a 7 years hiatus when I didn't buy anything new, still regularly listening.
