Should an audiophile frost cookies while listening to a system? No.
Should he wrap packages? Definitely not.
Clean toilets? Bad acoustics, no.
Prepare a lasagna? No.
What should an audiophile do while listening to a system? Nothing.
The more important question is, "What should an audiophile's wife do while an audiophile is listening to a system?" In my personal experience, she should cheerfully frost the cookies, wrap the packages, clean the toilets, and make the lasagna. And then, in order to remain cheerful and altogether fabulous under circumstances such as these, she should blog about her heroism.
And that, my friends, is audio winning.
