Haha I take it that it wasn't a horrible idea by the fact that you are considering selling your setup and switching to it? I'm still a little newbie when it comes to the high end audio scene but I am very interested in learning as the small jumps I've made in my quality of audio have been absolute mind blowing fun. I just don't want to spend too much too fast.
Are you thinking of trying it soon? If so please report back with results.
If not then perhaps I will just have to take the plunge and try it myself (although I doubt I would be able to properly balance it seeing as how I am new at this).
