For me the biggest limitation is the recordings and wanted to have some funds left over to support the arts. Yesterday I threw out a recording of Mahler Symphony No. 2 not because of the performance but the engineering of the CD was so bad. It was on 2 disks and the first disk was just 20 minutes long and the second disk was chopped up into so many parts even a track break in a middle of a song. Just horrible! It was just a cheap used CD so I did not lose out much. I thought about having a 300B based amp but recent health issues is taking up the funds. The key thing I can say is just to have fun and enjoy the company and happy in spite of the limitation that life sometimes throws in your path. I think that the many posts here and the talk about food are showing off the fun we are having.
