I think we have all fallen victim to that line of thinking, to various degrees. We make the purchases saying we will sell the lesser of similar products, but we end up creating headphone museums, instead!
I like having the flexibility of changing up the signature for different types of music, but that has its downside, too, because freedom of choice can cause frustration.
When you get the T1, I think you will really find yourself in a quandary. Seriously, a T1 sounds very different from an LCD-2 and yet they are both very appealing.
I think of the T1 as "the technician" and the LCD-2 as "the artist." Accuracy vs. self-expression. One is immediately acceptable as "real," while the other is at the edge of being "surreal."

Of the gear that I have, the DACport LX (or DACmini CX' DAC section) + Soloist + LCD-2 is my favoirte all-purpose combination. I know I could use it to get a lot of enjoyment out of every genre of music to which I listen, without really missing any of my other gear. Logically, I am therefore convinced I should sell everything else, except perhaps one of my portable setups.
Tick, tock, tick, tock....
