I'd say if it's impossible for you to make it to Dallas this weekend to hold off on anything big until March if you can. There's going to be a ton of good gear there to try that could be considered the next step up for you. Auditioning stuff is great when you never get the chance, and it'd be a shame to be broke right before you go to a meet because you bought something new a week before.
I made that mistake 2 years ago at the first Austin meet.

My wallet is already hating me, I am sure it will leave if I try to step up to hi-fi.
