Compared to most people here, I have a modest setup - Kenwood VR507 receiver, Michaura M55 (like Axiom M22ti) x 5, Sony SA-WM40 sub. It has served me well over the years. Recently, I have some disposable income and started lurking here again, and thoughts of an upgrade began popping in I am happy with my speakers but am thinking of getting a better receiver and sub (I hear SVS calling my name). But when do I reach the point of diminishing returns? Obviously it depends on the budget, but I have a feeling I'm getting sucked into the vortex yet again... reading forum posts, researching and pricing components, it can get pretty addictive Of course a big part of the thrill is getting new stuff and playing with it, but honestly people, how many of you have spent more time and money than you should have ?!
