How often do you guys upgrade your equipment ? How old is your stuff ? When the budget allows ? When the WAF approves ? When new format (SACD, 7.1, DPII, etc) comes out ? Or does anyone wait til it breaks ? Receivers ? Amplifiers ? Processors ? Speakers ? I would think that a speakers don't change that often, so buy what you like and stretch the budget more here and same probably true with the amplifier. As formats change, it makes the other electronics age faster. My speakers are 12+ years old. But of course I am dying to upgrade them.
