I have seen pics of your stuff. I bet your best system sounds great-probably better than mine. Besides, I used retail numbers and counted crap like cables, etc.I spent Christmas of '91 in a cabin near Gatlinburg and it was quite lovely.
My best system represents (good way of putting it) less than half of what yours does (let alone $50k) and yet it totally enchants me, just draws me right in completely. There is magic to be found at many price points with a little thought, experience, luck and experimentation.
