New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

For me, it is a matter of priorities

For a budget that's not unlimited, you must necessarily make some qualitative trade offs with your component selection when using five sets of everything vs. two. And as already observed, the range of available recordings (that don't sound hokey) is also pretty much limited. I've grown very fond of not having to spin disks any more using my computer and renderer based setups.

I've heard a pretty good MC setup (Harry Pearson's "Super Maggies") and while it did some things very nicely, I always preferred listening to the "big" Room 3 two channel systems.

The space and cost for upgrading the main system to MC using the same gear would be prohibitive for me. I have MC capability with my HT using an Oppo player, but admittedly don't use it frequently in that manner.
