That kind of problem is far from systemic. I do agree that a nice bundle of connectors like these should be made available for those of us who are starting like that, even if it means a slight increase.
It would be interesting to know how many went from separates-to-separates with A1400 and how many from integrated-to-separates (for the people I know on this forum, it is about 6-to-2 in favor of separates-to-separates, and I just counted you too!).
In any case, hopefully you will be hum-free soon and get to truly appreciate this beast!
