It sounds like you are trying to talk yourself into something that you may not be happy with in the long run.
A very astute point Zarak.
But we all do it.
We all try to talk ourselves into what we think we need at some point. Then it simply becomes a matter of want and desire such that our wills collapse into submission. I have friends that change their components more often than i do socks.
I really do like the Halo amp. Don't get me wrong.
If i could find one for about $1200 Cdn instead of $1800, i would easily overlook its shortcomings.
Each piece of equipment may have its faults or tradeoffs. I'm trying to decide if this Halo has tradeoffs worth its price compared to some other units, which again have their own positive and negatives.
That's where the waffling comes in.
I'm really not in a rush. I can wait for next year's products to come out or last years' products to have new iterations with improvements and refinements. I would be surprised if this Halo line was not going to be tweaked this year. The Halo lineup is after all still quite new.
