Yeah, I totally agree. A lot of ppl get obsessed with having the next set of cans, amp, cables, chasing end game(s) etc instead of being happy with what they have.
I think there's a balance to be struck between buying stuff and settling on a certain setup, and then going back to concentrating on using the equipment for it's intended purpose.
I like having the next thing to buy lined up, but it's not to replace any of the main pieces (e.g. adding Mogami interconnects). In other cases I've added on a whole new set of components (e.g. turntable, integrated amp, speakers).
