I was a hoarder when I live in the States, well sorta of a hoarder because I do flip gears but I was always buying and the house is always a mess. Before I leave for Taiwan to take care for my aging parents (89,91 years old) I sold off everything and give away the rest that was hard to sell. Now two years later in Taiwan I have bought a Marantz CR-611, SA Mantra 5 speakers, SA Aura 1 speakers, Monitor Audio Radius 380, Modi Uber 2 Multibits DAC, SMSL M8 DAC, Teac TN-300 these were all new gear. I also bought Sansui B/C 2102, Sansui AU-X901, Sansui AU-X711, Pioneer C-90, Marantz Model 250M, Marantz 16D, Sony CDS C333ES, Primare T21, KEF 105/3 and Spendor SP3/1P. I also just bit on Ebay on some Proton receiver because my tech has one and it sounded nice and I want one. None of these gears are cheap here, I think its twice of the prices in the U.S because the government here adds a 37% tax on imported stereo stuff. I just realize this morning that I have a sickness and also the some of the Akers have this problems too. The question is "is there a cure for this buying sickness"?
