My BIL has one of these.  Brilliant value for money.
Audiophile: There is almost no other group that prides themselves more on wasting good money on utterly worthless ****, and then trying to furiously blow smoke up their own ass to justify it.

Free your mind...and your ass will follow.

I'd consider one depending on what price you expecting them to land at?

I have no indication that there would be any improvement in the cost at this stage, so pricing on website would be what you should budget on.
Saving possibly on shipping? This may be nullified by import duties.
For now, just feeling for interest levels.

There's nothing wrong with your system, you are just listening to wrong music on it.
