I'll suggest, yet again, that you'd do better spending that money to upgrade your speakers.

Yes you have said that more than once Jonathan, fair point. :lol:

But assuming I can trade-in my MIMC Star (basically brand new after SoundSmith repair) for, say, $1000, then I'm getting a Sussurro for $1500. I don't know what big step up in speakers I could take for that same outlay?

I agree with Jonathan. When one looks at the list of your components , the one that is lagging behind are your speakers. I would start the arduous process or auditioning as many brands/ types of speakers that you can or go internet with a return policy- ascend acoustics, salk, focal, joseph audio, devore fidelity, dali, spendor , harbeth to name a few that would be on my short list. Speakers as you know are highly subjective - there is no one size fits all. The proper speakers and set up however can make a HUGE difference . I know that the ls50s are well regarded and are stereophile class A, but I wouldn't get hung up on that rating too much to the point you convince yourself that I can't do better for my system.
