All digital gear should be bought by weight - the heavier the better.

@asvjerry yeah, I was pop's "strong back" for many a year and odd job. 🤣
It took me about a week to disassemble and pack everything into their crates and boxes. (Interesting factoid: Those B&W's are shipped in Danish wood crates!) Thank goodness pop kept all of them. The LPs went into moving boxes of course. I hired day labor and a truck to help me get it all into storage in FL. Then I flew down later with my wife to rent a Sprinter type truck to drive it all up here to WA. Great trip! The day labor I'd hired to help me load the truck ghosted us so she and I loaded the truck in 95F heat and who knows what humidity. Love that girl! What a trooper.
I'm going to be 66 in January and after a career behind a keyboard, while I'm not as fit as I should be, nor am I as stupid as I could be. LOL Got here and hired some bodies to help me unload...
I was struggling moving my Coda CSiB around so opted for some much lighter SPL separates. Lighter was the case, not just in weight but sound too. Then, after the 2-week-old pre-amp started turning on and off by itself and then the power amp went POP, started smoking and lost the left channel, Now, I'm going back to the heavyweight Coda (now separates). Maybe harder on my back but much easier on my ears.
@musicfan2349 *L* I'm 71, and have a 'cut-off' of 1/3rd of my weight (135ish)....beyond that, a couple of younger emoloyees, hand trucks, dollies, and a Bobcat with forks and a boom if it calls for that....
If I needed the latter for, say, an amp...I'd obviously be planning to throw some wild-az party and it would be very loud....but exquisite, of course.... ;)
My main amp is the heavy at 45ish, and no real plan or interest in moving it..
Great that you and the spouse got to make a journey out of the trip home, hope y'all made some fun stops on the way. There's a lot of roadside distractions along the way, and a number of ways to travel by them. *S*
