Rhetorical question - Sell off or Keep (Generally speaking)


Hello Gents,

I just recently bought a pair of Kef LS50s (which I'm Luvin BTW).
So now I have a pair of Dynaudio Emit 20s sitting the floor in the back of the room.
I originally planned to upgrade to the Dynaudio Special 40s (another story all together).

I have nothing at all against the Dynaudio Emit 20s other than in my situation, the Kefs seem to be providing the next level of performance I was looking for. 

I haven't swapped in the Dyns since I have connected in the Kefs, could be partially a honeymoon period I get that. 

So the real question is -  Keep the Dyns (As a backup pair) or part ways and move on.  
I don't have another room I could create for the Dyns so I imagine they will be mainly idle. 

In the past I've parted ways when upgrading however this time I'm still trying to sort this one out.
Anyway I realize there are different schools of thought on this topic. Just curious what's your M.O. when upgrading.

Thanks,

Doug

There is no deadline, no rush, so hold on to the Dynaudio Emit 20s until you are SURE that you want to sell them.
Right now, you don't seem certain, so wait until you are certain.
I say keep both. I find keeping two different speakers allows you to have different flavors for different musical moods.
Generally it has taken me years to later decide I should have kept some bit of kit.
Unless I really want the money, I no longer sell anything.

I had a big pile of equipment I had saved for a few years which I finally listed here and sold them all within a couple of weeks.  Usually I sell off the old one after I am sure the newer one is better.  I did a lot of upgrades in the past 6 months to 2 different systems and the equipment I sold helped out a little with paying for the newer equipment.  We all know this is our sickness.

I do it all the time, think I should keep it, not use it for a while then sell it.   But somewhere down the road I say to myself I should have kept that.   Most recent example YBA headphone / DAC.   Great little unit that would have come in handy with my new Grados   
Better to sell anything that isn't being used. Value tends to drop over time. These things should be enjoyed, not hoarded.
