I wouldn't give up too quickly on your hardware, unless you really want a change. It's designed to be serviced and last a good long while.
But if you want something different, go for it. Home AV and lighting is a toy, IMO, have some fun with it.
Though if WAF is high, and your sports or stories are critical, then hire someone. You can get pretty close, though, with DIY, if you put the time and effort into it.
Crestron is in an odd place now. They're releasing software that provides for very easy installs, with very simple programming, that may not provide the installer with much margin - for basic installs. Google Crestron Pyng. I haven't gotten my head wrapped around it myself, yet, hard to understand the business model.
