That's an insane amount of money. I think the average income for the middle class in my country is only USD 10K (annually)... But you can hire a full time live-in maid for USD 250/month.

100% agree with this.

I started out thinking I needed separates for my 212s. Now, I am back to just using a receiver.

Another option would be to get Nyal to do the whole acoustics design for your room, then have your GF's cousin build it according to his plans. Compare and see if it makes sense in 'savings'.
