Take your time and enjoy what you learn via the differences. Just make sure there is only one new variable at a time or everything become difficult to sort out. Synergies are crazy good when achieved. But deciding to change ic's before pc's will lead to different choices then when you change the pc's first.
Wonder what the best way to go is. I believe everyone changes their ic's and spkr cables first because this has been done the longest before people used after market power cords
