When it comes to the brand and of course the highest end product, cost is always a subjective matter. I noticed you said that your new shop was involved with a lot of shows and that's what's peaking your audio interests? I would definitely go to a couple shows before I would make a very expensive purchase. You may end up spending a lot less, especially if the brand you demo'd is a relatively inexpensive brand! Your own ear will let you know what you like and plus, a lot of really cool people can be met at shows and their personal experiences with the products could help you make a more informed decision.
Don't forget that when you decide on a final set-up, start a build log, everybody here loves pictures! And if you have any specific questions, do a search, and then start a new thread if you can't find an answer, or PM me and I will help with anything you got.
