I think it boils down to what sound you prefer. There is a difference in sound between them. I can not justify spending over 2200€ for such small difference, but others do..
I can, on the other hand spend 80k for expanding our living room to hold a grand piano, 2 BIG sofas, 12seat dining area and a big fireplace. But do I really need it? Of course not, but my mental picture of perfection "demands" it for me to be satisfied.
