Building an audio career... the long way!

Building an audio career... the long way!

What advice would you guys give to someone who has recorded for many years for free but wants to turn pro, with a focus on Classical and Jazz recording? Do I need make a $20k investment and replace all of my gear to be credible / get gigs? Is it better save and invest in steps, or would you just get a big loan?

My current gear list:

Logic 8
Apogee Ensemble
Event Asp6(2)
A Designs Pacifica (2 channel)
Peluse 2247LE
AKG C414B-XLS (matched pair)
2TB RAID 5 HDD via eSATA Expresscard 34
Presonus Firestudio (backup)

Heres my current gear replacement / LUST list:
(Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to try before I buy, so I have to go off recordings I've heard. I know its BAD, but I have no choice at the moment...)

Event Opals (2)
DPA 4006(2) ORTF
sE RNR1 (2) - love all the clips I've heard, especially on pianos and b.sax! Thinking of using them for blumein
HD24XR - for backups

What do you guys think?
