No, it just doesn't have enough features to even consider purchasing yet.

Sell everything(ish) and buy modular? Yes. Kronos, no way.

What you want is a computer, not a Kronos.

I wouldn't sell EVERYTHING I've got, but I'd buy another one at the drop of a hat If I could afford it. :D

Every few years I sell off everything and start fresh, wouldn't do it for a kronos personally, but if it fits what you are looking for in a single unit then do what you think will make you happy and your workflow best.

Yes, I did think about it, actually. Would love to have a Kronos

What would you do with two that you couldn't do with one?

Nope i spent some time with a Kronos. Some very nice sounds and features yes but i was a bit underwhelmed by it and that boot up time @ over 2 minutes is a deal breaker for me. I'll stick with my Triton and its 6 sec boot time :)
Give me ambiguity or give me something else.
