With basses, they either say, "take me home," or they don't. We've all bought and sold basses that we eventually land up buying again (for me, 3 StingRays and 3 Precision style and 2 Jazz style basses through the years), but this is seldom the case with amps and speakers! I am forever swapping that stuff in and out, and it never pains me to do so! I've never pined away for a long sold amp in the way I have for some of the basses I've owned and sold. *sigh* I hate amplification.
