Is It Time To Sell My Vinyl Rig?

Hey All,
There once was a time when I looked forward to shopping for arcane mono classical and jazz vinyl. The anticipation of hearing a newly cleaned recording from 1957 that I didn’t realize existed until just a few hours prior. The satisfaction of owning 200 plus records. But now since I’ve upgraded my DAC and Transport, I’ve become disenchanted with vinyl. It still sounds musical but not nearly as close to a live performance as my digital setup. So I’m now I’m thinking about selling my ASR Mini Basis Exclusive MK 2 phono preamp and my modified Thorens TD 145 with AT 33 mono anniversary cartridge. I could put the money towards a surgical procedure that I’ve been putting off. Will I regret this afterwords? I don’t even know how much to ask for the equipment or whether someone would even take an interest in it. Any ideas out there?
Hi OP,

Great Idea. Happy to help fellow Audiogoner in need.  Good luck with your surgery.

Sleep Apnea can kill so get a solution that works.

Do I follow this correctly?

Comparing stereo digital to mono analogue, right? 

Interesting comparison. 

Some old vinyl is just that... poor mastering, poor recording process, and worse, too many pressings per... I have a few direct disks that stun me regularly with their presence, detail, and sheer impact. 
My secondary-favs are some digital recordings (there were a few great ones) that were then sent to vinyl with love and care. 
I want a better streamer/DAC also, but how I listen to that source is vastly different than vinyl. 
Just to clarify a bit, I would to some degree regret selling my table and phono amp. Additionally, I'm not comparing mono analogue to stereo digital, rather I'm saying that the quality of my digital front end is so good, that I might not miss playing vinyl all that much. I am limited based on the quality of tonearm, cartridge, etc... If I had the flagship ASR phono stage, a six thousand dollar table and a three thousand dollar cartridge, the competition between digital and analogue would be tighter. Would I prefer to have something versus not having something; that answer to that would likely always be yes.
"There are records that goes for £1000+ each!"

I took that into account. That would be 1000 records for a million, assuming each record is priced that high. Over 15 years, it is one record sold every six days, or so. So a bit more than one a week. That would certainly make it for less demanding work with packing and shipping. If that were a case, that warehouse for 1000 records would not be that large. Slightly larger closet, if even that much. Maybe "warecloset" instead of "warehouse".

Of course, if a person bought real warehouse full of records, let’s say 100 000 of them to sift through and look for those that could be sold for £1000 each, it would make sense, but it would bring us back to a lots of work.

Assuming that a person works from Monday to Friday for those 15 years, she/he would have to check about 25 records a day. For a work day of 8 hours, slighly more than 3 records an hour. Slightly less than 20 minutes per record.

During that time, a person can pick those expensive ones and sell them, assuming they sell as soon as they are found in the warehouse. Packing and mailing them will take some tome away from checking what is in those 100 000 records so it will have to be more than 3 per hour checked.

Still, it does not seem to be that great of a business plan as records bought must have cost some money, too. Not to go into storage space, advertising, etc. And, of course, in my example no millionaire paid any tax anywhere. For that, to become a millionaire, a person has to increase all the above numbers by whatever tax rate is.
