PhD, AuD, Masters

I have been practicing for about 2 years and am tossing around the idea of 
returning to school (yes, some would say that I am crazy!)  Eventually I 
would like to either teach audiology and/or own my own practice.  If I get 
my PhD, I assume that I would have access to either option, but will the AuD 
be an acceptable teaching degree?  Or, once the AuD gets off the ground, 
will it be like a masters level audiologist in a university now (only able 
to supervise or teach undergrad classes)?

How about the time commitment for PhD? For how many years can I expect to be 
locked in a basement studying?  

I am not looking for money, but will the increase in pay and the increase in 
the potential jobs be worth the time, money, and energy put into another degree?

I have been kicking this around since graduate school, but I always assumed 
that I would go back for my AuD.  Now, I am not sure.

Any and all opinions are welcome and appreciated.
