Annoying newbie CD/SACD player question
Try cleaning the laser lens first.  That may fix your skipping problem, if that's all it is.  
Finally...subwoofer that's aesthetically pleasing!
Aesthetically pleasing? Highly questionable.  
Do You Buy Speakers Without Hearing Them?
Only once. Boutique brand (Salk) which had no dealers; only sold direct .  No regrets.  
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
Home theater, absolutely.  "Audiophile" stereo/surround?  Not so much. (Using JBL 212, 215, 225 and 18" sub w/about 3000 watts of power.  Hard to beat for home theater.

"Hardly Used / Less than 100 Hours / Took out for pics only"????
Only used by a 60 year old granny on Sundays.  
Help me spend $100,000 on a new system
1. Find a good audio dealer in your area. 2. Pay attention to what he/she/they tell you. 3. Enjoy your new system. (remember: $100K doesn't go as far now as it did when you were young and had better hearing!)  
power cable
Be open to the possibility that the new cable may not perform better than your current cables on either component; just because it seemed like "a deal" doesn't mean that it was one for your system.  
Prima Luna Vs Accupahse
Assume you're talking used Accuphase, since if you can't afford a $10K speaker you can't afford a new Accuphase either.  
My High End Audio Gear As A Long Term Investment!!!
Investment? Not hardly.  
Warm Up Time/Cost of Operation
Luxman Class A owner here, 400 watt dissipation when on. Usually allow 30 min warm-up; leave on most of the day on weekends.  Keeps the room nice and warm during the winter.  
Rel t9x or Rythmik F12G
Amazing how someone can state "already overpowering the room" without any evidence.  I'm currently using a REL S510, located in my room's primary bass node, which is located right next to my seating position.  Completely invisible with my Forte IV... 
New Speaker advice
At this point, forget the measurements and use your ears.  Except for the MoFi, the designs are all fairly similar, and it should come down to preference.  
Better hearing
Not likely, but perhaps your perception has changed.  
speakers for small room
Klipsch Forte IV or Cornwall IV.  Work great with sub, very dynamic, work well as near-field speakers when necessary for small room.
