Amp Internal Wire

John Rutan of Audio Connection is whom you need to converse with. Also, I heard Dave Belles is coming out with a DAC in the near future.  
What do you consider the most when choosing a pair of speakers?
@toolbox149  IMO the lower midrange is more important than bass and treble in achieving accurate and realistic reproduction, where you hear the realism, especially with acoustic instruments.  
Best "Budget" / "bang for my buck" 2-channel amp and speakers can I get new?
Sorry, I cannot assist w/o knowing your budget.  
Cables recommendation
Innerconnects, spkr cables:  Audience OHNO Mogami or Belden: both equal in quality but have different sound characteristics.  Powers: Audience 24SE    
Billie or Ella? Maria or Renata? Technique or feeling?
A late posting by me. Billie Holliday "Lady In Satin" with Ray Ellis Orchestra.  The feeling in those aging textured vocals with marvelous backing.    IMO it was her best. Ella's "Songbook" will always be extraordinary.

Some people, and I say some, who purchased spkrs costing those figures are people interested in show and not music. God Bless people who buy them for the love of music. Not me. I have other interests that cost money. No dunderhead here.

In this order. With my components the speakers efficiency, vanishing act, it's lower midrange properties, does it move me and then it's appearance.
