Transport Recommendations
@gnoworyta - owned my AudioLab 6000CDT for a couple of years now. Never had a problem with scratching, but I can see and understand the concern. Some see it as a "potential" problem. Some see a tray as a "flimsy problem" waiting to break. There ar... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
So well said @puptent     
Transport Recommendations
+5 for the AudioLab 6000CDT. Brilliant simple unit. Designed as a transport only. Excellent power supply. Sound is clean and immediate. I have not had a single CD that would not play in it regardless of condition or origin. I can't see why you wou... 
list of speakers
Don't know if you have done this, can't do this or don't want to for what ever reason but, is it possible that this data base could be open to this community for additions/edits like wikipedia? Could make your job a lot easier and grow fast.   T... 
15 in full range drivers
From what I'm hearing (from my sealed box TangBand W8-1808 single drivers with dual SVS SB1000 pro subs), full range single drivers have opened my eyes/ears to a more liquid sound stage and depth i haven't heard before. Truly unbelievable for just... 
Help me spend $100,000 on a new system
If I was in your situation I'd take a year off and demo/listen/research at dealer(s) letting them know what your plans are. AND, during this 1 year invest that $100000 in a GIC. If it's locked away, your forced to take a year and really figure out... 
Is my amp good enough?
@neversatisfied  I really don’t want to rip mine out as they are nicely installed as far as all the wiring goes.   How about take your existing speakers to A/B with the new speakers (if dealer allows). Use their same electronics to compare. Thi...

Dual SVS1000B pro. I have and freaking awesome. And on BF sale right now.  
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
My custom sealed box full range single driver  (TangBand W8-1808) with dual SVS subs are currently my end game.  They continue to blow me away with incredible mid/high range clarity, sound stage, depth and top end sparkle. I had no idea hifi coul...

Upgrading preamp. Best for under $1K
I’d give the Parasound New Class 200 Pre a try (not the integrated option). It has tones of flexibility and sounds real good,,, and is within your stated price or less if used (alot of mentioned options are beyond your stated price).  PS: and th...
