Picking Speakers 20k-30k
If I had to choose B&W 801 D4 Walnut finish. The design and look does it for me. If not those, 2nd option is JBL K2 S9900.    
I can't go for that.
Hall & Oates my favorite band all time.  So many hits and so enjoyable to listen to.  Guaranteed to be played at any of my BBQ,  4th of July is coming.    
Wharfedale Elysian 4 Incredible build quality and sound, but made in China.
@cd318 . I buy what ever the wallet fits and agree with you. The world is globally sourced with so many MFG. Consumers are well educated today and know a good buy when they see one along with using the judgement of diminishing returns.

@cd318 ,  Some things can be judge by price, but for luxury goods like audio equipment.  I think its highly overrated/marked up in price as these equipment just play music.  How much better each amplifier, DAC, speaker, cables are?  It will be up... 
user poll on seperates vs integrated
I barely heard a difference if any from.the Luxman L590 AXII vs M900u & C900u. Im sure there people convince themselves due to the price difference, its a pchyological thing.  Like a pre amp, heard a 10k vs a 1k one and I heard zero difference...

Economies of scale. If it was made in the UK or US. $25K  
Experience with Luxman L-550 AXII
I have the 590AXII, its not a warm amp. Its a neutral amp that matches well with easy to drive speakers. The amp is very refined and detail, I've alwasy found Klipsch speakers to sound a little bright due to the horn tweeter.  You cannot compare a... 
the big one: how do you choose speakers? By what features, data?
@grislybutter , like anything in life.  Its the price point that make people wonder. < 500, no one cares >2500, people are reading reviews and studying for the SAT >5000, they need to ask their wives for permission >10K, buyers rem...

the big one: how do you choose speakers? By what features, data?
@grislybutter , its an important factor, no one wants to spend XXX amount dollars on something and its ugly, you have to stare at it.  For me sound will be sound, how detail and refined will also depend on the amp and souce.  Call me shallow and m... 
How does one pick in this situation?
Just buy and try if its within budget.  
the big one: how do you choose speakers? By what features, data?
By how it looks.  
Why do almost all women today hate home audio?
1. They listen to music and not the equipment. 2. JBL Bluetooth speaker does it job for $200 3. Dont want clunky items in the house 4. Go back to no. 1  
Denon PMA-A110 110 Anniversary Edition
@jond , @nick1979 The real question on this is can four Burr Brown PCM1795 DAC Chips sound better and provide a deep soundstage?  I've never owned a Denon equipment before.  But this would definaltey be one of them for sure.  For the price, this w... 
Denon PMA-A110 110 Anniversary Edition
@jond @nick1979  meant to say 4 DAC chips The PMA-A110 comes with a Quad D/A converter which uses the Burr Brown PCM1795 chip which operates in a quadruple configuration for "optimal" high-grade sound. Each channel has two PCM1795 chips working ...
