Six rooms full of gear? I'd have trouble figuring out gear for more than two rooms. I guess I'm not a big dreamer.

No offense, but maybe if you asked for one system with a general price guideline, people might respond. Two systems at most, maybe an HT and a two channel system. But six complete systems with mutiple sets of speakers for each? Your post is kind of like asking people to research and write a volume of an encyclopedia....on to the next thread.
Unfortunately, having been laid off, I do have a bit more time on my hands these days that I would like.
It was written more as a part 2 to the the "hitting the lottery" thread and maybe I should have titled it more that way. I probably would have gotten better responses as well. However, after I wrote it, I realized that after 25 years in this hobby and after having so many hi end magazines and reading so many equipment reviews over the years that I too had a hard time playing the Audiophile Genie game.
I think it would be easier to take it in smaller chunks, say perhaps the top 6 amp/preamp/speaker combinations. In that respect, I would choose 3 SS systems and 3 different tube based systems for my 6 rooms.
1. Linn electronics, Spendor SP100 speakers, Harbeth HL5's
2. Spectral electronics, Vandersteen 5's, Thiel 3.6's
3. Motif electronics, ProAc Response 2's, Ref 3A's, REL subwoofer
4. Tektron tube amp/pre & huge supply of interchangeable 10, 45,50, 300b & 2a3's, Klipschorn and Cain & Cain Abbys
5. Berning EA230, TF12 pre, Quad ESL 63, JMR
6. Counterpoint SA4 OTL, SA9/11 pre + above spkrs
Even with this, I'm still missing a boat load of great gear from cj, ARC, ML, Krell, etc...guess I've actually read a lot more about audio than I've had the opportunity to hear or own systems, and while I'm satisfied with what I own, would still like to have the opportunity to hear other gear - which is what makes this hobby fun.
