For gear alone (neglecting room) that would be beyond my needs. I don't think it is necessary to spend that much.

Well while I do agree that you can get good sound for less, I will try to answer your question.
Analog front end:
Basis 2800 Diamond Signature w/ Calibrator base.
Basis Vector 4 tonearm
ZYX UNIverse S-SB phono cartridge
Walker Ultimate Motor Drive
Walker Reference Phono Preamp
Digital front end:
Rega Saturn (what's the point? Save $$$ here).
Verity Audio Parsifal Ovation
VAC Phi 300.1 amplifier
VAC Phi Beta preamplifier
(4) 30 amp dedicated lines with Oyaide R1 outlets.
(2) Bybee Super Effect power conditioners
I/C's: Jade Audio Hybrid
S/C's: Nordost Odin
P/C's: Stealth Dream
I think I may now be well over $100K, but I'll bet it would sound fabulous.
Hummm, let me see...
I woud start with Verity Audio Parifal Ovations..teathered with Transparent Musicwave Ultra Speaker cables....
Amp would be the NuForce 9 SE V2 with a Pass Labs X1 Pre Amp with Crystal Cable Reference IC between everything....and Crystal Cable Reference power cords and a Magic Audio Mini Stealth to clean up the inflow of electricity...
Digiatal would be the Cary 306 Pro...and to top it all off, I would get a MacBook, Bel Canto 24/96 USB Converter and plug it into the DAC of the Cary...to be sure I have enough space, I would have to a something like a Licie 1TB External HD for my music storage....
Yup, that is what I DID and I couldn't be happier....actually, I am looking to change out the amps this year. Total retain is below 100K though, I suspect it is closer to $80,000.00....so with the extra I went ot Alaska and Costa Rica...blah blah..blah...
