Scratch the build list above. I didn't read enough and jumped too quickly. After many days and 6-8 hours each and everyday reading/researching, I've had a change of mind. System will now consist of the components listed below. I also feel much more confident in this set up.
Decware Tori Mk4 int. amp
Decware ZP3 phono stage
Clearaudio Ovation TT
Zu Audio Omen Def MkII speakers
PS Audio P3 or P5 ac filter/regenerator
Clearaudio Double Matrix Professional RCM to keep the vinyl clean. Again, cabling will come and go till I find my flavour.
If I'm careful, I should be able to build this close the the 25k mark and should sound glorious. It may take a while, but I'll chime in and let you know how it sounds when complete.
