If you put together a system that tells you the wood of Zappa's guitar, assuming that's even possible, it will sound terrible on nearly all classic rock or funk recordings. Way too bright and gritty sounding. I notice that you use a lot of words to describe listening to and the sound of music -- sweet, detailed, holographic, transcendent, rich and cozy. Don't get hung up on how audiophiles describe sound, it's a path to frustration. Take the time to figure out what sounds good to you using the type of recordings you actually listen to and enjoy. You may find that you end up spending a good deal less than what you have budgeted.
