have you treated your room for those Nordosts yet?

Make sure the amp/s are within about six feet of your speakers and no more than six feet from AC outlet/s. The ideal setup for those Compass Lake ICs is less than three feet between source, preamp, and amp. You could also get two sources and an integrated amp. I know each of those cables and cords will sound best if they are connected to something at both ends.
I own siltech Ls 120 g3,and from what Iam reading
on the nordost valhalla,they are both a
little bit bright .My speaker recommendation,
B&W, any dark sounding speaker,Ill go with tube
player.It seems to me money is not a problem.
Halcro amp and preamp.You might be able to get
away with the Amati, and the Parsifal,or Andra
Sorry, no experience here in regard to building a system from the ground up with the listed cables - however I may be able to suggest perhaps a better starting point (different cables to "sprout from") with a tad more info.
You might also consider basing the new system on "neutral" cables. In this case just check out what gear the local chain restaurants are using (certain that the seater-greeter will more than happy to supply this info).
It's too bad you already bought the I/Cs, P/Cs and S/Cs. It would have been good if you had taken the contact enhancer your going to use and your favorite RCA plugs and spade connectors to put on the ends of the cables you were considering.
It would have also been useful to contract the power company that feeds AC into your home and to have had them run dedicated lines that mimic your AC into the audio shop you were auditioning at. Then, within a 2 to 3 square mile area, ask all the business's to cease operations that require any AC usage for about 4 hours while you audition stuff.
A little more time and effort but .Oh well. :o)
Hope I said something,
