A solid tube photo stage around 1500
A friend of mine just got a Musical Paradise all tube phono stage built in China. He says that it is a great tube phono stage for the price and sounds real nice. Priced under $1,000 with shipping. 
Digital Cable... anyone compare Canare lv 77S to
I can mention that I have tried quite a few 75 ohm cables with BNC ends between my sacd/cd player and word clock like Audio Research, Audioquest, Wireworld and the 75 ohm cable that is made by Canare hold its own and is quite good for around $50.00.  
Speaker suggestions under 4k
Look up some Usher speakers, the older 6371, 6381 and 6391 were killer speakers and great bass, the newer Usher Mini Diamond 1 and 2 are more refined and sound great from top to bottom and won't break the bank

I also agree about the Griots Garage Best of Show Wax, I use it on my classic cars, and my audio equipment, turntables and speakers, and the finish is superb.

Thank you all for your input. 
Looking At CD Players
One that comes to mind is the Oppo/Modwright 105 player with outboard tube power supply. I have two of them and will be selling one of them. Probably one of the best sounding, not crazy expensive, cd/sacd players out there plus you can tube roll w...
