Streamer choices and help
I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a used Aries.. I like the Aurender and the Lumin but neither have Wifi and I haven't a way to get ethernet cable to the location, and I'm not interested in some ethernet Wifi converter. So the Aries should ... 
2000-2500 USD budget for an integrated amplifier. Do amplifiers sound the same? :)
So the OP bought a Hegel.. not much reason now to offer opinions. 
Audioquest Niagara 7000 hum/buzz
I just read through most of this. And I don’t understand why you’d open up a $8000. power conditioner and fiddle around modding it? At the very least you’ve hurt it’s value and made it much less desirable on the used market. I honestly don’t blame...

Most “disappeared” speakers.
Dynaudio, Proac, Harbeth. Setup and room are super important

Beware the audio guru
Wow. Last time I listened to music it was because I like music and it’s fun and nourishing of the soul. The pursuit of great or perfect sound, the hobby of playing with toys and don’t fool yourself expensive audio equipment are toys, for boys; is ... 
Bookshelf Speakers - $500-$900 range
Proac Studio 100, Kef R300 
So just to be clear, you sent some expensive stuff, to someone you didn't know without being paid for it first? And this makes it Thailands fault?  
I'm selling speakers for the first time and concerned about fraud
Didn't  Audiogon offer an escrow service at one time? In any case wire transfer is the best bet
