New Dynaudio Heritage Special..?..!
Steve Huff just wrote a review on these speakers.  Extremely positive review. 
Super integrated vs equivalent +$$ for new main system
I would look at a Pass integrated.   The Pass 60 integrated would drive your Harbeth's just fine. 
BEL 1001 MK5 driving Joseph Audio Pulsars
Definitely keep the BEL.  I owned one for about 20 years and wished I never sold mine.  I still look periodically for  Mk5 and would purchase it immediately if it popped up.  As you know the key is finding the right speaker match. 
The best TT system for under 30K
Anything Artisan Fidelity and a good performing arm.

If am not mistaken you can also purchase the Bakoon 13r direct from the manufacturer.  That might alleviate at least dealing with US importer. 
Shinjitsu Audio
There has been at least one professional review.  If I remember correctly it was very positive. 
Remarkably better sound possible with just 1 system component change?
I am not completely familiar with your preamp but I would look for the best tube preamp under 10k.  I bought a custom Deja Vu tube preamp about 10 years ago and it is the heart snd soul of my system.  LTA and Supratek  would be on my radar.

If it isn't way overpriced how could it possibly be good?

yyzsantabarbara,Update on your Coda when you get it! 
Best tube preamplifier for under $15k
Deja Vu is a great choice.  I also have a one of their custom preamps with a great mc phono section.  It's the heart and soul of my system. 
Is Carl Bernstein an Audiophile?
Ditto what Tony Kay said!

Willgolf,I am strongly considering either the Tube Master or the Berlin models.  Did you get a chance to listen to either of these speakers?

z32kerber,I have a simular situation as you.  I have a speaker that 89db sensitive and I have driven them with a 2a3 tube p/p 15 watt mono blocks.  I have been extremely happy with the organic sound and powerful sound I am getting from this setup.... 
Dehavilland Super 40 Mono n
Tvad thanks.  Kara's gear is ususlly  very musical.  These mono blocks will fit nicely in my room and the power will drive my speakers fine.  Just looking for a few who might of heard them.  Keep them coming.
