After years of separates, I'm going integrated. Anyone else do the same?

Technics SL 1200GR with What Cartridge???
+1 for Nagaoka (MP-150 or higher)  
Need some help- Speaker choice for Schiit Aegir+ Freya+
Check out Tekton Impact Monitors. Very efficient, neutral and transparent to let the nice Schiit gear shine.  
Speakers: Anything really new under the sun?
Look up Tekton Design speakers. They use a tweeter array to reproduce killer mid range. For me personally after a long journey of listening to many many speakers I stopped after being dumb struck by the Double Impact. THIS was the sound I was look...

Tekton Design - New IRL Technology - Lifelike, Real, Immersive

Why People Like Tekton
The DI are big, ugly, and look intimidating in your living room, but if you can handle that they will send in missiles of pure sonic bliss straight into your ear canals.  
Subwoofer for music, how low?
+1 for distributed bass array If going Tekton, might as well get a couple (or 4) 2-10 subs from Tekton and yep those do go down to 20hz - which is an important thing for a sub to do in my book.  
What makes the biggest difference in sound quality?
Gonna go with the following: 1.) Speakers 1.5) Subs - DBA 2.) Room/Treatments 3.) Recording quality/Source 4.) Amp 5.) Pre 6.) Everything else
