Best Bang for your Buck DAC ?
If using XLR connections, probably nothing better than schiit Modius DAC for $199. Measures insanely well which is what I look for in a DAC. 
Tekton Double Impacts
For HT get the best center (and Sub) you can afford. Most of the sound will be coming through the center. The rest of the speakers are used for mainly ambient effects. I've heard emotivas best center is really good, if DI center is too much. 
MM Phono preamp under $200 Recommendations
Schiit Mani, or Cambridge DUO - DOU is currently the leader over at ASR for best measurements (Although they have not done a ton of Phono stages at this point) 
Schiit Sol turntable owners out there?
If my Technics bit the dust I would be all over this. Seems like a tremendous TT for the Money.

Tekton Design Moab
MC, does the DBA make that much of a difference in the bass considering the Moabs already have 4 12 inch subs (already spread out significantly due to the height of the speakers)? 
REVEL performa3 f208 or TEKTON Moab
I stopped auditioning speakers after hearing the Tekton DI. They are so good no need to look any further. The price is just icing on the cake. +1 for Tekton.(I really hope Eric doesn't raise prices soon) 
phono preamp < $500
Cambridge Duo or Schiit Mani 
Blue Jeans Cable Sound Good???

Amazon doesn't transfer bit perfect out usb to the DAC (unless something has changed). That ticks me off.
