|Help me spend $100,000 on a new system|
1. Find a good audio dealer in your area. 2. Pay attention to what he/she/they tell you. 3. Enjoy your new system. (remember: $100K doesn't go as far now as it did when you were young and had better hearing!)

|Prima Luna Vs Accupahse|
Assume you're talking used Accuphase, since if you can't afford a $10K speaker you can't afford a new Accuphase either.

Not likely, but perhaps your perception has changed.
|speakers for small room|
Klipsch Forte IV or Cornwall IV. Work great with sub, very dynamic, work well as near-field speakers when necessary for small room.
|Question about suitable fuse metals|
Burn baby burn! Disco inferno! (it only takes once...)
|3.2 Channel with upgraded L/R or 5.2 channel?|
Unless you've got a humongous room, those REL 212s already have your room well-pressurized with bass energy; adding more subs would primarily increase ambience, so you don't need to go big to get the job done. Echo the recommendations regarding t...
|Service After the Sale|
Definitely first-world "problems".
|Why Can't Modern Tube Manufacturers Make a Proper Tube?|
Hmmm. Maybe because it's a tiny niche market and there's no profit in it?
|My history with treble.|
Hmm. The one thing I don't see mentioned, especially if you are old enough to have been auditioning equipment in the 1970's: when was the last time you had your hearing professionally checked? Obsessing over treble response in equipment doesn't m...
