The Demise of the Hi-End Audio Store
Thanks PBNaudio, I will have to check them out at some point. 
Now That You've Ripped Your Entire Collection...
I will go ahead and make the offer to keep any and all of yours, or anyones cd's in a safe place. I will even mail them back to you if the time ever arrises that you need them back. Just saying :) 
SACD vs Regular CD's
I would agree with some that you will not best a great CD player with a cheap SACD player. I would suggest the Ayre C5xeMP as a universal source. It does both formats incredibly well. The difference on a good system is definite. 
The Demise of the Hi-End Audio Store
I personally go to hifi shops not to listen and buy equipment but to demo a system that the dealer has put together to try and impress. I figure that if i demo the most expensive and well thought out rooms it can give me a baseline to compair what... 
iPad "Remote" App for iTunes

Cheap 2ch amp that can be controlled with iphone?

Low budget, just for fun
I vote buy her the audiophile dream system then marry her. Thus now your dream system. :) 
Upgrading Home Stereo
Emotiva has a new stereo pre the XSP-1 which is supposedly very nice. I do not currently own any emotiva products but can vouch for their great quality to price. I had to spend thousands more to get a better sound. If you are looking for a large c... 
Emotiva XPA-2 vs Yamaha M-80 vs Yamaha MX-1000
Where did you hear Emotiva was not good for 4 ohm, they are infact a very good amp for 4 ohm. I would suggest the Emotiva hands down over the alternatives you listed. 
Are you still playing CDs after, comp based syst?
I currently prefer by a large margin playing cd's or sacd's
