Integrated amp for my Sonus Faber Guarneri
Congrats on your purchase D.I.L.E.! While the Guarneri's will show any changes/upgrades to equipment they are also quite forgiving compared to other speakers. I have not tried a plethora of components with my G's as they've sounded good with prett... 
Integrated amp for my Sonus Faber Guarneri
I have my Guarneri's paired with ASL 1009 mono's which are rated at 60 watts and have never left my Guarneri's wanting more in a 19' x 13' room. I agree wholeheartedly with Lloyd that they are best mated to "higher quality mid-level power". I thin... 
Speakers to hang on to for LIFE
I think I could live happily ever after with my Sonus Faber Guarneri. 
SF Guarneri Homage vs Harbeth 7ES3
I am a proud Guarneri owner myself...sorry never heard the Harbeth. All I can add is that it would be hard to imagine a speaker sounding finer on the types of music you mentioned. 
Recommendation for vacuum tube CD-player
If yuo can stretch your budget a bit past 3k then I'd have to recommend a used Audio Aero Capitole MKII se. 
Which tubed pre to "flesh out" my mids???
Thanks for all the suggestions, every single one merits serious consideration. Another contender has entered my mind...the ASL Flora. Any experiences or thoughts how it mates with the ASL 1009's? I'm not sure that it is considered on the warm side...

Joule Electra LA-150 MK3 vs MK2?
In case anyone were interested, these is no was a typo. 
which tube mono blocks?
I would like to add another recommendation for Wolcott monoblocks...if I had to describe them in one word it would be "effortless". 
Antique Sound Labs AQ1003DT opinions wanted
I have the ASL 1009DT. I would not describe it as romantic at all. In fact, I plan to make it sound romantic by rolling tubes...but I can't say I've heard other ASL products so I don't know if my 1009DT reps the house sound. 
Best amp under $6k, in your opinion?
To start with what speakers are you talking about? Sonic preferences? Room size? 
Speakers to hang on to for LIFE
SF Guarneri Homage...haven't thought about another speaker for a split second since owning these. 
Removing the ground on PC?
I have read somewhere that my Wadia 302 is known for this and is actually suppled with a 2 pronged plug (without ground pin). I can't say for sure since I bought my unit on the 2nd hand market, the cord supplied wasn't the original...perhaps I'll ...
