BEST CLASS D AMPS?
I don't think anyone has mentioned Blue Circle. They have a new line of class D amps that are apparently better than their old hybrid class AB (maybe class A, I forget) 200 series at a lower price. I haven't heard them, but I've never heard a Blue... 
Best near wall high end speaker
A little above your budget and a little too wide, but I’ll suggest Trenner and Friedl Pharoahs anyway. They also make these tiny little Sun speakers for around $2500 that are supposed to be quite good. Both are designed for near wall placement.  
Harbeth vs JM Reynaud
Wim1983: simply put Harbeths don't draw me into the music like Reynauds do. The issue with the 30.1's had nothing to do with bass, I simply didn't connect with them. After all the whole point of this entire hobby is to be emotionally moved by musi... 
Harbeth vs JM Reynaud
Another vote for Reynaud here. I've owned Twin Signatures, Cantabile Supremes, and Offrandes Supreme V2s. On the Harbeth side I've owned SHL5s and 30.1s. Both of which left my house within a few months. Twice I went to Harbeth's in between Reynaud... 
Recommend A More Dynamic Monitor Than Harbeth C7
JM Reynaud Bliss Silver with Magic Stands. A very natural step (up in my opinion) from Harbeth. 
Need a power cord for Garrard 301.
Will do thanks again Dan!

Dan: beautiful 401! Plinth is already made without a spot for an IEC (and I won't/can't do it myself).David: amazing systems! You're probably right, I'm overthinking this.

Oh and that's "decent", not "descent". :) 
Harbeth 30.1's w/Leben CS-1000P or CS-600
Chayro I think Charles is right, you may want to hold on to that Viva. If you don't, give me a call! 
Harbeth 30.1's w/Leben CS-1000P or CS-600
Thanks everyone. Hey Chayro! I still have the T&F Pharoah's, they're doing very, very well in my living room.Clearly I'm going to need to hear these for myself, but ultimately I fear this statement from HUG: "{Moderator's comment: A carefully ... 
Any updated opinions on TW Acustics Raven GT/10.5?
Thanks guys. It's much appreciated, and making me feel a bit more comfortable in my decision.

Any updated opinions on TW Acustics Raven GT/10.5?
Thanks. Hopefully I'll be going up to hear the GT at high water sound within the next month or two. I'm also debating between the 4poing and TW10.5, another tough decision. 
Kuzma Stabi S and 4point? overkill?
I've often wondered that. Obviously the table is important, but how important is it compared to the arm/cartridge? Has anyone anywhere run a test like this? Great arms and cartridges on decent tables? Would be interesting I imagine.
