Cost break down of hifi system
Given that you have speakers and amplification. The next step is to decide on the source components. What media will you be using? I would then get some budget cables and set the system up. Run it for awhile and get to know it. Adjustments inroom... 
Dedicated circuits
I believe in isolation of power to my audio system. I installed 3 dedicated lines for my system. I used 10ga romex for amp, 12 ga for preamp and another 12ga for digital.  I used 20amp breaker for the amp and 15 amp breakers for the other two line...

Check out Music Direct and Audio Advisor. Do you have an amplifier that you will be using with said speakers? The Pioneer BS-22 speaker sold for $130 when available. Possibly you can find a used pair. Wharfedale Diamonds also a good choice. Des... 
Has anyone gone from Tannoy to Zu Audio?
I have run my Tannoy Sterlings with an EL34 Line Magnetic 211ai tube amp and to my ears that amp brings a smoothness and clarity to the upper mids and lower  treble region that also seems troublesome with my hearing (sibilance) . I believe, though... 
Looking for advice
Does the Bluesound node have digital input to use with the Cambridge transport? I may be wrong but don't believe it does. Do you currently use a CD player?   
Right match
The question is: do you have a phonostage between TT and preamp line stage? Many preamps have an input that says phono however it is meant for an external phonostage.  A followup to that is: does the phonostage provide for low output MC cartridge... 
Looking for advice
I have no problem with your approach to streaming given your plan for future upgrades. Given you are looking for a transport I assume you listen to CDs.  One question,  what DAC would you be using for the transport?      
What are the best entry level integrated amps and speakers?
Old thread. None of us has heard back from OP on the decision.  
Amp for B&W 706 s2
Look online for the manual for the NAD. I have owned the 326 and 356BEE. Both have a variable pre output for a subwoofer.
