Loudspeakers have we really made that much progress since the 1930s?
Zellatons from 1939 and Acoustat X from 1978 makes a good argument here. 
Sony HAP-Z1ES Hi-Res Music Player RMAF 2013
I went ahead and bought one and am loving the sound, especially on my bad recordings. The double DSD must be the reason. My wife loves it too, less cords and components lying around the living room and easy enough for her to use.

$$$Sensitive Speakers with $$Amps?
Alkso, try out the sleeper and giant killer of the year amp, the TBI Millenia. Their is a review of this at TNT audio here on the net. When you hook up a 24V battery system to it, you will hear more detail than you have ever heard before, while st... 
Rethm Maarga Impressions.
The Dayens Ampino amp sound great for $799. Get the US version with the Clarity caps. That is a big improvement over the T amp you are using and will compete to the ultra high dollar tube amps.

Any Anthony Gallo Strada Owners?
If you want to go on a beer budget with the Gallo Stradas, try the new Virtue Sensation amp with the tube buffer. With just the one tube change, you can change the character of sound to whatever you want. This combo is magical and very natural sou...

My Stradas are still breaking in. So far, very quick, open, and detailed. 
The Hub: Acoustat X: 'stats with tubes!
Thanks for the update on Acoustat. I sold Acoustats from 1978 until they went out of business, I still wish I had my pair of X's. I got those in on a trade and what a difference. The transformer driven Acoustats were not even close. I had Jim Stri... 
The best speaker you ever heard?
32 years ago, I heard the best, and they are still the best today-MBL. No other speaker has the spatial quality that those NBL drivers have. I was a hi-end audio dealer through from 78-98. wish I had bought me a pair the first time I heard them.
