Tonian Labs TL-D1 Mk2
am interested in the 12's (larger, PHY drivers)- supposedly amazing, but much more $$$ ($9k+) 
Gabriel Gold IC's are they really this good?
would be nice to keep this thread going- have an original Rapture and have 'r' and Reflection IC's on order- will report back on findings- these are fantastic interconnects. 
Best Integrated Amp
The Ayon Triton is right up there

Who makes a GM-70 based SET?

Guidoc- have you heard the BC's (or JRDG's) through a higher efficiency speaker? 
jeff rowland 501 & 201 vs. bel canto ref1000
