AC Regenerator
PS Audio is a great customer-focused company, and their regenerators are a good investment. I use different models on my three systems (home office, AV, and high-end audio. I am delighted. 
Best Speaker cable in the $400.00-$500.00 range for 2 meters
I drove my Avalon Eidolen speakers with a Rogue amp connected via several cables until I settled on AntiCables. Serious bang for the buck.(I subsequently replaced the Rogue with an Ayon Triton amp, but kept the cables.)
