After a long time building, swapping, going back on ideas, I finally finished the system I had in my head. 
This will keep me happy...just for a while....

Excellent system, must sound sweet with the tube amps. In the early 80's I had a pair of Klipschorns with Carver 250 watt amp Carver sonic holography pre amp and B&O turntable Teac cassett deck. I was 20 years old and was into loud music, so loud that i blew the stock Klipsch  fuses so threw in 30 amp car I had the meters pinned at min 100 watts continuous on that Carver amp, talk about a rock concert in your living room lol. for kicks I would crank it up and then see how far away I could hear the music.. 10 blocks away and I could still hear it.  I worked shift and in the day time no neighbors home so I enjoyed my music. At 56 im contemplating getting a pair of Klipschorns and some seriously sweet tube amps... .....
