Looks like you found most of my Linn systems. I have one other (LK85 / Kolektor / B&O RL 60 speakers but never posted photo's because the electronics are in the cabinet you love and the speakers hang on the wall in the library.
Yes, we wanted something simple for the new sun room we built last year....again, with the focus on the music and not the gear. We love it and listen all the time as we now live in the new space.
I totally hear you on the vinyl thing. I had thousands of LP's where I only loved 2-3 songs. Like you, I am much happier with streaming and having access to anything I want or want to discover.
I cherry pick everything now and make killer playlists, all for our tastes. For $9.95 / month, I have my entire music world no matter where I am.
DEFINITELY hook up that old iPad and stream away!!!
