That would be:
- SB+ (hot rodded squeezebox) - £1000
- Assuming the person already has a PC, lets add a couple of hard drives and RF router - £150
- Wavac MD-811 - £3000
Quite simply, one of the best amps I've ever heard
- Living Voice auditoriums £2000
- Power cables from Coherent systems - £500
- Interconnects and speakers cables from Zanash - £300
That would by thoughts. Having said that, I'd go s/h which would change the choice of speakers and amps and also cost a lot less.
I was reading a similar thread to this on some random Dutch audio forum yesterday: what would you do with 10,000 euros for source/amp/speakers. A large number of posters seemed to agree that you should spend 500 euros on a digital source ("because they all sound almost the same, and if you don't believe us ABX test yourself"), then 1500 on an integrated amp (this apparently being the right sort of price for decent quality, more money gaining one little apparently) and 8000 on a pair of speakers (since these are not solid state electronics and therefore far more quality increase for the cash).
Personally with £7.5k I'd spend weeks and weeks listening to all kinds of interesting kit, then just get horribly confused and end up trying to squeeze together the best combination of Classe+B&W that I could (which would probably end up being 804s with integrated amp and CD player from the delta range I guess)
