    Arcam DV79, AVP700, P1000, B&W 805S, B&W HTM4S, M&K K4, Velodyne DD12, Sim2 C3Xlite, with screen and some good cables.

    You could of course better certain areas as we know, but £11K on the projector limits that.

    Surely money no object means just that, no limit on price.

    Why would you need a Velodyne if you are lashing out on 805s? But I note an absence of top of the range ProAc and PMC speakers so far. Sub woofers? Who needs 'em?

    For 50k pounds I think you would be looking beyond Arcam to the super fi - you could start to consider putting Audio Research et al. on your list.

    But looking further - try this. The alleged price tag is $US 500K.

    Can Arcam match this? Not sure but I'm not unhappy with mine.:thumbsup:

    A good sub is needed, some of the .1 LFE is not accessable in no sub mode.

    Also try Naim or Classe if you want to up the benchmark.
