$1500 does not leave a lot of room if you're looking for both an amp and speakers new. I'd highly recommend looking in the secondary market. One option is a used Jolida 1501 integrated hybrid -- they can be had for about $500 (you may need to buy a universal remote separately). For Speakers, Paradigm Reference Studio 40s are well regarded and in your price range (used). I like the sound of Green Mountain Audio speakers with tube gear. Their last generation...

Poker night on Friday -- one Ramon Allones regional edition Asia Pacific, one Cohiba Siglo I, and one H Upmann Magnum 46. Rum selections "on tap" included Zafra 21 Year Old, Flor de Cana 12, Diplomatico Exclusivo, and a few others. A solid night.
+3 on the Bona (not "Bonfa"). Do not over-wet the floors. This is the biggest mistake people make when cleaning. Moisture will wick between the boards, expand (over time) and create small expansion joints for dirt. Spray the solution directly on the micorfiber mop and go to town. Roomba robot also gets good reviews by those who use it.

... alas, this is not the thread to read right now. I'm drinking nothing in preparation for heading to the gym in an hour. Last night I had some surprisingly good wine at a launch party for the next generation of robots. Fold towels they do, and mix drinks they might. Vicarious tippling for me right now only.
I'm drinking one of my last bottles of Dogfish Head Brewery "Punk" ale from this past year -- perfect rainy CA afternoon brew. That 2010 Jubel is great beer -- I picked up several bottles and have laid down all but one for aging.
Home roasted micro-lot Grade-A Kona coffee from a stellar farm on Purple Mountain (Kona's answer to Jamaica's Blue Mountain). It's a beautiful cup but *very* mood specific -- it's so nuanced and delicate that a measure of attentiveness is required for full appreciation. This is a super-low acid coffee, and has lovely notes of wine, wet earth, unsweetened cocoa, and a hint of stone fruit.

My favorite and most-used lens is a 58mm f1.2 Noct-Nikkor which is just incredible. I probably will get the 50/1.8, too -- it's just so cheap, and AF is really nice -- most of my lenses are MF. ~H Great older lens. I have a soft spot for older solid, heavy,...
