How cheap can you go and still be happy with the sound?
Some klipsch rb62 II and an alan eaton amp. Setup under 2500  
Warm, yet detailed tube preamp
I really enjoyed the Cary Slp-98 but my fave yet is the Luxman 38uc… i dont know how else to describe it other than it brought the soul and emotion out of everything I listened to.  
KEF LS50 Meta
I had a pair and loved them. They sound big and clean. I liked them more than my buchardts (synergy pending). The kef are really well built and look awesome. And audiophile is a relative term. The kef punch well above thier price point.  
power cord for pass 250.8
What about a new pre instead? Backert labs tier one rhumba is just forward enough. I had it paired with a 250.8 and really enjoyed it. Just dont know a cord will deliver what you’re looking for. I wasnt a big fan of Pass labs preamps. They always ... 
Need Guidance for Next/Last Pair of Speakers
Id go with so forte IV. Fantastic sounding. A hair more forward than the cornwalls but i dig that. I had voltis as well and I liked them at loud volumes - didnt love them at moderate volumes.  
DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/baby speakers
@kennyc Ive owned the o/93's and now the o/baby. I love both - synergy pending of course. The o/93's are bigger - as they should be, but the o/baby are just as magical. They cast a great soundstage, have enough bass and the mids are spooky good. B... 
What use to burn in power cords?
Speakers ok … tubes for sure … capacitors perhaps … but cords? Is there any evidence backing “cord break in”?

How to make the Focal Kanta No. 2 speakers sing?
Its the speakers man. This is a common complaint with focal. Before you soend a ton of money on room treatment etc etc - TRY a tube pre. I would purchase a freya + (with the TUNGSTOL tubes) a great pre for the price (cheaper than installing a bunc... 
looking for an integrated amp in the $1500 range
Try an Allen Eaton tube amp (no need for pre), and a pair of caintuck audios fast 15 - that setup is slightly over budget but man will it sound magical at low to mid volume levels. Great combo.  
I Am Not an Audio Snob
Schitt makes good gear - especially for the price. I especially love their Freya+ pre. I had that hooked up to a mc-462 amp and they sounded wonderful together. Like you I was also contemplating getting the schitt tone controls for my current syst... 
Bought a system without auditioning, thoughts?
Int 250 is one of my faves. The fortes iv are great too - enjoy, this is a wonderful setup. Wonderful.
