You come to the wrong hi fi forum to ask about 10k systems as this is the forum for the plebs and not you rich men. As you probably already know a lot people on this forum only own entry level stuff (stuff that costs £500 to £1000). A very few will have spent more but most will have not (like me) as we plebs can only dream of spending 10k on a system.

I notice a previous suggestion for PMC. I certainly wouldn't write those off.
Also, putting a late shout out for bel canto.
My mate has a bel canto/PMC set up and it sounds superb.
Hope this doesn't confuse things!

Haha. I'm as much of a pleb as the rest. This will be a long term investment over time (and the last I ever buy). But we all need a dream, right?

The new PMC Cor gets good reviews, but can't help thinking it just looks like an old games console.

To these ageing eyes it looked very nice in front of me, especially in natural Aluminium, inside and out and build quality seemed very high indeed but at that price I personally would perhaps take a Gato, H390 or NAD M33 over it were I looking for an integrated.

The above perhaps being choices if my new Actives don't work out.

If you want something a bit different and a little more "special' i'd look at class A something by first watt or sugden and maybe some tannoy legacy and or Klipsch Heritage series speakers or even some JBL classics if you can look past the honey combe grill (I couldn't).

That's what I spent my 10k on with a chord DAC and technics turntable.

I guess what i'm saying is, For that sort of money is try to look past the usual suspects

Musical fidelity, Luxman, Acuphase, First watt, Sugden

tannoy, revel, JBL, harbeth, falcon acoustics, russel k

worlds your oyster at this price level, its where things get really interesting

At around £10k ATC's SCM19A active monitors with a pair of JL Audio's Dominion d-108 are also worth bearing in mind.

Add an Innuos server and using digital out into an Anthem's STR pre amp which incorporates a DAC, phono stage and also features their excellent ARC (Anthem Room Correction - Genesis) to help the mains and subs sing from the same hymn sheet and correct for the acoustical errors of the room.

Be aware this is dealer talk, but he may have a point.

Not so interested in active speakers.
After a lot of research, I think the final system will be:
Project Classic Evo
Moonriver Audio 404 Reference Amp with DAC and MM/MC modules (when they sort their DAC supply issue)
Harbeth C7ES
Keep my existing CA CXN V2 streamer
