Paul,

Here is the order on allocation of budget from more$ to less

1. Speakers (spend the most amount of money here)
2. Amplification, (Class A, Class A/B)
3. Source (CD, SACD, iPod with uncompressed files)
4. Processor (direct Audio feature is best)
5. Cables (10% of system, Canare or Belken)

Have fun.
