Off topic a little bit, what do you plan to drive your system with ?
I'm using a Harman/Kardon DPR-1001 right now, which I purchased new roughly 15 years ago. It's 50wpc and was Harman's first pure digital input-to-output design for home use. It's very clean and runs very cool but probably a bit underpowered, and doesn't do HDMI at all, so I'll be looking at an upgrade at some point in the future.
The Emotiva XMC-1 looks interesting, I love that it has Dirac, but its video switching is limited to 9gb, and I'll need at least 18gb, so I'd have to wait for the next version. ATI has their new Hypex-based class D amps that are getting great reviews as well which could probably pair up nicely.
Alternatively I could go with an all-in-one setup, and Arcam's new receivers have Dirac Live as well, but they're class A/B amps and I'd prefer to stay with a class D setup just for heat and power draw reasons.

There's somebody trying to sell a pair of Alpha 50s used on Amazon for $500 with blown tweeters. I'm not sure what the market is for the Alphas, they do look nice, are yours the rosewood or the black? The guy I bought my IL40s from said he had them on Craigslist for 2 months before I finally drove up to grab them (I may have noticed them a while ago, but I think he'd dropped the price not long before I made the trek).
