    This is technically impossible. Lumin playlist (once setup) is in the player hardware, retrieved and played completely by itself. You can have the smartphone or iPad powered off without affecting the playlist playback from internet or local NAS.

    I also enjoy the KEF sound and the Maggie sound. I owned them both at the same time and they were driven by an Aragon 4004 Mark 2 amp, Melos SHA-1 preamp and a Carver 490t player. They each had a completely different sound and I liked them both. ...

    The Rega table and the Schitt amp certainly seem like solid choices. Maybe I am not understanding what you are suggesting, but if your speakers are $3700 a pair would that not pretty much blow your $5k budget?
