    WOW. You put a lot of thought into that.

                      The only thing you are missing, and this may apply more for semi-pro reviewers, a video of the system playing some "reference" recording. In my mind nothing shows the quality of a piece of equipment like a video recorded on a cheap digital camera, saved as a low quality video file, streamed over the internet and and then played using a lower quality computer audio setup.

                      I recently read a review of a $24K processor that contained all your above notes and a youtube video "showing" the playback quality.
