----------Side Dishes ($635)
1. PSAudio Dectet Power Center (Power Cleaner) ($495 http://www.psaudio.com/shop/dectet-power-center/) You should probably have a surge protector for your valuable gear and this one at least probably wont hurt the audio quality and might help.

3.Moon Audio Black Dragon 75ohm mini coax ($65 http://www.moon-audio.com/black-dragon-75-ohm-mini-coax-digital-cable-for-the-hifiman-player.html)
Shipping, Taxes, Maybe a Recap of the SRM-1, Special power cables if you want them. All told this will get you very close to 3k if not a little over.
Disclamer: Most of this is what I saw fit to buy recently, the rest I want. What I did purchase is still in the mail but I don't have the depth of experience that others do here. Just don't forget to add in the ancillary bits like cables, shipping and taxes because those things can have a significant impact on your cost.
