    Best programmable universal remotes?

    In that price range, the Harmony is your best bet. Another option is the Home Theater Master remotes... from Universal Remote control. The upper line of their remotes MX-3000 are incredible, haven't really used the entry level remotes from them but definitely worth checking out.

    Most transparent preamps?

    I used to have a Mark Levinson No.380S. I thought it to be very transparent back when I had it in the late 90's. The unit retailed for about $6500 in 1998-99ish. I see them on Audiogon now and then for about $1500

    Are headphone amps pointless...

    Most headphone amps are in fact pointless. Most of the ones I've seen are rectangular or even rounded. I can't say I've ever seen a pointed amp.

    Older CDP + New Separate DAC?

    I don't know about substituting, but adding an external dac and turning your Arcam into a transport would probably be less expensive and give you more control over getting the sound you want versus buying a whole new CDP. $0.02.

    Vote of the Two Bobs :)

    The nice thing about Bob is that it's spelled the same forwards and backwards. Best name you could ever hope to give a dyslexic :-) +1 for the Reggae king.

    Good Headphones for ~$50?

    The SR60s are a great bang for the buck headphone. Keep in mind that they are open and leak sound if you will. I have a pair and would recommend them to anyone.
