I'm going to differ here. When I complete the boat currently resting on the shed floor in Oz I'll maybe get some AVIs. But that's because a 23ft boat has space constraints.
If you want decent classical, then give an ear to Naim, Electrocompaniet or Densen with Harbeth. Wondeful combination - kick the AVIs into the proverbial for lovely sound. AVIs are a bit thin anda bit cold to my ears. Decent all rounders for the price, but for classical you might as well try the best. Anyway, go out and have a listen, it's fun any you could come back with something extra special.
Bit over your budget - well, double, but you won't want to change before the poms win the next soccer world cup
