I would suggest to find a second hand Mark Levinson N.40, and complete it with an HDMI card if it does not have one, and a small video processor with 2 HDMI ouptuts (the ML cannot pass through 1080p/24) like the Egde. Total cost should well below 10K, maybe be even 7K. It's what I use. I had the Classe at home for a week, and the Classe sounded dry and harsh compared to the ML.
