Your post is irrelevant to the OP, OP want's the best classical system he can get between $2000-2500, not what's the best Stax setup he can get for classical music alone, if he wants best of the best, I've read that from David Mahler's comparison thread the $15-22k HE90 does wonder's with classical music. For Stax alone I've heard the SR-007 MKII's before and they are beautiful sounding (bit dry sounding at times) at the retail price about $2200 or bit more, a used one from the F/S section for either the MK1 or 2 can be had for less but they don't pop up as much as say HE-500 or LCD2's do. Grab an amp for that and it's already over the the $2500 limit. Even if the OP went for the cheap Lambda frame model's, say SR-507 which are pretty good + the best SRM model amp for it will still drive a bit over the $2500 not to mention the SR-507 are sort of dull and boring last time I auditioned one, but has great detail retrieval, even if he went for a GES or another DIY alternative KGSSHV etc it will still cost over $2500. As I said Staxes are a different story.
