You could find a used ML No 39 for around that. I used to have ML 33, No 39, and Nautilus 802s - sounded very nice.

Your proceed has a levinson number 36/36s built into it. If you wanted to save some money you could still get incredible sound by just buying a high quality transport. A levinson 37 with your avp would sound the same as the 39 more or less. I had a 36 for about 5 years until i upgraded it to the 360s. The 360s was better but not by huge margins and the sound was just fantastic with just the 36 as well. So i reccomend just buying a transport and using the avp as your processor. If not, then id get the audio aero or the emc 1. Both are really good. You could maybe also get a 39 afterall and then later upgrade it to the 390s which would be a bit better than using the avp. I hope this helps. Thanks - Ian
