NAD makes the L40 all in one - FM tuner,amp & cd player. A respectable 20 w/ch and if mated to a fairly efficient pair of speakers will be more than enough for a kitchen. We use one in the wife's system (livingroom) and it does a nice job. New should cost about 60% of a used Classik. For $1000 budget you could get the NAD, speakers and some new software.
