I've owned the Classik and loved it. Not reference, but very good. The Genki player is superior, however the Majik I found to be very thin sounding. I'd vote the Classik overall.

I have owned both and the Majik is superior sounding to the Classik - though the classik has some really nice features and is great value. The Majik is among the best integrateds out there, and partnered with the Genki, would be slightly more satisfying than the Classik. As a sidenote I would not bother with the variable outputs of the Genki - to me they just don't sound right. The Majik/Genki would be a beautifully smooth combination. Also, despite its meagre 33 watts it seems more powerful than the Classik as well.
For an office system I would go with the Classik - The performance differences between it and the Majik/Genki would be unappreciable in an office environment but the features and convenience the Classic offers are truly brilliant. You can program it to turn on and off when you want - to a particular track on a cd or a radio station, it powers down by itself when not in use...
If it's not for your main system (or even if it is and you want the convenience) I would go for the Classik. If you think you want to embark on a steady and expensive path of continuous upgrading to get the absolute best sound then consider the Majik/Genki.
