Sorry, that's an absurd question. Your price range is massive in terms of build and sound quality. What you might expect from a very bare bones amp would be better quality than your expectations at $2k for a very feature laden amp with, say, high current delivery.
The number of components to select from in that price spread is vast.
You've not even mentioned sound quality nor musical values. No mention of your speakers or other components. Etc.
If you walked into my shop with your list and price range, I'd easily spend 30 minutes further qualifying your thinking before we even looked at a piece of electronics.
It would be easier for you to walk into a decent shop and get some other ideas than for us to just start naming amplifiers. If you have no decent shops, I would warn against spending the top of your budget without an audition.
Try a few of the magazines for names in your price range;

This is a meaningful upgrade on the decade + old RR2150 which has gotten terrific reviews and wide acceptance.
