I am planning to purchase one classical guitar with budget around USD 250.00. I do have a look at my local guitar stores in Singapore and found many brands such as Takamine (damn expensive), J&D, Yamaha, Nova, Homster (is it?) and etc.

Which one do you recommend? I think that Takamine is out of my choice as it is very expensive.

Takamine's arent that much... well not in the USA. A classical guitar from takamine could run from 200+. Takamine is the best classical guitar for that price range. Best classical I ever played.
i have a cordoba C-5 which was 260 and i have nothing to complain about it
<Raven> I got so baked last night
<Raven> that I WOKE UP high o_o
<Raven> Do you have any idea how euphoric that is?
<Raven> I felt like I was being born.
look at yamahas in that price range

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.
