Upgrade from Denon DP-300f

Hello everyone, first time posting. I like the forums.
I've unfortunately built my entire system up while neglecting my turntable in the process. I think the time has come to consider an upgrade and was curious if anyone had any suggestions. THANKS! Here is a list of my current set-up.

Source: Denon Dp-300f turntable https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hifi/turntables/dp300f

Cartridge: Ortofon Bronze

Phono Pre-amp: Tokyo Sound PE-100 SE http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/6492 ... s/1092659/

Pre-Amp: Reference Line Preeminence One Passive Pre-amplifier http://kahlaudio.com/products/reference ... 1400-msrp/

Amplifier: Odyssey Audio Khartago stereo amplifier w/ Plus upgrades http://www.odysseyaudio.com/products-kh ... tereo.html

Speakers: Energy Veritas 2.2i (a bit aged but perform flawlessly) http://www.audioreview.com/product/spea ... akers.html

Speaker cable: Kimber Cable 8VS

Interconnects: Audio Quest Golden Gate

I would be working with a roughly $1000 budget. I'm also not opposed to something vintage. I would probably still use the Ortofon Bronze in tangent with it. For now anyway.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Consider

Consider the Rega P3. It is a darn nice table and the price point is right. The sound profile is great and one of the few critiques I have off it is the base Elys II cartridge lacks bass clarity but you won’t have that issue with the 2M Bronze. I own the prior model, the RP3 and am very happy with it.

Turntable

I would recommend the Music Hall 7.3 turntable, which can be had for $1395 without cartridge.

This is an excellent unit with a fully isolated motor, and since you have a good cartridge....

The VPI Cliffwood, at $900, is another one to consider.
