Best phono preamp under $500?

Preferably new not used although if there is a used "champ" in my price range I guess I'd consider it.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I forgot to say that when it comes to hi-fi, I prefer to avoid Chinese made equipment. Impossible to do in everyday products, but in the world of high end electronics it is still very feasible and practical. I'm not a snob nor a hypocrite, but I do what I can, when I can.

Bajaed, you mentioned an upgraded power supply. Which one and where do you go for that? Which tube did you switch to?
