In my experience, the Classé CP-50 is a significant improvement over the CP-45 and lower numbered models, and can be found within the $1K to $1.2K range. If you can't find one with the internal phono stage, just use an external phono preamp like the Musical Fidelity V-LPS or Cambridge Azur 640P. You can always upgrade the phono preamp later.
