Desire upgrade but uncertain where to begin

I have a Project Debut 2 table with a Grado black or red, uncertain. This is currently connected to my Mrantz pm 7200 with internal phono stage. I have a parasound pph-100 that I can hook up but wanted some clarity before I continue. These are output to Cambridge Soundworks Kloss Tower II speakers. Wanted to optimize my analog front end and wanted help deciding if I should move my phono stage to the parasound, and/or get a new cartrige or table. I have entry level budget but just wanted some comments and opinions about best place to start to improve sound. Current set up has narrow sound stage yet warm and detailed. There is an adequate tight bottom end but the top is a bit subdued--cymbals need more detail at the top end. Any comments about alternate analog front end would be great.
you need to decide on a budget. I personally would start over with a different front end in the $2500 range new retail if I was buying new.Or something in the $1000 range used. For sure get a better cartridge, but you can only go so far with that table and arm. If you just want to spend a couple of hundred max, get a cartridge.
Since you have a different phono stage sitting right there, why not hook it up and listen to what differences you hear? The best budget is "free", lol.

Identifying what you like (or dislike) about one phono stage vs. the other will help you decide what direction you want to go (sonically). That would give people a basis on which to offer advice. At the moment, everybody's shooting in the dark... including you.
