Forever turntable under $2000

In search of: forever turntable.

I'm currently looking to upgrade from my existing Pro-Ject RPM 1.3 to a table that I will (hopefully) never grow out of. I'm looking for something that is *technically* competent, something where I know the engineering is extremely solid and "timeless," and provides a good analog platform to swap carts with. My budget for this is $1600 with cart (but up to $2000 if there's a good case for it). The rest of my system is as follows:

* LSA 2.1 Statement speakers

* Schiit Gumby DAC

* Schiit Freya preamp

* Adcom GFA555 power amp

* Schiit Mani phono stage

So far, I have looked into the Rega P6 (or a used RP6), a Clearaudio Concept, a variety of Pro-Ject offerings, and a Michell Technodec... but at this level there are so many choices, its hard to know where to start. Any ideas? Thanks!

Get a tonearm with a removable headshell. Maybe a Technics or something with one of the new Jelco tonearms
I'll put in my vote for the Linn, too.  I bought mine (SN 1734) used in 1975, with a Keith Monks mercury arm.  I've tweaked it over the years, recently attaching the Lingo, and placing corner braces (have a friend with a great wood shop).  You can certainly get a used one, maybe even with their best bearing, for what you want to spend.  There are a lot of turntables that are cooler looking, but this is definitely a "forever" one.
You'd have to be quite the pessimist to be concerned with Technics TT longterm reliability.    I have a cheap P mount  Technics TT sitting on the shelf that I am certain will outlast me.   Japanese direct drives in general just keep ticking.   I have several from 70's and 80's that won't stop.  U gotta be kidding me.
