One possible choice is the Project Sumiko. Most Excellent. Sounded much better than the Rotel I was using prior.

Sometimes you can find some very good phono stages for next to nothing if you look around. I was able to pick up a Klyne for well under what you want to spend. Something that is a little more common and offers at least a little bit of versatility would be the older Musical Fidelity X-LP series. It has switchable gain / loading characteristics for either a moving magnet or moving coil cartridge at the flip of a switch. These typically go for about $150 or so from what i remember and they are well shielded ( all metal construction ), so RFI shouldn't be a problem at this price point. Sean
