The Denon cart is an overachiever as is your phono preamp. My advice would be to upgrade the turntable/tonearm.

I own a pair of Usher V-604 that just got their drivers replaced last month. All woofers and tweeters were upgraded to current versions and that was quite a jump in quality. Much more inner and microdetail, layers of music are now being revevealed that were not there before. Speakers are staying at this point.
Analog-wise, that could change. I seem to be happy with what is being heard on vinyl and there is a sense of ease in the music when I do AB with my Pioneer Elite SACD player.
However, I am really interested in understanding whether I need to jump $$ to a VPI or SME, or will I hear a noticable difference with a slight $$ jump to a Pro-ject Xpression of Music Hall 5.1SE?
Thanks in advance.
