I went from Xpression to Nottingham Spacedeck/Spacearm. It was $1300 used. In any case, I would get a better table/arm and more modest cartridge than the other way around. Ortofon black costs almost as much as Xpression. Cartridge is easier to upgrade unless we are talking very expensive cartridges.
Between those two I would get the Xperience Classic, it's a better table with a superior arm. A certain online store (not sure if I'm allowed to give the name) has all three finishes for $1199 right now, there is also a 10% off code you can use - PM me for details.
