I tried an entry level table (Marantz TT15) and an entry level phono stage (PS Audio GCPH) and then I sold it all after a year and upgraded significantly to a VPI Classic, Dynavector XX2 mk2, and a Pass XP15 phono stage. I can say that I fell in love with analog and needed a much better analog set up to compare with my digital front end. You have very good components and probably excellent digital sound. You owe it to yourself to go with higher quality components from the start to truly experience what analog can do. Setup is everything and the phono stage is very important. Don't scrimp on the equipment. You can try what you are thinking but don't be surprised if you like it and then start the search anew. Good luck and enjoy! Oh, and you'll need a good cleaning system for vinyl. I started with the spin clean which was fine but then upgraded to the VPI 16.5 which works great and you can find them used.
