Perhaps a TacT will let you have your cake and eat it too.

Audible Illusions and Musical Fidelity make good ones that can be found in your price range on Audiogon. Your first step, however, would be to get Mye stands for your Maggies. Then I'd look at my front end. Getting a preamp with a good phono stage would help there. Your Innersound is a great choice for the Maggies.
I have had good luck with my Van Alstine T7ecr, it is a hybrid unit using 12at7 tubes.I only paid 550 for a 14 month old unit.... Since you can always upgrade Van Alstine equipment, you can save in the long run. I have had nothing but trouble with tube pre-amps over the years, this is the 1st that actually has any bass (in my application).The only professional review I have read about this pre-amp was from Tom Tyson, he said it was similar to the Bent pre-amp, with more drama....very neutral.
