I'd suggest a used MFA Magus, or used Audible Illusions Modulus. If you can get the John Curl phono board with it, that would be a plus.

I can't stand CJ, especially the 10B. If you do go CJ, try the PV5, much better.
The MFA is beautiful and the AI is nice too. I simply hate dual volume controls.
Consider a Classe 30. Very minimalist, very easy to use, trouble free and great phono stage. Plus, you get remote.
My other choice is a Sumo Athena-pure class A, simple, solid state and will keep up with anything 10 times the price. You can find one for under $300
