In the $1000 level, you will have no problem finding a top notch combination, my only recomendation is, if you can buy the turntable localy, don't ship. In my shop in Seattle we have many customers, who bought expensive turntables on E-bay & Audiogon, and they ended up spending another $100-400 to have the turntable set up and adjusted, most of the customers needed help mounting the tone arms and the tracking adjustments. Many of the Linn tables had to have the suspetion adjusted. So if you have a local dealer to keep the turntable setup adjustments it really helps.
Ther are many chioce in the used catagory and most of them will be real winners:
Look into Rega, Sota, MMF, Clear Audio, VPI and Well Tempered.
Any table from these manufactures will give you great sound, although each does it in a slightly differant way. If you happen to run across a Well Tempered Record Player or Classic I would grab it. I think they sound swell and are a great value when coupled with the right cartridge. I happen to like mine with a Benz Glider but many enjoy theirs with a Grado woody.
