IMHO, your suggested upgrade will not move you very far up in the range of mid- to highend analogue frontends. Sure, it will offer an improvement over the Rega but won't be nearly as good as a Basis/Graham combo. What's more, you can upgrade the Basis 2000 line from what you now wish to pay to what you'll eventually want. I know, you can do the same with some of the VPI line, but you'll never get to a point where your VPI will sound as good as the Basis. I know, I've owned both a TNT/Airtangent and Debut/Graham. Give a listen, of course, before the plunge. It's your opinion alone that counts.
