That's a pretty big range. So you're set on not getting an AVR? An AVR will do what you need to do for cheaper and all you have to do is add a phono preamp from phonopreamps.com for $43. I've listed some other 2-channel (2.1 or 2.0) options below.
HK 3490 $449 or wait for sale (as already mentioned before, it has a built-in phono connection)
Outlaw RR2150, $699 has bass management, USB DAC, and phono input
Parasound Zpre2, refurb $299 (preamp) + refurb Parasound Zamp v.3 $262 (amp, 45W 8 ohms, 60W 4 ohms) + refurb Parasound Zphono $149 (phono preamp)
Marantz PM5004, $449 or refurb for $370 at accessories4less.com
NAD C-316BEE, $380 + $40 for phono preamp
