PUTTING together a turntable set up. Advice requested.

I live just outside NYC so will be quarantined for quite awhile still and need a project. So doing some research and put together the following turntable set up so far but need help for a preamp.

Marantz TT-1551
Dali Callisto 6C active speakers

Need help with a comparable preamp.

Thoughts? Thx in advance

Not going with the Marantz -- too much set up that Im not comfortable with, so going with the Rega Planar 3 with upgraded MM cartridge. Budget under $1,500. Was thinking about the Bryston or the Rega in that price range.

Final set-up. Completely different from where I started this journey. Thank you Audio Advisor!

1. Rega Planar 6 with Ania MC Catridge
2. Sutherland KC Vibe Phono preamp
3. ELAC Navis ARF-51 Powered Floorstanding Speakers
4. Harmonic Technology MagicLink RCA Audioconnects

Solid choices, Rega, Sutherland, and Elac are well regarded. Audio Advisor is good dealer also. Now go buy some/more records..
