$2500 for a TT setup w/a pair of $279 PSB Alpha B1 speakers, that seems a little out of whack. Are you planning to upgrade your speakers? Here's a suggestion The Clearaudio Concept TT comes w/cart $1499(basically plug and play right out of the box). Also does 33,45 and 78rpms w/out changing the belt. A speaker upgrade the Wharfedale EVO2-30's are being cleared out on Music Direct in the demo section $659 for Maple regular price was $1650. Wharfedale is making room for the new Jade series. Upgrade the phono w/a Lehmann Black Cube $499. Add the Spin Clean Starter Kit $79.99 and an Audioquest carbon fibre brush $25.00 it should make a nice setup. Also mentioned the Technics SL-1200 is a fantastic TT I'm not sure of the exact price but it should fit in. The other guys on this thread usually have some good ideas which I'm sure they can add some insight and suggestions. Good luck and have fun.

A few things I'm curious about. Do prefer bookshelf or tower speakers? What is the size of your room and what type of music do you like to listen to? Your room is a big factor in where you should go. I don't have a big room and for me I found that front ported speakers were the way to go to get a better control of my bass. By the way some years back I would have a a perfect TT for your Yamaha. It was a Yamaha PF-800 very cool looking TT w/3 huge brass knobs on top to balance the TT.
