*Spend a good chunk of your budget here.
I would highly suggest you go to a hi-fi shop the listen to speakers. I started with cheap Polks, and eventually wanted to upgrade. I went to the shop having a leaning towards Klipsch. I brought a handful of records of various genres, played them, and the Def Techs easily won me over. They could have everything I listened to and sounded great. Klipsch were great, but more so in the rock area. I'd say cart and speakers play the biggest part. Just don't get a crap table with a crap cart. Spend around $250-300 to get a solid table, with a solid cart, and upgrade the cart after you wear that first one out. That Staton is a budget DJ table. Take all the move you've saved using that for a decade and invest in a nice table. All those nice post rock records you have deserve it. I know you've spent $80 or more on a single record. You can, and should, focus more of that money into the table. Just some advice.
I have upgraded my table once, my cart three times (every time once has spun its life, I upgrade to the next tier), my amp three times (mostly due to technology changing and doing home theater - I still have one of them as a back up), my speakers once (and added the Klipsch towers as home theater), and never my pre amp, over about 10 years.
You can always do open box, search used online / in store, etc. and pinch a few more pennies.
But seriously, for speakers, go listen in person. Don't blind buy or go just on reviews. One person loving it for their taste doesn't mean you will.
