Valve Phono Stages. Opinions?

Hi all. I'm gradually driving myself paranoid and getting confused in the bargain.

I have a standard Technics SL1200 MII TT with an Ortofon M2 Bronze Cartridge into a Technics SU C2000 pre. It sounds good but, as always, curiosity creeps in.

I am developing a yearning to try a valve phono stage just to learn what the fuss is all about. So, can anyone recommend a starter for ten? I don't want to pay mega bucks but I realise you only get what you pay for. There seems to be a lot of choices, hence the confusion.
