Getting started with vinyl; what should this man be auditioning?

All, I am planning to buy my first vinyl deck for more than 20 years. I still have some vinyl from my youth and would love to be able to give them a spin again. I was going to take a gamble with a used deck from a fellow pfm member, but my plans have been delayed by an unforeseen financial setback. This gives me some thinking time. Budget for deck, arm, cart and phono stage is approx £1000. What should I be auditioning?
