I'm new to this and found a few turntables within my price range. Are they any good/which would you recommend?

I was also wondering which speakers you would recommend for turntable?
ENERGY POINT 1E vs MORDAUNT SHORT MS-15 BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS
(I can get the sanyo and ms speakers for $300 or the SL-B2 and the 1E speakers for $250 in a combo)
I'm also looking to buy Sherwood RX 2030R Stereo-Surround Amplifier Receiver with Phono function for turntable (https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/adelaide-cbd/stereo-systems/sherwood-stereo-surround-amplifier-receiver-with-phono/1247707184)
A little while back I purchased a pair of Kanto YU6 Active Speakers + a Kanto Subwoofer and found the sound quality to be quite decent.
I'd like to take my system to the next level with a preamp, in order to bypass the speaker's phono stage and give myself additional features such as a DAC, networking options, optical inputs etc.
I was also thinking that the preamp would be a long term investment e.g. pair it with another component such as the RA-1572 Integrated Amplifier and a new set of better speakers (down the line).
So it boils down to this: For the time being, is it a silly idea to pair an active pair of speakers with a Preamp?
Would I be better off selling my active speakers and just getting an Integrated Amp + passive speakers?
I am seeking advice on whether or not to get better power cables. Nothing in my system has a ground pin:
Preamp: Arcam SR250
Monitors: Acoustic Energy AE1 Active
Subs: B&W DB4S
DAC: Allo DigiOne
Power conditioner: iFi PowerStation
Mains Power: Dedicated 20amp line
Interconnects: Mix of Wireworld Luna 7s and Blue Jeans.
Everything except the Allo is powered using standard three pin IEC-13 plugs. Therefore I have a floating ground setup which is apparently good?
Is there an advantage in upgrading to better quality EGM power cables? I assume the EMI/RFI screening would help the interconnects as they are not balanced?
I have my CD player hooked up to my integrated amplifier - works great.
I'd like to add a DVD player & TV into the system.
As I don't have a AV receiver, and only a 2.0 speaker setup, I would like to see if I can stick with my integrated amp.
In order to have the sound from the DVD player go through the amp, and the picture go to the TV, is a HDMI splitter the item I need?
I am looking for some advice regarding my amplifier. I had bought Emotiva TA-100 amp while visiting USA a couple of years ago (still under warranty). Recently I noticed that it is producing static noise. I unplugged everything except power and speaker cable and have replaced the power and speaker cables but I can still hear the noise if I am close enough to the speaker (Maybe 1 feet away) . Also tried to connect my speaker (Elac UB5 ) to my very old Denon amp which did not produce any noise. Contacted Emotiva and they are saying that its normal for some amps to have noise. I have sent them a recording of the noise and they are still not accepting that there is anything wrong with the amp. To me this much noise does not seem normal.
Just wanted to know if anyone had a similar experience with Emotiva or any other amp. Would appreciate any advice that anyone can give me.
