When I was at the stage you are my budget for a table saw was about half of yours, so I got the Delta 36-725 at Lowe’s for around $600. I’ve since added an Irwin Marples multipurpose blade and the Incra LS-TS fence system and their miter gage and cross-cut sled system. I’m probably at $1,000 into the saw and upgrades at this point and I’m very happy with the results I get from it.

If I ever upgrade from here it will be to a SawStop or Powermatic saw in the $2,200 – $2,500 range. Those are my “one and done” saws but it wasn’t practical from a marital harmony standpoint at the time. In the range you are looking you are probably limited to Jet and Grizzly for new saws or a good used Powermatic.
