I would head towards your top budget of £1000 as most amps in the £500 would not be a massive improvement to what you already have, bearing in mind many of the budget amps are starting around £500 nowadays. e.g. Marantz 6007, Denon PMA-800NE. What about amps like Marantz PM8006, Arcam SA20, Denon PMA-1600NE, Audiolab 8300A.

Apologies, I would prefer an amp with no Phono Stage, as I would not be using it.



Yes
Well you don't have to exclude amps with phonostages just because you're not gonna be using their phono inputs. If the amp sounds good and has the features you need, the rest is just extras. I mean avoiding a Supernait 3 just because it has a phonostage doesn't make a lot of sense to me, it's still a kick-a** amp.
But yes, do audition the M2si too.
