Woofers shake uncontrollably at moderate volumes with turntable source; why?

When increasing the amplifier volume beyond a certain level, my speakers' woofers begin to shake spasmodically when my turntable is the source. However, the same problem doesn't occur with a digital source at higher volumes. What's goin' ahn? [more inside]

Integrated Amps: Marantz PM8003?

As Marantz has introduced a new (but hardly improved) model, Music Direct is selling the PM8003 integrated amplifier for half usual MSRP ($499 vs. $999). From what I've read, it's a splendid piece of kit, and a solid value before the drastic discount. My question for you; would you recommend something else, for $500 or less, that you feel is superior to the Marantz? In terms of sonic character, I favor impartiality, perhaps slight warmth, but balance and purity foremost, if that informs suggestions at all. I'd like to feel I've surveyed my options thoroughly before going through with the purchase.
