The Talmud is the source of Halacha and not the Shulchan Aruch. The Shulchan Aruch, on the other hand, is really 'only' a useful guide as to which opinions within the Talmud are accepted as normative Halacha, and what normative Halacha considers to be proper applications of the numerous general concepts found in the Talmud. In that sense the Shulchan Aruch (with the Rema) is the most major/accepted Halachic authority, but the Talmud is still the source of all Halacha, and in theory the only authority a Posek needs to answer to.
