Well, I've got a set of 4311 b's, a Crown PS200 on the way (thanks Triumph Don), now I'm looking for a tube preamp.

Preferably something from the same era or close to it, must have a phono stage, preferably with tone controls. Was thinking AR SP3 might fit the bill.

But I really have no idea and am open to suggestions. It could also be something modern, there seems to be a dizzying array of stuff out there. I'd also prefer something north american, to go with the other north american stuff in the chain. But that's not a deal breaker and price is a consideration too. Don't really want anything that outperforms the other gear in the chain.

Ok, once again, thanks for all suggestions that may be forthcoming!
