Should be fine..The Sonographe is great!

Agreed, but for now I will have to stick with my AR pre...I imagine that I could achieve better sound through the synergy with matched amp and pre. That being said, I'm hoping that someone could share their knowledge or experience and help me determine if I can get enjoyable sound from this combo, or am I going to be frustrated/disappointed.
thanks - Paul
I do not believe that you will have a problem pairing most SS preamps with your Sonographe SA-400. I ran an SA-400 with a CJ PF-R SS pre for a while - it worked very well. I have also paired the SA-400 with an Audio Reseach LS-15 tube unit and it was also a good match. You should have no problems with your LS-3B.
If you do ever want to kick it up a notch; look for a good used CJ PV-12 tube pre.
Great speakers, assuming that you have the right room for them. As much as I like the Sonographe SA-400, IMHO you will need both a better amp and pre to get the most out of the VR4s. They can be tough speakers on electonics - VERY detailed and revealing. If it were me I would probably replace the LS-3B first.
