Von Schweikert VR4 JR and Krell 400xi?
Well Ive owned VR-4IIISE and Vr-8. Krell to me was Not a good choice compared to good tube amplification. Period.This was ksa 250 And Mda300. Maybe the newer models are better but id listen before purchase.

If you run Amplifiers with high sensitivity say anything under 1 1/2 volt pass on the unit. i owned 4 of these, The only way you will get it right is the L-1 Or L-2 because of the balance controls. But its you time and money so have fun.

L-2 has much better control on Volume level, this is a ISSUE for audible illusions units 
Balanced Phono question - forgive my ignorance
Be sure the preamp you choose is true fully balanced, or there is additional gain opamps involved that will DEGRADE the sound. Over here balanced sounds lifeless as single ended is much more involving. Belles preamp
