Another good reason to have a back up amp.
Just in case.
Thanks Guys, i could solder the resistor in no big deal, but finding the part is , i waiting for ARC to reply as regards to the part, i need PRC SM186 1.0 - 4 wires there is another small resistor soldered together with the PRC SM186.
Yes , i do have back up amp that is my old Krell FPB600. Have it fo rover 15 years never fail ,well ARC is my first power tube amp, for the sound i don't mind the trouble unless i have the $$$ to get the Pass labs XS300 or 150. living with 610T for 9 months now, i ready love it so is my wife. I even bought 36 spares 6550sed c winged before it when out of stock. So plenty of tubes for another many years to come. So is my Aesthetix Callisto eclipse and IO sgn. time to time very little problem, all tubes bounce to have problem.
Anyone knows where to get parts? i should buy 10 for spare
I would bring the amp to you local ARC dealer. Even if you did not buy the amps from him he is still your dealer. He probably has resistors and other small parts on hand. He may fix the problem for free just to show some good will. Hoping you will buy from him in the future.
I had a similar problem and needed to replace a couple of resistors when I blew a tube. I called ARC, as I have done so many times in the past 30 years. They told me I needed to send them an email. I remember when they wouldn’t use email. After over a week of waiting they replied to my email. "You need to go through your dealer for parts". That was it! No help at all. The service department is not what it once was under Leonard or even Kalvin. I remember a time when Leonard would toss a couple resistors in an envelope and send them to you no charge.
My dealer had the resistors and replaced the parts while I went and had lunch. So it all worked out in the end.
ARC service dept, definitely is very slow in replying cannot reach them on phone, Aesthetix is great company , no problem calling them at all, i am trying to buy the the Power resistor,
I found supplier here but not sure this is the right one
3W wirewound resistor http://www.precisionresistor.com/SM186-3W-Wire-Wound-Precision-Power-Resistor.html
Anyone know this is right Power resistor to be replace for 610T on V2.
