I use the Ref210 and the fans are quite noisy, but are drowned out by the music at even really quiet levels
Not heard the ref 110 but used a VT100-3 for a while and the fans were inaudible.
Of course turn the amp off when not in use. the tubes are wearing out when switched on regardless of use
Use the taps closest to the speakers impedence. If they are 4 ohms, use that tap
I love ARC stuff and the reference series is their best ever
Ref 110 is a very good sounding amp, bass is excellent after a vs110, i used one for a while,unfortunately the fans drove me mad though, in my view they ruin the music if you cant listen above a certain level late at night. I did set them on low but still irritating. I'd disconnect them and live with shorter tube life but at 9K (gbp) i wasn't happy. Apart from that it made music very well and with Ref 3 it always will..
Try it first..
