Setting bias on a vintage ARC
Not yet on calling ARC. I’ve check the bias on my CLASSIC 60 but it didn’t require adjustment. I did download the manual and checked the bias adjustment procedure, but it’s not clear other than to say to set an “average” bias of 37.5 and the numbe... 
Help me identify this label on tubes
Thanks!  It would appear it has a 188 code, so it is a GE tube.  
Audio Research V35
The tubes are KT 90’s. Not sure what the sonic advantages and disadvantages are between these and 6550’s are. I bias my Classic 60, a pain, but not terribly difficult with the right probes a patience. I have a BAT VK-3ix balanced preamp, so it sho... 
New Klipsch Forte III’s
Thanks for all the responses. I will ride it out a few months and check back. I have nothing specific against using the REL other than I like the idea of all the sound coming from one source. I will tell you I am loving the big sound these speaker...

@lalitk Why do you say tailor made?  Do you know the gage of each wire, or your best guess?

My SP-9 speaker cables came in last night. I replaced the PAD cables I had and the immediate difference appears to be more clarity and not as dark. They appear to add or take away nothing, at least compared to the PAD cables. My only complaint is ...

It looks to me to be a hollow copper pipe, which should compress a bit to fit tightly if that is the case.  
Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
This only happens when the vinyl is playing. It does the same thing on 3 different TT’s with 3 different carts, all carts are known to work with the TT’s, so a mismatch is highly highly unlikely at this point.  
Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
yes it still does.  Not only that I turned off every circuit breaker in the house other than the one it was plugged into in another room and it still did it

Yes it does.

If I had to guess, I’d say 2-3 oscillations a second. Though the amount it moves in and out each time varies.  
Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
Well. I literally tried everything there is to try. Nothing worked . . .. . . except the KAB unit. It does affect the sound, but I need more time to figure out exactly what has changed. But the GD woofer pumping is DONE!

I have an early prototype he made up for me after a conversation I had with him about me wanting to see if the prestige IC would work. I use it on my Technics 1200GR and it goes to my Parasound JC3+. As usual very clear and natural.
