Audio Research versus McIntosh tube amps: anyone experience or compare both?
I have mine on low (3 available speeds) and can't hear them.  Things seem to stay cool enough.  Might need a higher speed if your room is hot, but them you wouldn't want the amp on for super long anyway.  Biasing is pretty easy.  I think the VT10... 
Audio Research versus McIntosh tube amps: anyone experience or compare both?
Used ARC REF150se sometimes trade for $6,000 or less, if you need more watts.  I own one.  Great amp.  I think undervalued on the used market, but that's the market.

Synergistic Powercell 12UEF SE a worthy upgrade?
@ronrags  I also have both a Core Power Technologies Equicore 1800 MK3 and Deep Core 1800 and have wondered the same thing.  Please let me know your results if you try a higher end power conditioner.   -docknow  
Martin Logan CLS vs Newer Hybrids Like Montis, Summit X, 9A, 11A

How to connect susb to my system
So what happens when you decrease the load driven by the preamp below its minimum specification? The extra current demand on the output stage softens dynamic impact and results in generally poorer sound as the vacuum tube output stage struggles to... 
How to connect susb to my system
The Thorny Math of Impedance: Nearly all ARC vacuum tube preamps are rated to drive a connected load (read amplifiers) of not less than 20,000 ohms (20K ohms). What does this mean? The output stage of a vacuum tube preamp has a high source impeda... 
How to connect susb to my system
@leog2015 I have a REF6 (now SE) and used to feed my Martin-Logan BL210 with a pair of single-end connectors, until I read a document that used to be up on the ARC website (that whole section has been taken done).  After I did the impedence calcul...

SabrinaX Sub-Crossover
@upstateaudiophile you should definitely consider using ARC to tune your subs.  I would be talking to both Wilson and ML to get advice on the crossover parameters you are asking about.
