if your bringing a valve amp that is not auto biasing, you will need to rebias at scalford, my vac pa60 fell from 72ma at home to 60ma at scalford

Sometimes I think I might know a little bit about Hi-Fi and then somebody posts/says something that kicks my "knowledge" into a ditch.

I'll get my coat, thank you :minikev:

That's a bit strange. Unless something got knocked, I wouldn't expect any change (slightly different mains voltage could have a marginal effect.)

Thanks for the warning - I will keep an eye on my Audioprism's meter.

For what it's worth, I took the amp to Brussels a couple of years ago, and the left channel reading dropped and needed adjustment - when we got back to the UK I had to adjust it again as it was reading too high.

Must be mains related then, though I'm surprised it's so unstable. Did both move in the same direction?
