RE: ...ARC hybrids

If I were to choose to obsess over one thing about my ARC pre, it would be the single triode tube in the phono section that stays lit up and aging no matter the input source I am using. Be it the tuner, CD, or tapes, the phono tube is always hotted up. And these days, the tuner is my most frequent input.

I would think that it could be possible to have a switch to control this action, though I haven't ever see a preamp have it.

The other thing I have gotten over, is ARCs recent and current pricing structure. ARC is no longer "in the picture" at all in my world. I'll be happy with what I have until I croak.
