RE: Revox G36 settings for playback\

After I play the Revox for about a 1/2 hour it starts to hum loudly. It doesn't do it on the input setting but is on Tape 2 or tape 1+2. Does that sound like a tube going bad? Anyway, other ideas? Also, it seems to distort on loud orchestral passages. On soft passages, the tone is incredibly beautiful. I have been listening to 1/4 track prerecorded tapes and thought it was just a function of the tapes but now think it could be the machine. All your previous help has been sincerely appreciated. Bob
