Thanks for your comments. The DC threshold for most job should be around the 12 o clock. No it does not change the circuit just the slope ie soft compression to more true limiting and that is what you are hearing. the ratio of loud to soft bits. The input is usually about 9 o clock for unity. I normally for mastering set for 4 dBs of gain then what I send can easily be limited with about 3 to 5 dbs of compression just to tighten up the leveling without it being obvious.
Tube life should excede 10 years. I have not retubed any any other the units in The Exchange a mastering facility in London. Did things like The Propellor Heads and Bojk.
Your loading of another 680 Ohms on the output will not effect the frequency response. but will just lower the output by about 3 dB. Output impeadance is about 250 Ohm
