Wow Audio Research stuff is getting ugly.
Wonder if those tubes will work in my D90.

i don't think that the tube sockets on the 305's are spaced out enough to fit KT150's

Size is not an issue BJ.  They fit .  The issue is heat and whether the power supply can handle the 150s.

They fit the 305's but heat is a huge issue.  A lot less room between the tubes.

The ARC GS150 is designed with two fans in the back,  looks like the KT-150s do put out some serious heat.
