Default Increase Rail Voltage for Aleph?

I just built an Aleph 30 from BrianGT's board using 3 pairs of output. I have the rails at +-24V. My heatsinks are big enough that I can bias the output a bit higher. Can I drop in an +-37V PSU safely? Would the output see a higher bias? Any other recommanded modifications? Thanks.

Ok, so no need to modify any resistor values?
