Default 6v6 PP biasing question

Hi all adn thanks in advance for you help

I am trying to bias a Dared vp16 integrated. I have done so in the past
with my cheapo multimeter.

I am getting a very consistent reading of .75 v at all check terminals.
it is supposed to be .25, and was last biased at .225 after i had it worked on
i have changed out a couple tubes to slightly stronger ones.

how could have it changed so much? it sure doesn't seem to be running
stupid hot or anything.

any comments would be appreciated.

I've found cheapo multimeters very useful - as long as the battery isn't low ( or replaced with one of these fake Chinese batteries I've come across ). Beg borrow or steal another just to be sure and remeasure.
