EL84 plate voltage question

Bob DeRosa EL84 plate voltage question
Iíve got just over 300 volts on the plates of my EL84ís in my DC30 clone and Iím wondering if I should bother getting it up to 340 like the schematics say.  
The good news is my screen voltage is right around 300 volts which seems to be the limit for long tube life with these tubes.  
Iíve only got the EF86 channel hooked up so far and it sounds great, Iím wondering what Iím missing (if anything) by having such a low B+.
