Yes, that's it.
If someone chooses to use 18V batteries, R17 has to be 1KOhm.

Close enough, and batteries are a great way to go with it.

I have SME 30/2 turntable, fitted with Ortofon Jubilee cartridge and using Ortofon T 20 MK II moving coil step up transformer on my Audio Research SP10 MK II.
Well what can I tell you? Sounds like dream and I just can't get enough listening my huge record collection..
Time ago I could buy SL10 from a guy in Amsterdam but I had to go on business trip next day so I asked him to keep it for me till I get back. He probably thought I was kidding and sold it.
Anyway.. I was talking to mr. Tiefenbrun (Linn's father) one day, and he told me that any step up transformer beat transistor based head amps hands down..
Since you are Treshold founder and designer of SL 10 I am really interested to hear your opinion on this..
You might be a tubeneck if your date says "is that a tube in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" And it is a tube...

Just a casual opinion

The Ortofon T20 falls way below the level of your front end. Many active devices, both tube and SS will certainly sound better. It took me, in fact years to find a step-up transformer that sounds decent and actually better than an active step-up.

Not so sure about most common base circuits as they typically require a large electrolytic coupling cap in a very sensitive position.
