I have a great respect for a layout like that. Much more difficult than most realize. Almost as nice as the circuit, I am sure. SE only?

The caps are too tall for the top of the board, so they are mounted "upside
down"

It's been awhile now since TO-3s were in a new Pass amp...beautiful! Mr. Pass, did Sony commission you to build these or you just have a lot of Sony SITs in storage needing a special project?

Crazy =)

How do you solve biasing, are they all super matched so you can use one bias supply per side?

And on the topic on supply, do you know if they will manufacture more VFETs, possibly new modern ones?
