Default Lower supply rails for this amp?

Can this amp run on +40/-40 supply rails?

Shouldn't be any problem as far as I can see, but the maximum
output power will be lower, of course. A rough calculation would
be around 55W in 8 Ohms.

Maybe one should lower the value of R3 correspondingly, but
that is probably not necessary.

Thanks Christer!
I think that 55W in 8 ohms are enough !

Change R3 to 39K

Because of the lateral MOS this amplifier will only do about 40W at 8 ohms with a simple 40V supply.

The Hafler DH120, SE120 use about the same circuit and 52V and do 60W/8R or 90W/4R(1Khz)
