Ah, its an old celebrated electronics thing the grids and plates, magic in the glowing glass etc. must be much about. Wikipedia I suppose, tube blogs, classic thermionic engineering articles you can google up, and of course do a search for triode and tetrode/pentode, triode strapped pentode VS pentode in DIYA, the most in depth musing about tube audio amps modes is here by a good chance.

Salas,
I have read other places that when arranging chokes and caps, you sometimes have to be careful about arrangement. Is the arrangement in the pic OK or will it cause problems between different components. Cjoke will be enclosed in wood boax matching main amp. White box is tube rectifier.

Going t be setting up a little test bed today. I am going to add my new choke and film caps to the PSU, but before making final decision bout tube vs SS rectification, I am going to wire it up with a switch so that I can hear both SS and tube rectifiers going through the new choke and caps. Time for a little AB testing.
