Been lurking here for a while...I think I will whack up this linestage on a DIY PCB. I have a regulated B+ and heater supply that will work nicely.

Thoughts on the layout? I didnt label anything but it is a pretty simple design. Only thing I am struggling with is the input ground on the "right hand" side.

I would P2P it but my chassis layout sort of demands as low a profile as possible.

EDIT

I plan to use a regulated 12.6V heater supply so 6V6's wired in series. Is this thinking OK? Supply is good for 2A.

Sure. Use same tube brands preferably. 6V6 is prolly ok but for example 6C33 i had examples where i had to match even filaments if putting them in series ps. who cares about football anyway?
Edit
And I would make a star-grounding b4 putting everything to chassie if I were you, looking at the pic.

Being 'simple' for a design and performing well is no mean feat. I don't think a printed circuit board makes an improvement for the circuit as it's built from a handfull of parts, some bulky resistors and electrolytes which you may want to exchange in future.

For the voltage regulator a PCB might save you some space but again it's good practice to have this few parts hard wired to the reg on a sink. When heating 6V6 in series, be sure to use the 'GT' version as they have a fixed warm up period. Older types don't so you'll possibly ruin the heater. From a developper's view not so safe idea in my opinion.

Football? Tennis you mean

Dude I hardwired 2 SSHV2 on a cooler. I think it was somewhere there I had to consult my shrink. I recommend everyone to start discoing here. That means skip regs, build a proper c-r-c and listen. Then add **** and listen

Tennis is my life

I had mine wired up with a temporary PSU from another project I will likely abandon on a test bench. With switching of no signals or speaker hookups all I got was loud hummm. I switched the 6v6 pre output so signal goes to RCA output ground and ground goes to RCA output and hum was much less but no gain and the volume control in the path did nothing.

If I put the RCA cable signal (center pin) on the ground part of the RCA output(outer ring) then I get a clean, quiet signal with no gain but it is very quiet.

So, I am thinking I need to have all my signal wiring as per "normal" signal to signal and ground to ground and switch my speaker outputs on the power amp?

Also, heater voltages in line, B+ of 315v, and 14V on the cathodes. Otherwise built exactly per the original schematic.
