Default Simple headphones out

I have a tube preamplifier and I would like to add a HP out in it which is in par with the rest. Space is quite limited so I can not build an additional tube stage with output transformer. I am looking for some simple yet good quality solid-state circuit for my headphones (2x30 ohms). I think I need a gain between 2x and 5x. I have +12V available. Can I use an integrated buffer, like the BUF03 () which I believe is out of production) or the new AD815? Any ideas welcome.

There is a lot of info here on tube and solid-state circuits:

If you go for a solid state buffer then take a look at the new National Semiconductor LME49600.
