Default Aikido preamp muting

This is my first tube project. I have a working aikido 24v version with 6gm8 tubes. I have used Broskie's pcb. I wish to mute the outputs during power on. Is it fine to short the outputs like one does in SS preamps?

Just to clarify, you short the outputs to ground during power up. I saw the e12 and it passes the signal through the relays instead of shorting them.
