Unless money is very tight, you can do MUCH better than a Solen output cap.

I'd try it with AC filaments, lifted to about 25V.

6K is probably a little low for the load in the best of circumstances, but because you have left Rk unbypassed, the rp of the tube is in the 8K range making the load way too low. I would either bypass Rk with a suitable cap, or replace it with a LED.

Hi, do you take the output from cathode, anode or grid?

Thanks,
do you need voltage gain?
If so how much?
Note the the anode output inverts the phase.

I built this design and added gas regulators to it. Look around the site and you will find the schematic and the power supply. When built as he designed it has ZERO noise. The chokes are an important part in the design and cost very little. I would eliminate the fancy caps and led and build as shown. When you are comfortable with it then dive into a CCS and see if there are any differences to be had.

I believe if you do a search a thread should turn up here.

Better in what way? And to whom?

I know what i'd do. Get rid of all the nice and cosy carbon comps and Kiwame resistors. They help produce a pleasant but also very coloured sound. Put some Caddocks in place.

Replace the anode resistor with a choke and experience a really serious improvement.

Replace the diodes with mercury rectifiers or tv dampers. Obviously the entire PS will need redoing then.
