A really big regulator.

Default LOL

Yeah. It would be big. I was thinking more along the line of using 8 of the 6080's in a se design. Any ideas?

hey-Hey!!!,
The plate Z of 16 6080 sections in parallel would be quite low...now driving( not to mention biasing) them all at once would be an issue...
cheers,
Douglas

30 -- 35W Circlotron OTL. Ten 6080 sections / phase can produce as much as 3.0Ap current. Into an 8R load, that comes to 36W. The 5U4s won't be very useful there, since they won't be able to source that much current, but one of them could certainly power the front end, if you so desired, although it would be overkill to use that twin diode for a rather low powered application.

hey-Hey!!!,
Nice thing about the 36W limit is that you'll only need to deliver +/-23 volts p-p to do it...not going to need a heroic amplifier stage ahead of it.
cheers,
Douglas
