Thanks for the reply Magz.

The CCS are available right here:

K & K Audio - Lundahl Transformers, audio DIY kits and more

I used the Large Cascode CCS with heat sink for the VR tubes and the Compact Cascode CCS for the 26 tubes. The schematic is just the usual one for a CCS made from depletion mode MOSFETs (see picture below) except K&K uses 910R resistors instead of 1K, and there isn't a resistor on the input.

Thanks Magz. So you use Mu out/or normal out.

Normal out. It gives better power supply rejection than the mu out, and I achieve low output impedance by using an output transformer.

If you are looking for an active load solution, it may be worth checking out the thread on the DiyHifiSupply DHT OTL Linestage

It is a 2A3 or 45 linestage pre, with a "Super MU" active load, made up of an IXCP10M45S based CSS with a 6AS7 above it.

Best of luck.

You have the schematic to share.........

The schematic is not mine to share, but if you check out the DiyHifiSupply site and get hold of the Tram 2 manual, and the CCS Manual, I am sure it would be possible to piece it together.

btw it appears to use the MU out for low impedance drive

Just a caveat to the FR measurements - these were made with my laptop sound card, which has a 5K input impedance. In the real world with most amps the LF extension should be better due to higher input impedance, so the differences between the two transformers might not be as important.
