Ciao Massimo,
I've been using the LL2745 lately in 5.6:2 for a tad more of gain but without increasing too much the output resistance and the performance is really good. I prefer this one compared to the LL1660.
cheers,
Ale

That's interesting. I just tried out the LL1635 in 1:1 and it's disappointing - light on bass and less detail than the LL1660. I have a LL1692 I can try

I don't think 1:1 is a good approach for the 26. The Ra is too high so probably won't be great in bass and less efficient driving your cables and amp input. If you need more gain go for increasing the gain of your driver instead?

Is it really necessary to suspend the 26 tubes from the chassis? Just want to know.

It's really a pleasure look your work, it's always an inspiration, thanks to share. These four tubes are VR regs. or are you including a phono stage?

It looks neat outside, but to me it is always torture to see heatsinks with fins oriented perpendicularly to air flow. Like sandpaper on teeth. :-)
