Default Want to build a 807 Vixen.. Looking for help.

So, after looking at the various 807 designs out there, the Vixen looks to be a good bet.

Looking to get the details on the parts values.

I did a similar design using 1625s, with fantastic results:

One monoblock shown.

The tubes can deliver.
But looking at the Vixen it seems an incredible waste of tubes.
My design has only two stages and it gave a near-perfect 25 watts.
5 tubes per side.


But its not a normal design, although it uses 'ordinary' components.
The most expensive pieces were the output xformers.

Any info on yours would be greatly appreciated. Have a decent stash of 807's and 1625's. Have been looking around for something to build using them, but haven't really seen anything with much positive feedback. Was looking for something at least 15 watts so they could drive my 89 db monitors also.
