What is from your view the main disadvantage by circuit from post #18 in opposite to that one from post #17 ?

The input cascode (at first look a differential amp) from post #17 provides rather an advantage compare with a normal one-stage input section from post #18.
OTOH - crucial should be the audible differences between both solutions.

In the Frank Blöhbaum article it described only a useless configuration called "best pentode"

tiefbassuebertr,
yes the differential is not a bad solution about feedback

Actually I am working to a servo loop to have no dc offset because after some test with the hybrid configuration with mje15032 I have seen a very low stability using only a trimmer.

Nice project!
Any plans to try the Semisouth JFETs in the output?

Here two other circlotron topologies:

The Amazing Fet Circlotron by Mike Rothacher

I would try to replace the tube with a VAS stage like this (introduced magic resistor and cascoded cascode):

This topology must actually clearly beat all exist small signal tubes in all respects, as long as high supply voltage is still present.

Why is it useless in your opinion?
