A friend of mine (Bob Danielak) made an amp using the "Sakuma principle" of transformer coupling and using the same tube for driver and final output.

He called it the "Sakuma Darling" and it used a step-up transformer at the input (4:1) into a 1626, interstage transformer coupled to a 1626.

We listened to several different 1626 amps together and in some ways this was my favorite, this approach clearly has a lot of merit.

then you definetely should try it our yourself , using the #46 tetrode, or how RCA preferred to call them, "dual grid tube". The tube is meant for that!
Sakuma style #46, this would be a killer!
