Default CCS loading first stage of DC coupled driver


I was wondering whether it's possible to CCS load the first stage of a dc coupled triode? The second stage is driving an interstage trafo.

Seems to me it should work, if I keep the load resistor to ensure correct voltage for the next stage?

You need to be careful of the second stage's input capacitance, both direct and Miller, since this will negatively impact bandwidth. Sometimes it's necessary to interpose a follower between first and second stages just for that reason.
