in fact it is always the same .
someone asks a simple question and it goes in all directions while the most appropriate answers were given at the beginning of the thread.
a divider bridge and / or a triode arrangement of the EL34s.
it can not be easier and more effective to answer the question.

That's why I seldom enter a thread when it is longer than a couple of pages. By that time most are already a train wreck ;-)

And, lets call it what it is: you are NOT looking for a lower power amp. If the new amp has the same gain as the old one, it will sound exactly as loud as the old one!!
A 50W amp with 20x gain will sound just as loud on your speakers as a 20W amp with gain 20x. Get that. You want lower gain!!

I believe I said flea-watt. Typically 1-2W. You don't think that would do it? You'll save trees in the process.

It depends on who started, and for what purpose. ;-)

My thread has lot of wisdom added over the years by many contributors!
