When a way for others to build this amp comes about, perhaps as soon as month's end, think a dedicated tube thread for this amp would be helpful. Since it seems that production PCB/BoM will not deviate electronically from about mid-proto process, tube impressions will not differ between proto/prod.
There will be various synergies (e.g. tubes w/given cans), house sounds, etc. I'm finding my Amperex BB 6dj8 *very* similar to the $7.50 USD ebay std Amperex 6dj8 white-label I've mentioned (Edit: Both of which I love even tho D2000s already have plenty bass). And I wonder if their 8416s, 12au7s, etc are notably different sounding.

Wow, building my 41hz amp feels like a waste of time now! I am tempted to order one just to see how good it is in comparison.
Ha ha... I'm thinking the same & I need another
speaker amp like a hole in the head. Better for another thread but perhaps using this headamp w/some source switching, etc. as a pre is not that far off base... It does have muting delay + offset protection.
Also better for another thread, but maybe this
are t-amp mod threads MrSlim was thinking of...
