Build Started: LINK
Build Finished / Pictures: LINK
update: Still running strong! I use it everyday. Changed the led color for something... warmer...
Ok so here is the Final Design, It works great and is simple to build. I have come a long way since I started this thread.
I used DIYLC for this project and here is the board design, feel free to modifie it and share it around. It would be nice, if you choose to use this, to post results in this thread.
Great Source of Info and BOM here: DIYForum
update: Realise I never had uploaded the design file.
SSHM V3.6.3.diy.zip 4k .zip file
Here is an updated diagram with fixes and clarification from KimLaroux.
Note that the red marks are cut strip
Note: Use bigger heatsink than me!

Well here i finished my Cmoy amp and since helped 3 friends make one as well because they fell in love with mine... I am probably not the first person in this situation.
I really want to make a desktop amp and i thought that a Vacum tube amp would be great (awesome vintage look in bonus) so naturally i looked at the Millet Starving Student Hybrid amp for it's simplicity as i am still a beginner.
The problem is that im not a fan of messy wiring, i was wondering if someone had made a stripboard layout for such an amp?
Also the concern of the unavailability of the 19J6 tubes.
The closer i found was this: Spanish Link
it does look simple but not much info is available on "the kaidan"
Any info on this simpler amp? Note the use of higher voltage.
