Dan, have you seen this?

Thank you noromance, yes I have seen it, but I was hoping to hear from someone that has actually built one, and listened to it in action. I'm not too sure if I should even tackle it, considering the high voltages it uses, but curiosity about this amplifier type that needs? to be sated is driving me, and I've always wanted to build a tube amp.
Well, I taught myself to solder pretty well, so that's not an issue. Possibly killing myself IS an issue. The vendor will build the unit, if requested. That shoots down my idea of building it myself, which I do enjoy. I've built three Class D amps, a tube line stage, crossovers & wiring up my speakers (plus doing a considerable amount of house wiring), so I have a bit of confidence, but there's still no guarantee that I, or the amp, will survive the ordeal...
Check and double check and then check again all connections and layout before you power it up. Power it up with a variac.
Safety from when I used service CRTs many years ago.
