If you don't need to drive speakers, why not getting dedicated tube headphone amp(perhaps Consonance)?

I fully agree with your tube decision. Although, many vintage models applied the headphone output as more of a secondary add-on feature in a way. I myself would choose a purpose built Headphone only system for your application. I DO really love vintage components, tho my system consists of (nice:) modern tube components. When I (less often) listen to headphones, I use AKG K1000 which are designed to connect directly to amplifiers speakers outputs. Btw, I use Wavelength 300B or 45 Amplifiers
