Nice minimal construction, Romy.

How do you keep the pots from drifting?

Have you thought of using small batteries for the filaments?  I have not tried it yet myself, but it is the next thing on my list; dead simple and dead quiet, if you can put aside your anti-battery prejudice.

Gary Pimm over at Nutshell has a couple of ideas that look interesting, and you probably already know about Steve Bench's quiet, 2-channel PS (it is SS, however no reason you could not use tube diodes, if you must).

Did you split the correction over the 2 gain halves or use 1/2 as a cathode follower, or?

Best regards,
Paul S
