I think i have seen this in Jean Hiraga's book , la maison de l'audiophile used many penthode - triode designs using
Western electric tubes in general .The only thing i dont like to much is the automatic bias .
please note this amp is likely to hum slightly .
i suspect the diode rectification is because the first 2 powersupply caps are quite large to kill ripple .
