    It’s an all DHT amp. 10y/26 tubes for the input driving either type 50 or 300B.

    @CEE TEE: I'd have to look under the hood for the exact numbers on choke inductance and PT specs but it's definitely overbuilt. In a nutshell, the PSU uses 816 MV rectifiers bridged with 6ax4 dampers. Filter caps are all film instead of electrolytic. Separate filament regulation for both drivers and power tubes ect.

    @rhythmdevils: Would be glad to. Things will be a bit hectic for the next few weeks (new job ect.) but hopefully I'll be able to form some impressions by the end of next month.
