The Sovtek 5AR4 is satisfactory, IF the series SS diode tweak is employed. I prefer UF4007s over the 1N4007s shown in the graphic. The thinking is less SS switching noise, from the outset, can't be bad. However, the vacuum rectifier definitely keeps any SS artifacts out of the PSU filter. Still, less is more here.
