Here, in my opinion only, just looking only, never hearing this amp, but I think I already know, of what is wrong with that:
(1) It looks like its three stages, rather than two.
(2) It seems to have a coupling cap in it, the worst possible way to couple..
(3) It uses a 300B tube, not the best tube.
(4) It has large, single, conventional-looking choke, and likely, a high DCR B+ filter.
(5) Its RCA jacks, are located way too far away from the input tube's grid.
(6) It seems to use an added cathode follower stage, which is sort of like having anal sex with a woman, rather than vaginal.
You should have built your own, and done a whole lot better than that.
JUST MY opinion. I certainly don't think like everyone else. YMMV of course ! You asked us to respond !!

Ask how a Output Tranny would feel? 2 or 3 bundle of wires going to the output of the output tranny!

Hope yours aren't tie wrapped together after the end bell's exit, IF it uses an end bell. What about those that don't ??!! Yeah, I know, you will inform us all " the wires touch in the wind ". Ha !
At least, you are consistent. Have a good day !!
You might change your mind. Armchair theorizing can only take you so far.
You are right about one thing though. It would be nice to have the input jack right next to the tube.

Yes for sure. keep it coming. I'm taking notes
Espcially #6, which I am sure he must have SOME first hand information (one way or the other) ;-)
Howz it going??
I have wanted to tell someone that analogy, MY own analogy, about Cathode Followers for a long tome, and now, do so - when I still can. This was the time !! In my immature mind, I find it hilarious.
Does anyone recall the SET amp shootout in Terry Cain's RMAF room, after hours, with the Art Audio, etc etc,- and Dennis' Serious Stereo 2A3?? It wiped out everything, and Joe Fratus stood up and gave Dennis a standing ovation !! Its gotten a bit better, over time.
That said, Joe is a good guy so I'm not that surprised.
Those were magic!
LMAO...cammon now... be nice
