RE: It's NOT Sakuma

"...following his concept of like tube driving like tube,"

That's only one of many concepts Sakuma explored and implemented in his designs. Ironically, the "Sakuma Style" amplifier schematic you posted doesn't even do that. One tube in pentode, the other in triode is not the concept of interest. This is simply a case of a hanger-on attempting to affiliate sketchy and unrelated work with that of a master. As for what you're doing, it might be accurate to say you're experimenting with one of Sakuma's concepts, but even that's questionable. Unless you're planning to replace the 6BQ5s with DHTs, it's overtly dishonest to refer to the work you're proposing as having any relation to that of Susumu Sakuma. Argue all you want, but that's the long and short of it.

Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
