Higher forward voltage so a bit more headroom for the cascode.

Having decided to go for a two box solution with umbilical, are there any layout issues I need to be aware of? Can the two toroidals interact?

Should be fine. Keep the heater reg and shunt reg in the same box as the phono.

All coming together nicely now, just awaiting the arrival of a couple of cases from China.

Is there a specific value for the VDR across the mains input?

Yep, that will be fine.

Nearly there. Checking the current draw through the various stages, the whole phono board is pulling about 5ma, and the 60ohm resistor is passing 31ma, so 26ma is being shunted through the gas tubes which seems about right. HT is a little high at 260v, but I guess that's down to the tolerances of the gas tubes.

I'm puzzled about the earthing arrangements. Does the 100ohm earth lift resistor go to the HT 0v rail? If so, does that mean that the 40v lift on the heater supply is also biassing the 9v windings of the transformers, and if so, does it matter?

Yes. The heater is raised wrt the valves cathode and the ground is linked to earth via the 100r. The 9v tx doesn't care.
