If anyone's interested, I built a clone of the amplifier circuit in my much loved Kriesler Multisonic Stereo. Pretty straightfoward, but I used EL84 valves in place of the 6M5s, and had to tweak the power supply resistor values a bit. I used a Hammond 370JX for the power transformer and Hammond 125CSEs for the OTs. If anything, it sounds better than the original. I'd recommend it if you want a low power system for lounge room use.

Interesting project. What was your motivation? I'm guessing it wasn't merely to avoid the 6M5s (with pin changes 6BQ5's can be used)

I like the sound of the Kriesler so much that I wanted to be sure I could reproduce it with current production parts if I ever needed. I did use an EZ80 for the rectifier, but a current valve could be used if the power supply was redesigned. Besides, what's life without a challenge or two. Plus I get to see the valves glow while it's on.
