Nice! I like the black power switch and the volume knob!

Well I got this project finished and have spent several hours listening to it.

It sounds fantastic! No hum whatsoever, and is a very musical amp. I still have a few mods I want to experiment with, especially on the input section cathode bias scheme, but I am super pleased how it sounds as built in the below posted schematic. For a super simple design, it turned out great but I would suggest if this is someone's first build, pick a chassis a little bigger than the one I used, it was a tight fit.

Uploaded the last two videos, one has the final wiring and voltage testing. The last is a basic scope test and discussing some future minor mods I want to try.

This is the final schematic with voltages as read off my sample.
