Yep, it doesn't need to be that big, maybe 3u3 would be good, possibly smaller. Maybe a good place for a oil cap.

You might reduce the 100k by the DC resistance of the choke to keep the same voltage. maybe not worth bothering. 150H might not be enough, but its worth trying. Shiuld be a simple enough change to try, I would just use a couple of small electrolytic caps first, to see how the sound is with the choke.
Resistance isn't futile it's V / I.

a Little bit more knowledge learned thanks just to be sure the Hammond choke is the 156C 150H @ 8mA 3700 ohms from bluebell

Richard did a special one for Jammy, twin power supplies I think.

I'm hatching plans for a 300B headphone amp; essentially the same circuit as my 300B SE-OTL power amps but just one 300B per channel (instead of four).

Well Jammy, you said it can't be bettered, but how many other headphone amps have you heard ?

Probably not that many, so my original quote is accurate. :lol:

Perhaps you can enlighten us as to what headphone amps you have listened to so as to put your judgement into perspective.

I'd be interested to hear your opinions.

I was trying to get you to see the difference between

A) The best you have ever heard.

and

B) The best there is.

That's all.

Let me know when you have both worked out what "best" means in the last few emails.
