    Looks like the 6CA4 is a replacement. It's a rectifier, correct?

    You'd need a DC voltage regulator. Shouldn't be too to whip up a little circuit, do a Google search on it. There's more involved than a simple resistor, though...

    Nah, I think I'm going single-ended triode for the time being, with my little EL84 stereo amp...

    but thanks anyway for the offer! Good to know fellow tube junkies are on the boards.
