I remembered an old Scott audio trick: They actually used their 4 12AX7's in the preamps, to function as the cathode resistors for their output tubes. I think they used 7189 or EL84's. They put them in series with a cap across them, and they were very quiet. An old timer I worked with at the time said that, "this is the quietest DC filament supply you could get at the time". I assume this was because you didn't have DC regulators like we do today (practical ones at least). Cool concept.
