Does plugging something in the front headphone jack mute the back rca output or do they both play at the same time？
I have not tried it but the schematic I have seen shows they would both play but I am unsure what that would do to the load felt by the Output tube. The recommendation for a switch mod to be installed here indicates that at best there is some interaction that is not good here and at worst that you may improperly load your tube and cause a problem running both outputs at the same time for very long. Tubes are quite resilient and can take some serious abuse for a little bit. SS transistors not a chance, overload them and they are goners.
I've run the preamp out and headphones for over a day now, both work simultaneously and no issues to report so far.
