Contragulations, That is the ONLY other design I have seen for a LF amplifier using directly rectified mains. apart from my own half-bridge version http://g4jnt.com/137tx.pdf
After building that, I always intended doing a full bridge one, but never got round to it - was a bit scared I suspect, and back then FETs were more expensive than they are now.
Yes i published it on Dropbox a few years ago but i think the link
doesn't work any more. I attach the two images here, the size is small
