After doing the Scope clock project I was feeling in an "antique mood". So I bought some big nixie tubes on eBay from Russia and also I bought the nixie tube driver. It's a 74141 and it can handle 200 volts!
I use only one driver and I scan my tubes one at a time and also I use PWM during this scan to create the digit dimming. Included is a 7 watt audio power amp to deliver my wake up tune which is done via 2 PWM channels on my AVR. Also it's adjustable via IR remote control and the clock is maintained with a battery backup. If there is a power failure at the time your clock is supposed to play the wake up song, a big beeeeepp from a piezo will be used. There is no way to stay asleep!
