Its a bit harder, but not impossible with devices like 1000V power MOSFETs.
There is a nice circuit in the Art of Electronics that shows how to make a 
*regulated* high voltage supply. This would be premium for audio circuits.

I often saw a chain of about 10k/10uF resistors and caps. The most filtered
supply to the most sensitive tube (usually the input stage).
The DC-impedance will likely be higher than for a regulated low voltage
supply.
