Default E80L pentode mode as driver?

Has anybody used the E80L as a (single stage) driver?

I bough a handful some time ago but never got around to trying it.

Looks like it would work pretty well, ala D3a...

Not much to add but I'ld be interested to hear about the results if you decide to test them further. I've got a few of those and their specs would make them suitable for a project. IIRC d3a was one of the best distortion-wise in your test.
