Default Current Mirrors in a balanced preamp

Hi all,
I am collecting the parts for a balanced transformer coupled preamplifier ala the Amnity. I was thinking of using simple bypassed current mirrors in the cathodes for ensuring high compliance current balance within the output transformer.
What are peoples opinions on the potential sonic penalties of such a strategy.
