Boozhound Choke Tail Pair for HiFi

I was musing over the problem of largish resistors (and subsequent large voltage drop) of LTP circuits and the resulting large B+ requirements and wondered whether a choke might help with that problem. In searching the internet I came across this circuit by Boozhound.

Choke Tailed Pair

My thought was to replace the tail with a choke but he makes a good case for using only the cathode bias part with no tail at all.

What do you think of this circuit in general and what about using it in a hifi amplifier input stage (or preamplifier)?
