I remember an amplifier which uses the #46 as driver and transformer coupled to push pull #46, forget where its source, but it was a neat-looking amp.
The setup you described is on the data sheet I linked. I intend to construct an "El Cheapo" variant with Tubelab's PowerDrive on the #46 grids.
What will happen if we subtitute plate resistor with a gyrator on ccs-tailed LTP? I think it would sounds good(maybe?).
I've been doing this for a while with Wavebourn's SVCS circuit. It works and sounds very good. Wb's circuit itself is the best sounding SS Plate load I've heard to date, and on the plate of a driver makes adjustment of direct coupled configs easy - especially useful in experimental circuits.
I've also been using the idea in a phono stage for the past couple of months and it has been working quite well. The device used in the cathode CCS does have a considerable effect on the sound - subtle maybe, but far reaching in terms of how you end up listening to the music.
