What to do with TI 3583JM opamps?

After looking into these further, I see several options.

1 Use these to drive power mosfets as followers.

2 Use a tube amp output transformer with them.

3 Build some electrostats or some sort of large custom piezo transducer and drive them directly.

These things are expensive little toys I get to play with. TI lists them as US$208.50 each in quantities of 1000! So, I would like to do something interesting with them.

Oh yeah, I am likely to use them (somehow) to drive my mid-high frequency horns. 500-800 hertz on up. But I am open to options.

Anyone have configuration ideas I missed?
Has anyone played with these before?
Any votes on which way I should go?
