7B4 Loktal for gain ?

Quite an interesting valve here, on Thomas Mayer's site :

Low current, high gain, like an ECC83, but one section per valve.
Plate ( anode ) is cylindrical though - might have advantages in distortion , like the very good-sounding 6P5 and 76.
I can imagine using this after an RIAA section in a phono, followed by a CF buffer for the output.
