Opinions on 6P3S for Hi-Fi ?

Any opinions about the sound and reliability of these tubes when they're used as 6L6 replacements? I'm referring to the 6P3S, not the 6P3S-E. The 6P3S is only rated for about 19W and can only be used to replace a tube in the 6L6 category (not higher dissipation tubes like the 6L6GC, 6L6WGT, or 5881). I'm rebuilding a few amps that use 18-19W tubes, and the 6P3S is still pretty cheap on eBay. I'm thinking this might be a good time to buy a small quantity, but only if they're worthwhile.
