RE: To a point.

I think the video pentode was just an easy choice driven by output impedance, gain and the required plate dissipation rating required to get the first two. For gain, gm and load resistance rule, and with output impedance, the load is set...which drives plate dissipation requirements well beyond the usual signal pentodes.

Friend, I would not hurt thee for the world...but thou art standing where I am about to shoot.
