Hi Herwig, All!

In audio service yes, but in rf service where the plate load is a
tuned circuit, the flywheel effect of the tuned circuit makes up the
other half of the cycle.  There is no law against building push-pull
rf amps, they appeal to the sense of symmetry and there is inherent
cancellation of even harmonics, also they tend to give better
performance at the high frequency end of a valve's working range, but
other than that, single-ended class B is fine for linear rf service.
