Axe-Fx users - what SS power amp?

and why?

Also, in a somewhat related question: I've noticed that many SS power amps have a "minimum impedance" but do not explicitly state that they are compatible with 16ohm loads. So am I correct in assuming that a SS power amp only has a "minimum load" that it shouldn't go under and everything else is cool?

Anything above the minimum load is fine, but will reduce power output. I use a Carvin DCM150 with the AxeFx (one channel only into a 16 ohm 4x12) ...sounds great...but really it's just what I had on hand and I've never tried anything else in the SS realm.

I've noticed a large amount of Axe-Fx users pairing it with the dcm150. apparently that amp is just a good sounding flat response amp, which is what I'm looking for.

I'm surprised nobody is using a Mesa 20/20 power amp.
Nobody uses tube power amps with the Axe-FX???

bump for more info!
I'm using the ART SLA-1 and an 8 ohm THD 2X12. So far, so good.

A lot of people use tube power amps, but a lot don't find them necessary because of the power amp sims in the Axe FX. A lot of people have moved from tube to SS reduce the weight of their racks since the power amp sims can replicate the tube feel pretty well.
