So I was trying out a spankin' new Carr Mini Mercury 10incher last week, and checking out all the wattage settings from 1/10 of a watt to 8 watts, I came to a realization - my perfect bedroom amp wattage is only a half a watt for a tube amp. 8 watts was waaaay too loud, 1/10 sounded like a muted buzzy hornet, but 1/2 was just right - really sounded like all the dynamics and clarity and crunchy OD was properly represented at speaking voice levels. My current amps are 5W, 15W and 18W. The 5W doesn't have a speaker out jack and seriously blows windows out here. The 15W is hobbled by an attenuator, and the 18W lives by its master volume. Could the answer really be a 1/2 Watt tube amp that you can play amongst its entire range? Depressing to consider to my personal ego, but encouraging that folks are even making such amps to cater to such deflated egos.
