It seems many people here want a fully cranked amp tome at "bedroom levels". Is this a realistic expectation?
I don't subscribe to this "amp must be X wattage" thing because people have so wildly different preferences. Best home tube amp I have ever had is my Bogner and it's a beefy 45W. It's power scalable down to 15W but sounds just best to me at 45W with the master volume turned down a bit more. While that extra power is not needed for volume, it does have an effect on the feel and sound.I'm going to guess that most of us here are bedroom or at home players only. If my guess is correct then a lot of "the best" amps just aren't. A practical at home amp doesn't need to be more than 10-15 watts. I'm in a gigging band so I can justify my 50w Marshall, but I don't play it at home. I have a Deluxe for my bedroom amp and it's still too loud.
Yes. My 100W amps sound amazing through a PS2 at reasonable volumes.It seems many people here want a fully cranked amp tome at "bedroom levels". Is this a realistic expectation?
