I believe comparing other brands is allowed so here goes... Getting closer to a new amp day... Still up in the air... Archon 100 Mark V Mark V:25 1 1x12 + 1 1x12 slant(mesa for the slant could be PRS for the non-slant) 2 1x12 prs with one on a stand to angle it 1 2x12 vertical slant(mesa) 1 2x12 horizontal(prs or mesa) 1 4x12 slant or no(prs or mesa) Archon or Mark V would require a cab clone or some other such device to be able to plug headphones in for silent play or for direct recording so little extra cost there. The MarkV:25 has this already. Volume will be house volume most of the time. I will no longer be stuck in the bedroom and will have a large office and/or basement to set up in. Music will range from black sabbath, green day/nirvana, jack white, up through modern hard rock. Don't forsee any sort of modern metal being played. A good clean channel would be a bonus though I don't play a ton of clean stuff. As of right now I have no where to go to compare them... One dealer has a couple of the 25's but that's it. Once we move I might be able to get to chicago or even Indiana to try them out but not positive yet if I will be able to get away. What combo would you recommend of equipment? Open to other suggestions as well.
