    I play all mine thru a Boss Katana 100 combo. Great tones, ons of headroom, built-in FX, power to fill halls or quiet for bedroom.

    Les beat me to the Sonzera recommendation. It would be a good match for the styles you're talking about - the clean channel is very good, and the drive channel leans a bit towards the classic sounds, more than the Archon or MT15. You can definitely get a lot of bang for your buck in that range these days.

    The title of this thread is "My first PRS. I think I'm in love." and was started over 24 hours ago.

    Surely by now you must know that you're in love -- that it's more than just "think"?

    What do you say? :D

    I so want to do a “fixed it for you” but I won’t.

    Look at that I’ve finally discovered a filter! And I survive another day on the forum.

    I use an Ampeg Reverberocket. 50 watts, master volume, 2 channels and the best reverb I've ever heard built into an amp. Everything from bell-like cleans with tons of headroom to classic rock crunch. 3 12ax7's and 2 6L6's. Well built in America and much louder than you'd think from 50 watts. They are bargains on the used market.

    I’ve been playing my PRS through a Friedman JJ Jr. It’s all tube and has “essentially” 2 different foot-switchable channels. Those 2 channels however, have 5 different voices (2 dirty and 3 clean).

    It covers a super broad range of sounds; sounds great at bedroom level volumes; and the head version can even be safely played with no speaker load attached (there’s a combo version too).

    it’s right at the top of your budget but worth every penny in my opinion.
