Thanks in advance
Amps with tube power sections, yeah, as far as I know, you don't want to run those without a load. Tube pre, different story. You should be fine running the Max without a cab connected and, I think, solid state amps in general, with a very few exceptions.
I had a Max 12.0 for awhile and am pretty sure I used it as a pre and/or practiced with headphones a couple of times. Have not run into any issues doing similar with any of the other solid state heads I've owned.
