    Anyone have experience with any or all of these combos?

    I am looking to get one of these three amps as my first practice amp. I am using a small 5w tube guitar amp with 8" speaker right now, and it does not provide very fulfilling aural experience (but that may also be caused by my two whole days of experience playing the instrument). The three things i am most interested in are:

    1) decent tone at bedroom level volume for home practice (maybe with headphone?)
    2) loud enough for garage/basement jamming - but not gigging
    3) small and very portable - i live in an apartment with very limited space and a long a** walk from door to car.

    thanks in advance for your help
