I was looking for a high-powered combo, and a friend offered me his Eden Metro. It's the older version, 8 ohms internally, so it's about 240 watts by itself. Used it at an audition last nite, and loved it. I also tried it with a Carvin 2x10 I have, and the sound was just huge. Of course that would have given me about 3 ohms speaker impedance, so there was plenty of power on tap as well. This is my first "high end" amp, and I'm totally diggin' it. It does deep and thumpy very nicely, and if you want ear-splitting nails-on-a-chalkboard treble, you can get that too, though the highs from this combo are generally pretty sweet. Fortunately, the previous owner already blew the speakers and got new ones from Eden, so I should be OK on that score.
