    550x

    IMHO the sm-500 is much better, same power (mono), but capable of running stereo, much more flexible EQ.

    I'll second Tightanic. The SM series have a much more versatile EQ. This can be a good or bad thing depending on how you like to play with sliders and knobs.
    The possibilities for hooking cabs is a definite plus.
    Some people claim that they can get pretty hot but I haven't experienced that at all after running it hard for about 3 to 4 hours.
    Of course, if you can get your hands on a SM400S...then we're talking.
