To amp or not to amp?

    I am getting back into bass, and as a hobby player with a small house and a newborn baby, should I consider just getting a multi-effect unit (like the new Alesis ones) that has a headphone out instead of getting a bass amp?

    I have a feeling I already know your answer, but give it to me anyways.

    For the record, I know it's sorta big, but the amp I was considering was the new Ashdown Five Fifteen Combo.
