Hahaha! I was trying to be informative but I may have been a bit snarky here lol... buy what makes you happy! There's a lot of people on here I'm sure can chime in and say that's a killer combo. I was honestly just trying to (in my snarky way) make sure you weren't being steered away from buying something you want because of this old wive's tale that 'Amp A' won't sound good unless it's at a 6, or you can't use it as a bedroom amp, or some such crap. Does my Budda SD80 sound better when it's cranked? Yeah, of course, because it literally makes my balls rattle and I pee a little bit when it's that loud. But it still sounds the same at a 0.5, just without the nut-punch lol. Two things I will add: With respect to the clean channel... volume does matter. If you are looking to get breakup, so your clean channel is overdriving slightly or at least really hot (say for SRV type tones), then you either need less wattage or your preamp volume higher (~7 depending on amp). And with some amps the master volume, with the pre volume that high, are still going to be quite loud. Definitely play with the EQ, because you will have to compensate as certain frequencies are more prevalent at louder volumes, so you will prob have to add back in some bass and treble that is lost at low volumes.
