Just word of warning and advice. A 5 Watt Valve amp is pretty loud
I have an HT5 and its not really that wife friendly volume wise.
Well don't scare him off Greg! Yes the 5 can make a racket but you can set the overdrive gain and volume so as to get a good sound at low levels. This "artificial" od sound may not be to everyones taste but it is better many say to modelling amps?
The reason the 5 is so "strong" BTW is because unlike almost all other 5W valve amps it uses a push pull, fixed biased class AB op stage so although the 5 produces only 5 clean watts (just!)if you drive the bits off it it kicks out almost 10watts. The push pull stage also accounts for the virtually audiophile hum level...i.e. there ain't any!
