I wouldn't worry too much about wattage at bedroom volumes, especially when you're looking for high gain.

It's best to keep in mind that many low wattage amps are basically designed to be run at...

My first choice would be the Neunaber Echelon. It's got tap, it's simple to use (although it's got a USB plug so it's fully customizable) and the sound blows pretty much every other echo I've played...

Too much gain. Way way too much gain. If turning the gain down sounds bad then you're either using the wrong amp model or it's simply a technique issue. Personally I suspect the latter.

I bought and returned 3 Classic 30s. They were all tube eating monsters. Something to do with the fact that they're so small. The tubes just vibrate to death.

I really agree with everything said here. I tend to notice that neither the cleans nor the high gain stuff sits very well in a mix. Most of the times when I see bands using Orange amps I've noticed...

I'd set mine up exactly as 2Crosser mentioned. That said, both the POG and Phaser will sound good in front of the amp. It's really a matter of preference so make sure you try both ways.

Could be anything from a bad tube, to a bad speaker cable to a blown speaker. Try a different speaker cable. Test the amp with a different cab and the cab with a different amp.
