I just ordered one today. Andertons (UK) have it in their sale. Hoping for something great - did hear one briefly in the flesh - and all reviews seem to love it. I'll post when it arrives.

One amp you might want to consider is the Marshall SL5. It has a 12" speaker and both 5W and 1W modes. It seems well thought of, if slightly pricey.

You aren't helping matters by 'proving' your point, only adding to the atmosphere. Anyway, I'm not helping either so I'll go back to being a reader.

There's the soon to be released Marshall sl-5, which switches down to 1W mode. Might not be the sound you're after but is possibly more flexible and close to what you want?
