I'm thinking of buying a Blackstar HT-5 this month but the one I'm looking at is only the head, no cab and I can't find any Blackstar cabs. I've checked eBay and the websites of my local guitar shops and I haven't found anything.
So my questions are:
1) Can I hook the HT-5 up to my amp and just use the speaker until I get a cab?
2)What cab should I buy if I can't get a Blackstar one?
Main Gear:

ESP Eclipse CTM I
Dean 'Shards' Razorback
Chapman Guitars ML-1
Ibanez AEL40SE Acoustic
Blackstar HT-5 Mini Stack
EHX Metal Muff
EHX Small Clone
Look at the stack version instead?

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo
