So I'm going to get a new amp and guitar in a couple of weeks and am not quite sure on the difference between the these amps:

The HT-5 is £100 cheaper but the money isn't really a problem. I want to have an amp that will last me a while. I don't play in a band or live so is the mini stack necessary? Does the mini stack have a better sound or is it just louder?
Thank you very much for replies

IMO get the head and find a nice 2x12 of a different brand. I didn't like the speakers provided. It WILL sound louder and more full with more speakers. I wouldn't get the mini-stack though.

Not sure whats up with all the external speaker hate.

seeing as you are in england and have access to orange at non rediculous prices, my advise would be to get the HT-5 head and an Orange 1x12" cab.
