Right, I'm planning my escape to University, and have come to the conclusion that I really won't have the space for my Valvetronix amp in my shoebox sized room. Well, I probably would, but this amp sounds a bit pathetic on high gain and loses alot of punch when played at student halls noise levels. I'm going to need something smaller, that can still pack a wallop.

So far I have looked at...

Orange Crush 10


Vox DA5 Classic


Roland Microcube R


Anyone got any suggestions?

What kind of music do you play?

I would say go for the microcube, only downside is that there is no EQ.

EDIT: You could always buy a Behringer Graphic EQ pedal, they are pretty good.

Microcube would be OK then, it is very versatile.

I'd take the DA5. The Cube 60 sounds fizzy enough with a 12" speaker, that tiny thing would make it even worse.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

DA5 any day.

+ you can change the wattage as well.

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

The Cube is £65, which considering it's only 2w seems quite hefty. What advantages does it have over the others?

Oh, those of you in the US, where can you buy these? I have family out there, and stuff like this is so much cheaper there, I could get them to send me one.

DA5, the cubes also pretty good. However my vote goes to the DA5.

I think a little valve combo like the Fender Champion 600 would be a great choice for you.

Considering your complaints about the Valvetronix, I can't imagine you'd be happy with any of the amps in your opening post.
