    engl e530 built in power amp vs ht-5

    Ok so this engl has me wondering, for at home running direct to a cab how would it compare to an ht-5? I mean the actual pre smokes the ht-5 obviously but just running with the on board power amp how would it compare?

      Don't expect much from a 1.5W power amp to a cab.

      actually 2 x 1,5W, and it is ridicolous loud for home use

      It's good to get others opinions if they think something sounds good sometimes gas gets the best of us and we make impulsive choices.

      As for the HT-5's meh I think the heads better than the combo and it's fine for heavy bluesy rock to early ozzy type tones horrid and fizzy for more modern tones I didnt even like mine boosted but they have no tube running in the pre....and the clean sucks something the e530 would slay it need it for live get a poweramp....

      Once again it's tempting me...
