OP: Play it, listen to your ears and make your own decisions. Ignore people who casually disregard the experience of others.
Just because you prefer a Delux does not mean every one has to! This Sweet spot nonsense is just that because I guarantee NO ONE out on a dance floor is gonna say gee listen to that amps sweet spot.
Does not matter if your pushing a small amp or have a pedal in front of a large one it both sounds good enough that the normal person cannot tell the difference.
