I’ve been curious about these for a while. This thread got me to plug into a couple today at my GC. The first was the 20C. I grabbed a Tele off the wall. This amp does “clean” real nice. I kept the master on 3. The gain all the way up and then boosted it with the pull knob. I played with the presence and tilt. Both work quite well. Digging in on the guitar, it had the nice edge of break up going. It would be perfect for me at home. I used the power scaling switch and didn’t hear any difference in volume. However, the 20watt sounded a bit fuller. Next I ventured into the Platinum room. They had the Origin 20 head hooked up to a half stack Marshall with 4 Speakers. That set up was completely different than the combo. Same settings and it was noticeably louder and cleaner. But still had some grit. Sounded good. Just not my cup of tea. Maybe a single 12” cab or a 2x12 would have be better for me. For home use and jamming with friends, I would get the combo. I guess you can always get a cabinet to plug into if you want louder.
