I have a Cube 15, for when headphones are required. I also have a little VHT Special 6 and a Fender Champ 600. The Cube has handled a few small pub gigs and is very easy to live with. The VHT is best to work on and the Champ sounds fine, cranked wide open. If I had to keep just one, it would probably be the VHT- but any one of the three would do the job of quiet domestic amp very well- and I recommend them all.
When the family is around I'm either unplugged (my BSB CV50 is very resonant and sounds great unplugged) or use my Pathfinder10. Late at night I use a Vox Amplug Classic Rock and headphones or just stay unplugged. When nobody's home I'll switch to the Vyper 30.
I use my Champion 40 -a lot- and enjoy switching to my Monotone 5w for some tweedish crunch now and then. Its a nice little amp.
As I live alone on an acre in a very rural type suburb I fire up the 120w twin now and then just to remember why my wife left.
mustang III, Zoom G1Xon through headphones, or one of those little "Vox" Amplug 2 AC30 headphone amps if I'm away from home..
Mustang 3 / early 60's Beltone AP 22
Mostly the Mustang, but
either amp for low volume playing
I use Roland Microcube!
I am lucky I guess. I am retired my wife is a RN and has 6 years yet are so before she can retire. She works days, and I live in the country. So I use a 50 watt Rivera Clubster Royale 112 for now.
Marshall JVM1 Combo. Longest honeymoon period I've ever had with an amp.
I use either this...

Or my Roland Cube 15x
Vox Mini5 Rhythm, such a great little amp
Pod X3 into computer or headphones
+ I've got two of those little 5w Nanos. I use the speaker cabs of my amps. Very quiet and surprisingly good sounds.
I would look at one of the little Blackstar amps.
ZT Lunchbox for Everything.
Using my Yamaha THR5 for about 4 years, still happy with this little thing.
I don't use anything: I'm unplugged almost all the time - except when fiddling with new equipment.
I also use a Special 6, running through a V30, as my main amp for both home practice and small gigs/jams. Into the low output on low power (3 watts) and using some mxr pedals and a Vox Stomplab multi-effects for dirt. Sometimes I use my Marshall VS100 if jamming with a friend or if I just want something different. It's not an amazing amp by any stretch, but the cleans are decent and the OD pretty much sounds the same at any volume.
Vox DA5. Great for testing out new pedals I get in the post before taking them to the practice room. Also great having fun with the ludicrous Hi-Gain channels, and does a sparkly great clean for songwriting and working out ideas. Plus the switchable wattage output means I can get louder if I need to, or keep it quiet later at night. Fantastic little amp.
Instrument line in through Scarlett 2i2, Garageband or Bias FX /headphones.
Have been pretty impressed with this rig.
I keep trying to find a practice amp that makes me want to replace my Vibro Champ XD, but love the darned thing.
