    Plain and simple!!! It rocks and the versatility is awsome. I own the RT2 and two RM4s. Best purchase I have ever made. You will not be sorry!!! I would check the MTS series out.

    Think I'd prefer a dsl to a xxx. To my ears the marshall can do all the xxx does and more.

    I'm in the same bag, scouting out for a good affordable all tube amp. I think the triple xxx would be great but I heard that the cleans aren't the best.
    You might want to consider the Randall RM50, it's all tube and you can choose tube modules (not modeling but tube modules) that sound to your liking. They also have combo versions of it but the RM50 is very affordable leaving you enough cash to get an avatar cab.
    Another option could be the Marshall DSL50, heard nothing but good things about it.
    Maybe a Peavy 5150? But it's more of a metal amp.
    Soldano is worth looking into, and so is ENGL or H&K. Those have their own voice (that's what I've heard) and good cleans.
    Here's a link I got from so great forum member to compare amps:

    im currently looking at the crate vintage series. (close to buying bluesguys) just cause its a crate, dont not think aobut it. they are very affordable used, and new they arent that bad. ive played them ,and u can read the reviews. great clean tone. the older ones have the fameous crate spring reverb, 2 chanells w/ seperate eq, boosts, etc. 5,15,30,50,60 watt, 50/60 availible in 2X12. can be used to drive cabs. the distortion is by no means a high gain situation, but i think if u cranked it, if ur not doing deathmetal, u should be fine. a pedal could take care of that too. the cleans are near if not equal to fender, the distortion is almost that a a marshall, i read someone say its the mating of a marshall and a mesa, but i have never played a mesa. check them out. unique voice, good amps

    I love XXX's, and have some soundclips of Mark III's distortion and cleans, by our own Drucifer if you want em.

    You can't go wrong with Mesa Boogie however I would give serious consideration to the Peavey XXX especially if you want a unigue sound - we have one at the store I work at (no I'm not trying to sell you that one) and it sits next to a Marshall and I'm not sure which I like better - the XXX has a very fat distortion to it - can't quite describe it but I like it - it would definitely serve your purpose. Killer hard rock sounds.

    The idea of a Mark Series came up, and I would highly side with this amplifier as well. Now the Rectoverb has great cleans, but the Mark's simply cannot be outdone. But when talking about distortion, Rectos MELT the competition, however Marks can scream as well (just a different voice). Give both of those a try if you can. Either will make any man happy!
