I have been happy with the Sophia Electric EL45. Economical (+/- $600) used, and sweet sounding for Vocals, Jazz and acoustic. Puts out about 40 watts, push/pull. The one annoying fact is they label all of their amps SET which stand for Sophia Electric Technology. Has nothing to do with Single Ended Triode. It is a great starter amp, and has suited me well until I can find a modded Shanling to match my Shanling SACD.
