You can switch the amp from 20 wattsonites down to to 5 wattsonites, but the reality in every amp I've used those power reduction features on, has been essentially the same as just staying in full watt mode and turning down the master 1 notch.I'm glad its a non-issue and you like the amp, sounds like you may need an attenuator, I've always been happy playing these amps and my 2204 volume 1 for home and an OD pedal for more gain. Enjoy it
I've looked at attenuators, and I have a hard time justifying $500-$600 just to be able to turn my volume down. Plus, I'm pretty sure using those does nothing useful for me when I consider the fact that the speakers need to get moving, so I think for me it'd be pointless. Sure, you'll be able to get the master up to the sweet spot and push the power tubes, but it still won't sound like a speaker filling out and moving some air.
