Carvin vs Engl

I'm about to invest in a used tube combo & would really appreciate some input.
I've narrowed my choice down to 2, An Engl screamer or a Carvin Legacy vl212 mk1. Both will cost around the same, I really like the screamer & have tried one out but have no experience using a Carvin & know nothing about how they perform & how reliable they are. Really like the sounds I've heard on youtube though.
I use a fernandes retrorocket elite & play mostly classic rock, but want access to high gain sounds for solos, both these amps do good clean & high gain, really like the channel switching options on the engl but the carvin has the advantage of more wattage and an extra speaker. Opinions more than welcome!
