Fryette 2/50/2 or Engl 840/50 OR Mesa 20/20

Hey, I am looking to put together a rack setup for various reasons (yes i am experienced and am not just a bedroom player!). I am getting a JMP-1 preamp and an ADA MP-1 (will keep the one I prefer) and I need a decent power amp to pair it with..

I have done a lot of reading, listening to clips ect and have decided its between the Fryette 2/50/2, Engl 840/50 or Mesa 20/20 with deep mod.. which im tempted by because its cheaper and sounds good with the mod in the clips Ive herd. I really like a deep (although its not all about chugga chugga) open(ish) tone thats smooth on leads.

Any thoughts?

cheers, chris.

I've heard great things about the Fryette 2/50/2 and the 2/90/2 and if I were getting another power amp it would be one of those two.

Cheers man, I guess its the Engl E840/50 that im really curious about.. I can get it cheaper and when I tried a cornford MK50 i LOVED that and it used 5881's as does the ENGL.. just cant seem to find and reviews of it anywhere, only thing I found out is that some guy out children of bodom uses them (which means nothing to me really, even though i do like a bit of that)
