    Default Hot workhorse

    5500 here has worked fine over 10 years. Price sounds decent.
    5500 will heat a 250 sq/ft room so it needs good ventilation.
    Weakness to me is somewhat loose low end.
    Strength is very liquid grain free top.
    The round push-in power button has always been a little spongy.
    Not bridgeable BTW.
