Default What's the best value acoustic amp on the market?

I'm thinking of getting an amp for my office and possibly to do local gigs with. My acoustics have electronics in them and I'd like to record and play over top of myself with a looper. So what's the best value acoustic amp these days?

Not really an acoustic amp, but a Boss AC33 is small and compact, has a basic looper built in, and can even run on batteries - not bad for a small office, or even a small gig -

Looking at the options, still not sure what to go for yet.

I should also mention I have a Taylor with on board electronics. Any amps that work well with Taylors would be appreciated.

I have a Fender Champion 20 that is a lot of bang for the buck.
Paid $95 new.

In my opinion, a preowned Ultrasound is the best value. They sound great are are very inexpensive on the used market.

I'm having fun with the Roland AC33 with the looper. I like the size, weight, and battery operation. Nice sound from my Taylor electronics.
