New guitar amp? Suggestions? Help?

So I'm looking to replace my ancient Peavey XXX that I don't really enjoy anymore, it's particularly grating that higher notes aren't as loud as low notes, and the speaker cable keeps popping out when we play live. I'm looking for a high gain amp that can do sparkling cleans and super hi gain sludge/hardcore/black metal.

Marshall JCM900, one of the guitar players uses these. Love their tone

VHT/Fryette Pittbull UltraLead, Aaron Turner has been using em since Panopticon days and still does with Sumac. Saw Downfall of Gaia uses em too, also the other guitar player in Amenra I think used to use one. only downside to this amp is it only has 2 channels
We Are the Romans

Mesa Triple Rectifier, classic amp used by many guitar players including Dave Knudson. Not sure I'f I really want one but worth mentioning, I want something more unique, these are kinda sterile
Jane Doe

Orange Rockerverb 100, Kurt uses these. Alot of artist swear by Orange including Dead Meadow, and my band definitely has a shoegaze influence

this is my band, i used the Peavey XXX on this album.

the other choice I was thinking about is an Engl Powerball but I'm afraid it might end up sounding too polished like swedish melo-death, although it does have 4 channels and gain for days
