I'm thinking of selling my Egnater Vengeance when I get it fixed this weekend, and buying one of the amps mentioned in the title. What are your opinions on them, I know a lot about the JVM 210/410 but the SLX is a bit obscure and there isn't much info on it. The Stiletto I know Leon and Noodles have so your opinions on that amp for a Marshall type tone would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Personally, I don't think a Stiletto sounds like a Marshall; it's obviously inspired one, but still very much a Mesa sound. Having said that, I don't like the other two amps you named. I've owned an SL-X, and would rather have a JCM800 with an OD-1 out front. I've only played a JVM in the store, but nothing made me want to own it; channels one and two are the only ones I found usable, and once again, JCM800 and OD-1 sound better. Not on your list, but I really loved the Splawn-modded Marshall Mk II I played; it had the jumper mod and pull out gain knob that activated an additional gain stage.
If you grab a Stiletto, make sure it is a series 2 (has a II by the input jack). The original was flubby, gain starved, and uninspiring.
