I would recommend an 8" or 10" speaker for bedroom, or some kind of fully headphone rig. That's iIf "bedroom" level means something like "trying not to disturb others in the same non-sound insulated building".
If it's something you want to be able play with a band, then by all means start with a 12" speaker.
I hooked my gdec via USB to my computer and was able to tweak the tone parameters to exactly like my Twin reverb coming out of my JBL. a 10" speaker and 30 watts it gets plenty loud too. Through headphones or digital transfer (recording) is a little different tone than the speaker but it still can be tweaked that way too while running audacity. Fender did well modeling itself...the Vox , marshall, and the Jazz amp is great bedroom tone too. The only thing I have issue with is the tube OD is not just like tube OD but its like a pedal. The delay and modulation is great and 12 studio reverbs plus stereo effects. You can add a limiter/compressor too. you can do effects before or after and plenty of jam tracks to keep your chops up. Its a practice amp, a bedroom thing. I would go check one out or holler at brutusbuck, he has worked up some cool blackface patches. plus the price $300-400.
If you are gonna gig or be in a serious band, I would look into something like the above with tubes, at loud volumes tube amps are just the best IMO. but I can still get that Gdec to sound good loud, I just like the tube sound better..You can jam with friends and practice with this little thing if you have a pa and a cab.
