I think it really depends on how you use your amp. A guy who cranks everything to the max and then hammers the strings wide open all night with a 50 watt amp is likely to encounter problems once the BL heats up.
On the other hand, if you use your guitar volume all night to turn down for rhythm, turn up only for leads, etc, you might have a different experience. Of course the only way to know for sure is try it and keep your eyes open (and a hand on that thing to see if it's getting hot). Of course you have to buy one to do that test...
I use my BL stand alone with my EZG...no problems. But I don't run it wide open either. Had it cooking for several hours this past weekend for a practice session....EZG pre ~11, post ~2, BL on 4, pedals and gtr volume to taste.
