In fact the Golden is a super ""little"" base burner. Having a 9.5" fire pot is a different "Learning Curve" than when having larger ones. Sometimes the anth tend to jam at the bottom of the magazine, not very often but sometimes. Probably not when no liner in and having the full 12" fire pot?
The grate system is better on the Golden than on the Sunny cause the outer ring prevent any bridging of the ash and the center prismatic ones do the center cleaning. Needs less shaking movements than the Sunny. (I plan some modif on the Sunny grate on the next shut-down
Both are very efficient but the small golden is sitting in a 10 X 16 F, so the best one for a so small place.
On the other side, the Baltimore Heater heats the rest of the house, almost 2,000 Sqf. very easily. In fact if I got the Sunny before the Golden, I wouldn't have buy the small one. The lil' Baltimore as you said is a very serious heater and can do a nice job, just needs a special installation and mine was exactly made for it, the Sunny loves that faux-foyer much more than the Vigll.
