Recently I bought Marshall CODE 25 and it's a great amp but I have one little problem with it.
There is a problem with MASTER potentiometer. I noticed that when I set it between 0-0.99 it is very very quiet but when I set it about 1.0 it becomes very loud. And in the effect it is very hard to play at "bedroom" volume levels. I must say that I'm disappointed - I had Yamaha THR 10 previously and it could play very well at every volume and it could play very quiet.
So to sum it up, is this some general issue with all CODE amps or something is broken in mine? Maybe master potentiometer needs repair?
As we have explained on other threads, The Master Volume is not a part of the Board to be updated via Firmware, you will need to adjust each presets Volume to get the best sound from the amp.
I've solved my problem with this Marshall by selling it ;)
I have the same problem, it’s either too soft or if you increase even by a bit it just becomes too loud for bedroom playing. There needs to be a permanent fix either through firmware update or through recall, not a work around.
I’ve read similar posts and it seems that the RnD have been working on this since around April last year. Almost a year now for volume issue?? Really? Marshall is a great brand, it’s your reputation at risk. I’m pretty sure they have capable engineers (or do they?). The longer it takes Marshall to resolve this issues, the more of these type of posts will surface, the more negative impact to Marshall’s reputation. So Marshall.. when are we going to get a permanent fix for this? :-)
All the CODE amps has this issue. As a solution you can set the volume of the preset to about 2-3 and the master-volume will work more smoothly, but the level of the signal via USB will be less.
This has been a problem since day one with this amp, if only Marshall tech team could/ would sort out this issue it would transform this amp into a more manageable piece of equipment for us home users.. I have tried my best to love this amp, but 2 years down the line I'm still struggling.
Come on Marshall please sort this and reinstall the faith your customers have shown we all are feeling a little let down. If as stated on this thread ( master volume) at least keep us updated on the possible fix date.
