Hi, 

I've just recently bought the Acton II to have as a speaker in our bathroom. Looks great and sound good enough. So far I'm satisfied. 
However, the speaker is driving me mad. Here's why. 
My girlfriend and I both use the speaker whenever we're spending time in the bathroom, so both our phones have been connected to the speaker at some point. 
But, if I'm playing music from my iPhone to the speaker and my girlfriend is in another room, let's say, watching YouTube on her iPhone things get wierd. If she adjusts the volume on here phone it also messes with my music in the bathroom. 

Another example:

Playing music from phone 1 to Acton II. then, Adjusting the volume by using the buttons on the side of iPhone 1 also adjusts the main volume of phone 2. Even though Phone 2 isn't in use. It just messes with the volume of it. 

This is suuuuuper annoying. Since the app is no where near of being good, I don't know how this can be solved. If there's no good solution I'm gonna have to sell the speaker and buy a brand that really knows how to make speakers for this purpose. 

Does anyone know if this can be fixed..??

thanks / Mathias

Hello,

I took delivery of a Code50 last Friday, and already I have noticed a major flaw. I have updated the firmware, and it didn't solve the problem.

1. On many of the presets, there is what sounds to me like a slight buzz or a distorted sound as the chord is being held after about 4 or maybe 5 seconds. Obviously, this isn't going to be good when recording.

For example, I have been using many of the clean sounds, such as, American Clean (preset 32). This is a prime example of the unwanted buzz as the chord fades (only 4 or 5 seconds). There are so many more presets that also have this problem.

The issue occurs through both the Code50 built-in speaker and my Beyer Dynamic DT100 headphones. Using headphones proves that it is not the internal speaker at fault.

I can email a sound byte if you need one.

The last thing I want to do is re-box the amp and return it for a replacement only to have the same issue happen with the next unit. So, please can you let me know if this is a widely known fault because, if it is, I will unfortunately have to send it back for a full refund.

2. A second issue worth noting here is that the clean sounds are not very loud. When wearing headphones, I have to increase both volumes to 10, but I can still hear the strumming of the actual guitar with my plectrum coming through the headphones. The volume on the clean sounds are too weak and definitely not loud enough when also playing through the Code50 speaker, not just the headphones. Conversely, the distorted rock sounds are really loud when the volume is set to a low level, but the clean sounds couldn't be more opposite.

It will be a shame if I return the unit because I love the app and the ability to back up presets and also search for new ones.

Many thanks

Quite a few people on various forums are concerned about the emulated out of our DSL20H and DSLCR amps. It seems that there is a set level for the emulated line out and headphones which can only be adjusted with either the guitar volume knob of gain channel knob. The channel volume does nothing to the line out/headphones only to the speaker output.

Is this normal behaviour? Where the gain knobs are the only controls on the amp that increases the loudness of headphone/line out.

Hallo,

just received my DSL1HR now, and test it's functionality without an external cabinet (ordered but not arrived yet), so tested only with my headphones AKG K240 MKII. I noted that the volume is very low even with the volume knob at maximum level and switching the power 1W-0.1W I don't feel any difference, in both channel !

seems that only 0.1W is allowed when external speaker is disconnected. Is it broken or is it normal ? awaiting for a kind urgent fast responce please.

thanks

cheers

Hey,

Just got a Marshall Stanmore, and when listening to calmer songs, I can hear a significant amount of distortion. Like a fuzzy overdrive.
Overall, the speaker sounds great, especially on higher volume, but I still can't get over the annoying distortion. Really low-key piano songs are virtually unbearable to listen to. 

Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a Bluesbreaker reissue which I absloutley love.

Of course it doesnt have a master volume.

Has anyone any experience, good or bad of putting an attenuator before the speakers?

I want to keep the tone but redue the volume!

How  far can you turn this up wihtout blowing it up!? Code 50

Ive got a main  Heavy Metal Tone I use all the time. The volume in the preset is set to  1.8. I have it that low so it doesnt blow my Clean sound away when I click between the two. 

I was playing with a drummer the other day and I had the master volume up to maybe close to half and I was worried I was going to blow the speaker.

So How  far up is safe?

 

Oh Im using a Code 50.
