I am a recent ower of a Marshall Origin 20, which I got in July. I've really enjoyed the amp until I plugged in last night and got out absolutely no sound out of it. I couldn't figure out why, as nothing as happened to it and it worked fine two days ago. I took it apart to do some trouble shooting and found that when I have all the knobs max'd and output on 20 watts, I can hear a whisper of my guitar signal (nicely saturated, presumably by the preamp tubes) through the speaker. This sound is affected by all of the knobs. However, if I plug my guitar directly into the return of the effects loop, and activate the effects loop I get no sound whatsoever; no guitar, no hum, nothing. Because of this, I'm sure my speaker is not the problem. These things led me to think it was a power amp section issue, so I went down and purchased a new set of matched EL34's, threw them in there, and nothing changed. I'd really like to know if there's anything I can do to fix this, because this amp is not even a year old and I should not be having these kinds of problems with completely normal bedroom use.
Hi all. I have a Code 25 which sounds great through headphones using the cab emulation. Without headphones I'm struggling to find a cab that doesn't sound really boxy. If I switch the cab off, it becomes a fuzzy mess and is unusable. Am I missing something or is that just how it is?
Thanks in advance!
how to upload a preset from MyGateway to the Amp ?
... not to the Gateway library because this will then not be possible to control via footswitch.
there are also patches under marshallcode.tools from where a direct upload to the Amp is possible via USB.
however, not ideal if this would have to be done twice separately (?)
the library overview in MyGateway is ideal but I can´t find a way how to move presets from MyGateway onto the Amp.
Many thanks in advance for your help
-> meanwhile figured it out: drag & drop to Gateway Library, then in the App under the individual Preset, select both Amp + Library, press save.
I have a Marshall Code 50 running MCU version 1.44 and Gateway (Android version 1.5.5) on a Samsung Galaxy S9+ running the latest OS. I can bluetooth pair to the amp and play music, but can not connect to the amp to change my presets from the library. I have reloaded the latest firmware on the amp, deleted and reinstalled the Gateway app, paired and unpaired several times. Nothing seems to work. I even grabbed my old Galaxy S7 Edge phone and that Gateway app on it does the same thing. Does my amp need to be serviced for Bluetooth connectivity?
hi, i got the marshall code 25, it stopped working when i connected it to my laptop right after i updated the firmware, i think there was a problem with the usb cable, now the amp doesn't respond to anything, and no sount comming out of it, i tried to factory reset stiil no responce, when i turn it on, i get on the screen marshall, then B0.6 , M0.0 , D1.1 , then CHK USB, now i was wondering if there is anything i can do to get it to work again just in case if the new usb wont work, please help
I just unpacked my two brand new Stanmore 2 (Voice) speakers.
I am using an IPhone XS max on IOS 13.6
I successfully connected them to Google Home and can use this app to play music.
I successfully connected them as generic Bluetooth devices and can use them individually for Bluetooth audio.
BUT I cannot get Marshall's own IPS apps to recognise them!
Marshall "Bluetooth" doesn't recognise their existence when they are switched as Bluetooth input, neither does Marshall "Multi Room" when they are switched as WiFi input.
So Marshall's own apps are a FAIL
Apparently I need the app to be able to "Couple" them as a stereo pair, which was the reason I purchased two speakers!
Anyone else having a similar problem?
I did notice on the Apple app store a comment from a downloader who had experienced the exact same problem, so clearly this is a known issue for Marshall.
I have reported this to Marshall support but I have no experience of them so I don't know how responsive they are?
i experiance a lot of crackle at some presets whitch is extremly anoiying !
it seems to disapear when poweramps turned off
i read alot of CODE users experiance the same and if its a software bug can we expect a software update soon?
Where can I find a manual for the DSL40CR amp? It looks like everything here is for the CODE amps. The print on the "manual" (a single sheet) that came with the amp is so small it's unreadable even with a magnifying glass.
I ask to the Marshall team the following questions :
Why is the sound of music through Bluetooth so bad ?
Whay can't we use command of the code 50 to correct : Bass, Middle, Treeble ?
It is really a pity that the difference of quality is huge between the soung of guitare and music !!
I've got an apple music subscription, and my alexa app has been linked to it. Apple music works fine with echo devices, but just not on this speaker.
The new Stockwell 2 seems to come with an auto-standby mode, meaning it shuts off after between 5 min and 20 min (seems to be different from a phone versus a laptop?) even if the connection via bluetooth or jack-in is stable. Although the sound is nice for the size, the speaker is barely useful in settings where sound is not played all the time.
Team Marshall, can you please provide an option to define a custom time (let's say 2h) or completely disable the auto-standby mode either by a Firmware update ob by integrating the Stockwell 2 into the Marshall app? Thanks.
I dont know why you removed the feature of turning off the standby mode. It was a terrible decision. We need smart devices and not dumb ones. You really expect me to press a button on the speaker every time I use it after 20 minutes? Please update the app and firmware so we can enable turning off this stupid feature.
Hello, is it possible to check the battery level on osX for Monitor II?
Does anyone know if the non-Marshall pre-amps ('50s British, OD American, CR American, and CL American) on the Code are modeled after specific amps? I'm currently thinking '50s British is probably based off of the Vox AC30, OD American off of a Mesa/Boogie, and either CR American or CL American would be based off of a Fender, though I'm not sure what the other would be. Let me know if you know for sure what they are. Thank you!
In a new firmware We need more efects: uni-vibe indispensable,fuzz, efects modulations ,delays,reverb out in stereo please.
Thank you team Marshall
I know GATEWAY is available for iOS. How is iPadOS?
Does it work on iPadOS without problem?
You need to get someone to fix the Bluetooth capabilities with this product line, like, yesterday. I updated the firmware yesterday, which was extremely difficult to do in the first place, uninstalled / reinstalled the Gateway app today, and still cannot connect to the amp except via my phone's native Bluetooth options to use it as a speaker. I am running ios 13.3.1.
I've scoured your web site, I've watched your videos, I've been all over Google and Youtube, and I am nowhere. In addition, I'm legitimately concerned by other reviews that the amp is simply not going to sound as good given I've updated the firmware. Will post again if that's the case.
I will see if I can push new presets to the amp via a hard connection to my PC, but you need to do serious damage control on this product line considering your leading selling point has proven to not work as intended, if at all.
For all you that have issues connecting amp with Gateway app (even though it's connected to your phone already) clear out all of your old bluetooth pairings (headphones, portable speakers, etc..). That worked for me after screwing around for 30 min.
I've been using the Marhsall Monitor bluetooth headphones for about a year and I haven't had any issues using these in rain or during really sweaty sessions at the gym. I'm now looking to upgrade to the Marshall Monitor A.N.C. II. And from the promotion video posted by marshall(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMy3OXCXZvk) I see at the 1:17 mark that(what I assume is) the microphones for A.N.C. will be located on the top of the headset.
Will this pose a higher risk for water damage on this headset modell?
See screenshot from promotion video:
Thanks for any type of response.
