I am located in South Africa and have just purchased a Marshall Stanmore Pitch Black Bluetooth Speaker yesterday from the Apple iStore online site which should be delivered in the next 3-5 working days. Being a high-end brand with reputable history and having read several good reviews on this product prior to my purchase, I did not verify if there are any concerns raised about this product. Last night however I searched the internet for any customer complaints on this product and was shocked to find many complaints/problems registered regarding Bluetooth becoming unusable and the unit going dead (not powering-up at all) within the first 12 months of purchase. The aforementioned makes me hugely concerned about reliability and quality of this product to the extent that I am considering to cancel my purchase. I know that world-wide there must have been thousands of these units sold since its launch making the listed problems possibly a small percentage. What concerns me is the consistency of the registered/reported problems and that there might be many more of similar nature which have not been listed by unhappy customers.
Can I please ask you to be honest and confirm if there are any inherent problems with this specific product? I would rather refrain from purchasing a Marshall branded product than to later joint the seemingly huge number of unsatisfied customers when it comes to this specific product. I rely on your integrity to be honest with me in urgently replying to my above question to enable cancellation of my purchase.
To use my 8-ohm cab with my DSL 40C, do I need to unplug the dedicated 16-ohm plug from the back of my amp? Thanks
Hello, I purchased the DSL40C and MX212 Cabinet. I know the Speaker in the combo is 16-ohms. I also know the speakers in the MX212 are wired for 8-ohms. I know if I use the cabinet, I can't use the speaker in the combo together. My question is, has anybody ever put an 8-ohm speaker in the combo? I am thinking that two 8-ohm loads would give me a 3x12 config for extra beef! Would this work, and would the amp still sound just as good if I used it alone (to take to jam sessions) on the 8-ohm output? Thanks
Hi there Marshall team,
I was wondering if you could help me with a problem that I am having between my Code 25 amplifier and the Gateway app. I am able to pair my android device and the amp via Bluetooth just fine but once I am in the Gateway app it doesn't detect my amp at all, even when I press "scan for amp" it just says no amp detected.
I think I should add that I have been able to connect it to my apple device without any problem at all.
It would be highly appreciated if you got back to me.
Hey guys, what would be the best set up for using a loop pedal with a code 50? Is it possible?
OR is there a way to start/stop recording with the looper preset via the footpedal?
Thanks in advance ;)
Dear Marshall Applification cop. ,
I have been waiting to get a CODE 25, and today i noticed my phone was not compatible with the app. I use my laptop for every thing and wondered if the app was on pc. I notice that the application is only for smartphone devices. Is there a Marshall gate way app for the pc, and if not is one coming out?
Whenever I turn my amp on it just buzzes, and doesn’t pick up the guitar at all. It’s not the guitar because it still does it unplugged from both guitars I tried. Tried different outlets too. Can anyone help?
Is this the serial number? I believe the last two digits are the manufacturing date? Can you give some details about this amp based on the serial number. I bought it without a box. I want to register it, I need the exact amp model. eg. "dsl40c -u"
I am using Garageband 11 on a macbook 10.7.5. Garageband shows code as audio in and out but no sound goes in or out of Garageband. I also have Audacity with the same problem? I have updated firmware with Windows only? app.
Just bought a Code 50...enjoying it but little surprised not to find the USB cable you need to connect the amp to your computer in the box, but hey ho. What type of cable do I need and where can I buy one?
Like apparently everyone else, my Code 25 "forgets" to turn on Bluetooth, and I have to restart the pairing process all over again, everytime I want to play. I have to delete the pairing from my phone, turn on bluetooth pairing on the amp, and rediscover the amp. EVERY FREAKING TIME. Where's that update to the firmware?
Is there any reason why the PEDL 91016 footswitch is only available at one location and that location is in the UK? Is the footswitch available anywhere in the U.S. or will it be?
I just bought the Marshall Code25 and tried to update the Firmware via USB.
I have launched the firmware update from the Chrome Navigator and from Windows firmware application. After update performed, Code25 remains to version 1.11 and firmware indicates my CODE firmware is up to date.
I have notice during the update than first, the version 1.41 is installed (MCU firmware 1.41) and just after a second update is launched installing the version 1.11 (DSP firmware 1.11)
Is it the regular behavior ?
After the update I still have troubles on bluethooth pairing, even if I read this problem should be solved by the update.
Thanks for your help
Hi, my code 50 have this problem, connect and pair with bluetooth but dosen´t connect at gateway
When Marshal solved this problem ?
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?
Hi, everyone! Just a quick question. I have a Marshall DSL40c with a Celestion 70/80 factory installed speaker, rated at 16ohms. It's a little harsh sounding for me, so I wanted to switch to a Celestion Creamback, which I ordered through my local distributor, but instead of a 16ohm speaker, they brought an 8ohm speaker. My amp has 2x8ohm plugs and a 1x16ohm. What would happen if I installed the 8ohm speaker and used one of the 8 ohm outputs? Would this damage the amp? Would affect the tone (I'm looking for something more classic hard rock, which I understand is the Creamback's specialty)? Thanks for your help!
Just a warning (possibly more a bit of advice maybe):
I noticed over the weekend that sometimes (not always) when retrieving a patch from a CODE amp. the Marshall CODE PC Editor does not always get it right. Sometimes it will load perfectly and other times it's almost as if it's retrieved some, not all, of the settings for the patch. I only noticed this after retrieiving some presets, making a change or two, and then overwriting on the amp. with the incorrect settings and I thought I was going bonkers because I checked and re-checked what I was doing but whenever I saved on the amp. sometimes one or two of the parameters were not as I set them. It seems to do the same when loading a saved patch from disk too. Wasted hours!!!
Anyway: the easy workaround really is to just keep clicking on the retrieve button until there are no more changes to any of the parameters of the preset being shown on the screen (normally only need to do it twice but three is a lucky number). Make your changes then save back to the amp. (I've resorted to doing this three times too just for safety sake). And when loading from disk: get into the habit of doing it three times too!!!
I'll try get their support to have a look at it (although things seem every so quiet over there).
I mention the above because even although we all know the this is not a Marshall Amplication PLC product and is not supported by them: it is indeed punted on these forums quite widely (by myself too).
I got a doubt on well interpretating the manual where it states:
WARNING: When using the DSL1HR head
for ‘silent’ practice or DI recording ALWAYS
disconnect the speaker cabinet from the
amplifier’s rear panel before switching on.
NEVER unplug the speaker cable from the
speaker cabinet while it is still connected
to the amplifier rear panel. This may stress
the amplifier’s power-stage and in extreme
cases may lead to valve and/or transformer
can someone confirm what I understand: if I want to play using an headphone for silent practice (connecting my headphone to emulated line Out), I shall prior disconnect the external speaker from the rear of the amplifier (shouted off), (and never from the rear of the speaker cabinet). So I can Play the amplifier using headphone without connection to the cabinet? is that correct? An this is applicable also if I connect the amplifier to a mixer (by using Line out). That is quite strange because all other amplifiers recommend to never disconnect the speakers, with or without an headphone or something helse. Please help! I don't want do damage my DSL1HR. Thanks. Cheers.
What are the Preamp tube positions from left to right (looking from the rear of the amp) and what do they control? Thank you
Where can I download the Code 50 owners manual so I can get more from my amp?
