I own both a Stanmore and a Woburn (recently), and I have never had a single issue with either. I've used the Stanmore literally daily for a few years as my main living room speaker for both streaming and AV-vinyl, and the sound and punch are both absolutely incredible. The price you've quoted sounds like a steal, and if it is in good shape I would internet cafe sweepstakes providers snatch that up. You might get the odd pop when it's turned up which can be startling when it happens, but small price to pay for tubes and quality.
I stream mainly from my laptop, and the only thing you may find is that for some reason mobile streaming from Spotify tends to be underpowered for some reason, although I had a similar issue streaming Spotify from my phone to a proper event hall AV system via aux cord so I wouldn't really fault the Stanmore for that.
Ultimately it is incredible sound and to be honest even my Sonos Play:1s have a hard time competing with a single Stanmore. The Sonos provide slightly crisper sound and the stereo is a clear advantage if that's important to you, but the Marshall sound is warm with deep powerful bass that easily makes up for some of the clarity loss (and I really can't stress enough that unless you're an audiophile and actually sit and compare them in an intense back and forth, you would have a hard time deciding which is better - I actually prefer the Stanmore for certain types of music).
I hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions!
I am experiencing some troubles with the battery of my speaker stockwell that I bought 2 years ago.
I would like to know the contact phone number of the technical service in Valencia (Spain).
I am experiencing some trouble with my Minor II headphones, as they do not connect anymore. Tried to pair them again, but they do not appear on my iPhone (7).... when switching on, the white light constantly flashes to green, but I cannot find any info about a green light.
I'm looking for some good "Shadows" tones like Apache, FBI and so on. Are they available somewhere?
Thanks for Your response, but i wanted To insist that popping Is not produced by the buttom, it is through The MX 212a speaker's cabinet, i have compared To other amps DSL And don't have this problem. Please help me..
What cable does someone use to hook up their ipad to a Code 50? it would a lightning to a ???
And why does one need a cable to hook up to the Code? if the Code is synched via blutooth then anyhting on the APP, such as updates or presets, should also be able to get tot he Code via the blutooth and not need a cable. Could this be a glitch on Marshall's end or they just never programmed it into the software to do it. Seems like an oversight, no?
Thanks for any help anyone can give,
Does anyone know of a good preset that would sound like the song “I’m Alright” by Neil Zaza?
I have had my code 25 for about 6 months and for a while now, everytime I connect my phone and edit in the gateway app the preset freezes and I cannot change anything or change the preset. On the phone it says I am changing but there is no actual changes happening. On the little orange screen on the actual amp it stays on that preset even if I twist the knob to change preset but can still play and change volume.
TodayI was getting sick of it and looked up if there are updates for the amp and there are, which I then went and installed the latest firmware update. But now when I turn on the amp it shows that it's on and shows the preset but stays frozen and will not play sound at all. Is the amp done or can it be fixed?
a month ago I bought my dsl 20hr, and i have an Excessive popping when switching channels .. it is normal ? please help me...
Hello mates! I just bought the awesome Marshall Code 50. I'm just wondering how you can organize your own presets in a specific order (and in what presets should you store them all), so you may have for example your very own organized preset: Rhythm preset - Lead preset - Clean preset - Crunch preset.
That being said, can you move factory presets to other spots to organize them at your convenience too?
Thank you mates!
I have had this Super Lead for 18 years or something and haven´t given the age much thought but the other day it just hit me that this has to be a Plexi and therefore it would be nice to maybe get to know what year it's made.
Serial no. SL/ 10780
For the past few weeks I've been hearing a scratchy sound playing with the background music during certain TV broadcasts (mostly discovery-like channels). It's almost an eery scratchy gieger counter like sound. It's fitting for the programs I'm watching (Strange Evidence, What in the World, Monsters Inside me), so I'm not sure if there is something wrong with my speakers, or if that's the intended sound.
Is there something I can play to test the sound output to know if it's my speakers crackling or not?
I notice latest firmware update v 1.44 july 2019, improves master volume control, it doesnt spike like it used to, can someone confirm this, what other changes are there ?besides bluetooth improvement also
Marshall user since early time, I work also in electronics repairs.
A customer brought me a faulty code 50 power amp. Is there any way to get a new power supply from spare parts to replace it ? I thought replace the original PS with a standard one but the original one gives 2 power supplies: main power an bluetooth power.
In the worst case where we cannot find spare parts, it is possible to get schematics or at least the values of the voltages ?
It will be cool to bring back to life this amazing stuff from a ledgendary brand
Thanks in advance
I try all suggestions in FAQ Support until "Last resort" But ..... nothing, I can't see the CONNECTED red button.
So the gig me and my band are about to play is getting closer and closer. 10 more days and I'll be on a stage again after 7 years. Seven years of playing by myself in my bedroom.
I got to the point where my approach would be to set my amp to a crunchy sound ala AC/DC, then kick on my SD-1 with the volume pushed and the gain turned up just a wee bit to tighten the low end and saturate a bit more. Use an EQ pedal in the loop to boost the volume for solos.
Now last rehearsal I turned up with only my guitar and my EQ pedal for the volume bump for solos. I couldn't be bothered to carry my heavy ass all analogue pedalboard with me and wanted to see how things would go. My JCM 2K DSL 100 was at the rehearsal space waiting.
Without my SD-1 I had to turn up the gain on the amp quite a bit more and change the EQ as well, cut more bass, kick in more mids and I was obviously missing some saturation.
So whilst it was harder to play and I lacked the distortion I also noticed that the guitar sounded way better and I cut through the mix easily. My other guitar player uses an ENGL Powerball MK2 through an oversized ENGL cab with V30s without any pedals, I have my DSL through a Marshall cab with G12-75s (cab belongs to another guitar player sharing the rehearsal room with us)
Now the obvious problem here is that I am competing with a V30 loaded cab whilst using the mid scooped G12T-75 Celestions, but if you ignore that for a minute my observation is the following:
Without a boost pedal my guitar sounds bigger and fits into the mix better. I have to be more accurate with my technique and my playing has to be tighter. More volume means less need for saturation and compression that a boost pedal usually provides yet it asks for a tighter picking hand.
I guess what I am trying to say or rather ask: Have you had the same experience? A boost pedal is brilliant when playing by yourself to get an amazing guitar sound, once the whole band is involved the pedal only buries you in the mix?
I think I finally understand how desirable it is to have an amp that does not need any additional help from an OD pedal. My DSL can sound as heavy as a Mesa Rectumfrier, but only when pushed by a TS-9 or SD-1. With the band it sounds better when no pedals are involved.
I came to the conclusion that I need to toss the gadgets and work on my technique more. Only use the boost pedal for solos and get to the point where my right hand will sqeeze a tight low end even out of a JTM 45.
Or I'll just bring my V30 loaded cab to the gig, kick on my SD-1 for my rhythms too and see how that goes
What are your observations folks? Do tell, cheers!
I accidentally plugged my footswitch into input for guitar. What could've happened to the FS? It seems like it doesn't work. Thanks
I have downloaded the gateway app on my phone, however it loads but i have no graphics to show what I am changing.
Operating system is huawies own emui 9.0.0
