Does anyone know where to find information about firmware updates for the Marshall Multi-room speakers? (Stanmore, Acton, Woburn).
Like a changelog or latest firmware date?
I want to find out if Marshall is even working at fixing all the known problems at all or if they just totally abandoned these products.
My current firmware:
Marshall Stanmore Multi-Room
Chromecast v: 1.28.102057
Marshall Acton Multi-Room
Chromecast v : 1.28.102057
Hello Marshall Support Team,
I consider buying a Marshall Code 25 or 50, but I'm really concerned about the master volume problem with these amps, which has been discussed in length in this forum (see ? ? ? or ? ) [sorry, seems the URL-links to the topics are deleted, the topics were "code-25---master-volume-issuses", "code-50-master-volume", "code-master-volume-issue" and "master-volume-marshall-code-50", all about the master volume knob, which goes from very low immediately to very loud].
In one of these threads you seem to acknowledge the problem and state, that your R&D team will look into this.
So here are my questions:
Is this problem solved with newer versions of these amps?
Does the problem show up regularly with all amps or does it affect only some devices?
Is there any chance to replace the Master Volume pot by myself if the problem shows up after some time?
Thx in advance for you reply.
With regards - snoopy
Just saying: I find these almost-daily advertisement-posts in this forum very very disappointing. Let alone today - up to now - six such posts, that have nothing to do with Marshall or our concerns and questions!
I think we need a better watchkeeper here.
every company who sells digital amp made some upgrade with more amp or efx or cabinet or upgrade a better firmware with better tones. you do nothing! I've asked you - almost one year ago -, by mail, if marshall was programming an upgrade and in your mail you answered yes..I think was untrue, it's the worst support I've ever seen in digital amplification.
Ok Marshall we bought your product thinking it would be a good product. With trusted support. You have failed your customers and your products with no support for the code amps that your customers bought. And now most are stuck with a half working amp that they can't sell or not happy with. When will you get off your butts and fix the amps with a firmware update? And support the product and the consumers? Let us know so we can either stick it out or move on to another product.
I have the Code 25, and just installed the latest updates (1.44) to the firmware. However, I still cannont get the Gateway app to recognize the amp. I am connected via blue tooth as I can play music from my Android phone over the amp, but the controls from the app don't work at all. Again, when I search it does not find an amp. Help?
Please fix this, Marshall!
The only way to listen music on Woburn is via cableless connection. You cant plug your TV or DVD player in it, as it has a huge delay.
I've spoke with someone of Marshall team, and I was adviced that, this product is not ment to be used with TVs, Piano, Guitar or any other devices. So, how many speakers I need to own in my house? One for music, a soundbar for TV, amp for my guitar?
I would giveup multi-room feature if AUX and/or RCA had no latency!
If I did know there would be latency over AUX and RCA I would never buy this expencive speacker! Bose Soundlink had the same issue, but they DID FIX it with with an firmware update. Why Marshall didn't fix it yet?
So Please dear Marshall team! If you read this, please! Fix the latency over RCA or / and AUX so I can love my speaker again.
for an amp company that makes amazing amps that sound even more amzing with a cranked out fuzz in front of them, im suprised to find that the marshall code (i have a 50) does NOT have any type of fuzz!! this may be there are hundreds of different fuzzes and each one has a different sound, but they could at least have a generic fuzz, like a big muff clone, or mxr blue box. so marshall, PLEASE add a fuzz, an octave fuzz, and for us jack white fans, a microamp boosted fuzz!! or any code users have any presets for these effects??
My Code 25 cannot communicate with my phone via Marshall Gateway. The software cannot find and connect to the amplifier as if there was no bluetooth connectivity, but there is as I can listening to music via that. I use Galaxy A5 android.
Could you help me to solve the problem?
It seems that all of us code owners has the same problem with the master volume, it's a double potentiometer vertically soldered to the board. I've measured my master vol pot, both pot vipers seems to miss contact from time to time when you turn the knob. So thats means to me a broken potentiometer. The surface inside the pot where the viper travels is partly broken. I noticed that the pot does not have anything to do with any software or firmware, so no firmware update will help here. So my question is where to buy a new master volume potentiometer for marshall code 50. Best regards keep up the good work.
I recide to open my code 50 cabinet. It was not just a simple sound change matter. For me this cabinet is the low point in the project. With this upgrade I believe now th speaker moves freely. Of coarse you have all those open cabinets advantage, more crystallinity, less punch low freequencies, more spacial sound distribution (less directionality)... For me the stage effect was quite positive. Some time ago I was really deciding to kick it out but now I am very satisfied with this little amp.
Boss is in version 3 of it's Katana amps:
Fender Mustang GT is in version 2:
Are there any plans to upgrade the Code to 2. 0 to include additional amps and effects?
Actually I'm totaly not interested in bluetooth connection, but of course I understand that it might be an essential prolem for some people...
But there are some other problems I'd like you to find good solution for.
1. Master volume. From 0 to 10% there is almost no sound, over 10% it becomes very loud.
2. Decreasing sound level with Volume pot results in decreasing USB signal level - not acceptable for players using USB output for recording in DAW software. It would be nice if for clean preamp gain at 2 and volume at 3 give recording level about -6 dB, now it is about -36 dB...
Best regards, Jacek.
P.S. What is a frequency range of CODE 25 speaker?
Hi, I need a little help, I'm a newbie on this...
I know my code 50 doesn't have a "line out" but it features a headphone out, can I conncet the amp to a Yamaha mixer? I want to control my guitar volume with the mixer, plus a mic and an acoustic guitar.
If that is possible, how should I set the master volume, the preset volume and the gain in my marshall?
Today I tried to play my Marshall code 50 and noticed that there is acutally no sound coming through.
I already changed the cable to make sure that the cable is alright.
I also noticed that there is no Headphone sound and the amp tuner is not working neither.
The speaker makes the normal light buzzing noise when turned on, so I assume that it is not about the speaker.
I did a firmware update just now, but I didn't help.
I really don't know what to do anymore. I barely played the amp and never transported it neither.
Why it is suddenly not working is a mystery to me.
If you have any advice please let me know.
I visited the dealer recently and tried another CODE 25 amp in the shop with the same latest FW version.
The same bluetooth behavior was observed (as described in many threads here, for example this ).
If you insist that it's a HW problem - please make an official statement that CODE 25 amps with serial numbers XX-XX have faulty Bluetooth Modules and you would like to recall/replace it. I think you can easily check your production and make a quality check on this case.
I think there are only few ways forward:
- a FW update with a fix, promised a long time ago. Is it really so hard to rollback a piece of code, revert some changes from the latest FW update?
- official recall, so that we just return it and get a 100% working unit instead.
- make the firmware code open source, so that we could fix it ourselves and make further improvements.
Have any of you CODE amp owners found a good Robin Trower preset? Thanks.
I recently purchased a Code 50 and have been trying to connect it to the gateway app on my Android phone. The phone connects to the amp successfully via bluetooth and I can stream the audio out to the amp directly using Spotify but when I go into the gateway app, it says "Not Connected". I tried the "Scan for Amps" button but it doesn't find anything. Any help is appreciated.
I researched 1x12 open back vs. closed back vs. ported cabinet guitar cabs. My experiment with my Code 50 amp was to remove the back without unplugging anything so I could here the difference between closed back and completely open back. The amp really came alive with a lot of punch and presence while ridding the boominess that occurs. I removed the power cord socket and cut a square the same size as the speaker. This was an improvement but I liked the complete open back sound better. I then cut the back out more leaving just enough stock to support the existing power cord socket hole and protect the electronics inside the cabinet. I will continue with cosmetics such as painting inside black and/or add a grate for protection. To my ears the amp really came to life open back. I will keep it this way. It is an easy experiment to try without sacrificing anything, just remove the back cover screws and pull the back away. If you hate it you just refasten it and leave it original.
