    C19 mod also affects the classic Gain, making it slighty darker sounding..

    I say trade your old DSL for the new one.... Marshall seemed to address the "fizziness" of the Ultra, but at the same time, adding more gain to the Classic channel....

    If you are more into OD pedals for your dirt, I'd say the Origin would be a better choice....

    Hey guys. I've some time to break this thing in and I really love it. The only real gripe I have is it really needs a separate eq for each channel, but other than that it's great. I even like the stock speaker. It was a little shrill to begin with but after it loosened up a little it sounds pretty good. I've been playing a Sterling JP6 thru it and man it screams!

    Nice- enjoy. I was steered to a Blackstar a few years back (which I love) because I was told that Marshall's quality was not what it once was. This uspet me b/c I had a nice Valvestate amp in college but I needed to upgrade to a tube amp once I got my first LP and totally wanted to look down and see that classic logo. I'm glad they still put out a good product now and again (including my SL5 lol)

    I had a few blackstars, they're great amps for sure.
