I like this amp, the only improvement would be an additional input socket, but I bought it for one so no complaints at all. If you want a Marshall at a good price this is exactly that
Model Year: 2005
Price: $350.00 GBP200 (new)
Where Obtained: PMT
Features:
2 Channels with three band eq on each one clean and one "lead" It is more than loud enough for home use with a nicely controllable lead sound usiong the gain control and the volume on the guitar
Sound Quality:
THere is a quiet hum from the cooling fan but not noticable when playing. I play all styles through the amp on a variety of guitars single coil humbucker and acoustic, the sounds is musical even at extreme distortion with good clarity shining through. This is my second marshall and it behaves as expected which is why I bought it. Other amps could be better but gives me a good range of workable sounds. I have a Boss multieffect unit which stays sounding as intended through the clean channel.
Ease of Use:
This is a simple work horse, doing what it says on the tin, and that why you get a Marshall. Very easy to use
Durability:
Seems reliable but new so no real comment. Build quality appears robust, again like a Marshall

It's fairly good over all. A nice sound, just sort of middle of the road amp. Not bad.
Price: $200.00
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
Two channels. Clean: Gain and three EQ controls. Dirty: Gain, low to high contour, three EQ controls and volume. Also a reverb control.
Comes with foot switch to switch between channels.
Solid state power.
Has Output and input, and an effects loop.
Sound Quality:
The distortion channel is crunchy, not really fuzzy. True Marshall distortion. The clean is allright, just not very distinctive, a basic amp.
Ease of Use:
Very easy, I figured it out in a few minutes.
Durability:
It is very sturdy, but since I don't gig I'm not sure how steady it'd be.
