http://www.marshallforum.com/marshal...ad-dsl40c.html ...I love mine, but I'm coming from never having a tube Marshall other than my C5 so I'm still a little amazed by it.

Eurotubes - Marshall DSL-TSL-JVM "How to" Bias Video

You guys with 201 and 401 amps have to take the amp apart to get the test points and trim pot. Here is a pic. Marshall recommends a setting of .675 volts for the 201 and 1.375 volts for the 401, I feel that the 1.375 is way too hot and recommend a setting of between .8 to 1 volt if you are using the test point and for the 201 to .400 to .500 is good. Here are some pic's of the 201 and 401
When biasing a Marshall 201 for the JJ EL844 tubes since they only dissipate 9 watts you would bias them between .300 and .375 volts. When biasing a Marshall 401 for the JJ EL844 tubes you would bias them between .600 and .750 volts.

Re: Dsl 40c

Thanks bro, I'm looking at the new dsl40 though. I'm guessing the layout is different from the older models?
