    The current Studio line is quite successful, but it is missing an obvious model, the Studio Modern (Vintage, Classic, and Jubilee are out). I think it should be a channel switcher (also missing from the lineup). Something akin (not exactly the same, be creative) to a JVM-1 with the 20 watt power section.
    Yeah, Studio Modern...

    Well, at least it will have a cathode follower the DSL20 lacks.

    You nailed it. Perhaps just single gain channel, getting rid of all the noise.

    Although, I recall an interview by Randall Smith where he stated that the Recto got "that" tone when they added up all the switching circuitry unrelated to the sound path.

    I can see this happening for sure . You have to stranglehold ( Ted Nugent on my brain ) all corners of the market !

    I've always been disatisfied with my Code50 the speaker and cabinet seemed to be trying to give it a stack in the room kind of sound/feel but it has a super flubby bass and can't quite get the EQ balanced.

    I've taken it apart and if you remove the amp and power power section you basically have a couple of credit card size boards with all the effects in and a huge front panel. If I had a Code 20 with the smaller front panel and the capacitors+ heatsink for the power supply and power amp weren't so chunky I could cram it all into the CODE 4 switch footswitch quite easily.

    I would actually really like one of those CODE footswitch pedal thingies with all the electronics inside. I always felt that if Marshall had aimed for a slightly higher price point with their Code amps, like $50 more. They could have had a less resonant boxy sounding cabinet and higher quality speaker they could have fixed most of the complaints from more experienced musicians. It's almost there it's frustrating.

    They did shoot for the extra $50 in price, and are getting it too. When they first came out, the 25 was $200, the 50 was $250. Then, I don't know how long after release, they raised the price to the current levels, $250 and $300 respectively, without any changes in build quality... Still seem to be selling 'cause the price ain't dropping. I bought a 25 at $200, took it back shortly after. I don't think they are worth the new price... Anyway, just my opinion.

    Still would love to see a Studio Bluesbreakers/JTM45 added. Right now, I'm pretty sure I'm set on amps with what I have in my SV20, 4010, and C5 (along with my 2 Fender Bassbreaker). But if Marshall put out a Studio Blues breakers combo... All bets would be off at that point.

    That seems to be somewhat of a consensus, a JTM Studio... SB20

    The SB20 will be an interesting series but the original it's a 30w amp. I think will be better an affordable 30W BB or an amp with his clean sound and his tremolo sound.

    .... ok. How about this then? . .
    Half the amp industry is about recreating plexi sound, feel and response at Any level... and re-amping with things line Fryette power station/black cat unleash, is popular way of getting there..
    How about a plexi with built in load box and re-amping, dual foot switchable masters with individual loops. Class D amp that takes ANY load. 200 watt or more... and since this is the re -amp-age...Plexi Rampage... solving all the impractical issues with a plexi for live work ...a practical plexi... plexi rampage...
    ... thoughts?

    I suppose it'd be a bit much to ask them for a simpler series of amps that doesn't incorporate any of these common design flaws...

    PC board mounted tube sockets

    PC board mounted control potentiometers

    A computer based channel switching system

    More than two channels
