    Marshall told 'someone' that 35mv was optimal. If plate voltages are similar across all of the amps (they should be, its a mass produced amp made in Vietnam) then you would be at 60%. You may like that, you may not.

    Thanks. I ordered one of these amps yesterday. Can't wait for it to arrive.

    I read your post. You mentioned turning the MVs to 10, however yours are not set at 10.
    Did I misunderstand your intent?
    Thanks

    I meant that some like the sound better if the MVs are set higher with lower Channel Volume. I think it just sounded noisy so I don't do it.
    The DSL40C has no global MVs, which would be the same as setting the DSL40CR MVs to 10 and adjusting volume using the Channel Volumes.

    On the CR it also looks like you load the tone stack down as you increase the channel volume; more so on the classic channel than the ultra channel. This reduces bass. That said, I don’t think it will be all that significant.
