Time for honesty!!! I have owned MANY brands of music equipment. There are 2 features thatmatter to me. Sound good? Reliability? Some Marshalls sound good. Many are not reliable for long. Some are. Many are not. They cost a lot. They started building cheap shit to stay in business. Totally understandable. Works for a while. CHEAP electronics. Too complicated. Cheap mother boards - right next to HOT tubes. I have been at this for decades. Marshall amps do not cut the mustard for me any more.
