    Interestingly, someone else mentioned it being based on the 2061X. The dimensions on the 20-watter look very close to a 2061X. I'd love to see a non-HW angled 2x12" to go with it!

    I have a Jubilee angled 2x12 and was hoping that the 20 watt Origin might fit on top nicely. Unfortunately, if the Marshall specs are right it is going to be a little wider than that cab.
    Maybe Marshall should have thought about that? That jube cab sounds killer and if they made it in black it could be used with a lot of other heads.
    What I would like to see Marshall offer is a 2x12 like the original Jubilee series. Those were like 24" ( which would accommodate the Origin 20 ) wide and also came in an A & B cab. Those sounded very nice from what I remember.
    Something like this:

    The 20 watt Origin head will fit nicely on top of my Orange head and cab I built.

    I'm going to build a pair for myself, I don't want to spend 800$ on a 2x12 I can build for 350, including speakers. For 500$, I wouldn't bother, but I can build 2 for less than the price of one of those... and pick the colors scheme.

    These cabs sound awesome and the construction is excellent. I use one with my PT20 as my main rig. It will be perfect with the Origin.

    That's exactly the kind of configuration I was talking about. I had a 1966A that was great. The HW is awesome but just way too expensive. Make a new 1966 for it!

    Had to come over from sister forum MLP to get in on the discussion. Love Marshalls.

    I've always wanted a Plexi or 2203/4, but the expense for a NMV amp you have to crank at home to get the best out of held me back. If these are even close, they answer the call. Especially the 50w head. 50 watts when you want it, 1 watt when you don't. Hell yes! And I don't have any qualms about being made in Asia. My DSL40C has been bullet proof (now saying that I expect it to start smoking tonight :ugh:). Still gonna wait for 3rd party demos/reviews.

    A lot of people wondering how good the Origin will be for the price.
    Seems to be a lot of DSL-40 lovers here (Vietnam).

    I wonder if the origin's DNA is a vintage modern w/el34 instead of kt66?

    I've seen the fx loop on the head but can't see one on the combo. I rang PMT in Bristol regarding availability and as luck would have it the Marshall rep was there. He said you're looking at the end of April to mid May. I so hope it's not drawn out like the CODE. Not that I ever brought one but felt sorry for all the people waiting. This is probably the best thing in my opinion that Marshall have done since Jim became a rock angel. Only met the man once and he nearly crushed my hand.

    Thanks for the link. I checked out the site and I think I might go with 2 of their 1936 style cabinets (stacked when needed) if I get the Origin 50H. Nice prices!

    Dude what are you talking bullshit? First of all Marshall is British, not American. So 'nothing is made in America anymore'?. Marshall never was. Besides that my Marshall Silver Jubilee re-issue is made in Bletchley England. The JVM series is also made in England, just as the Bluesbreaker re-issues. Only the lower priced 'budget range' of Marshall is made in the far east. Fender also makes her higher priced amps in its home country, the USA. If you're happy with an asian made Marshall that's okay, it's all personal. I am not. The quality is far less than the British made amps. So is the sound. But again; it's all personal. If you think the quality is as good as the British stuff and you don't hear a difference then go buy an asian Marshall.

    Does Marshall make and populate pcbs with only British made components? ...there's a certain amount of asian in everything, regardless of where the final product is assembled and labeled from. Thinking that there isn't asian made components in your Jubilee reissue is fooling yourself.
