I thought it is obvious that I meant Marshall should reissue without the flaws of the old series. It would be only the logical thing to do. First and foremost by placing the tubes vertically downwards/upwards from the chassis. Guess that was the biggest problem with the design because of the heat from power tubes flowing directly upwards to the big filter caps and other electronics.I voted no because of the whacky design, not because of the functionality or tone.
I agree with @jcm800gridlock - love the size and look of the amp, and I also like the warmer tone than say a DSL.
The 600 I recently got needed some minor repairs, and it was a PITA to do the simplest things like change out a pot and just reconnect a wire.
If they were to "re-issue" the series, I might change my vote if they included the same circuit in a more standard chassis/board/tube configuration.
