Hello,
First of all I would like to mention that I like metal music. This amp doesn't fit to this style. But I haven't been looking for high gaine amp, because I've already got my Engl. So why did I choose this amp? The rison in it's lead channel that sounds great in the mix.
Pros: 1) Awasome clean channel, 2) AUX in, 3) Marshall distinctive lead sound for solo, 4) Good price for completely tube amp, 5) reverb, 6) Marshall design, 7) 10W mode
Cons: 1) It doesn't have modern high gain, 2) it's very loud even in 10W mode
I think DSL20 fits great for Blues and Rock with AC/DC style riffs. And of course it's depends on guitar pickups in your guitar.
I like the sound of this amp with more mids (at 3 o`clock) and less treble (at 9 o`clock) and tone shift swiched ON. With this settings it sounds more metal for me.
Thanx for reading. Be safe and stay in tune!

Extraordinary sound quality and features for this price
Play Tube, 10.04.2020
It delivers good sound quality and tons of features for a reasonable price. Build quality is OK. Sound tone is really a Marshall one. You can have a big variety of gain without pedals: even ultra high gain is possible without pedals. Almost all settings are playable and readable as a British sound. Even high gain settings are still having the dynamic style of overdrive. Equalizer is OK, but keep in mind that you will not have a lot of different styles of sound with this amp. Those who want a modern (2000s) ultra gain will have to use a compressor with it. Even cabinet simulation is good, at least, for usage with good headphones.
Must have for home usage if you love tube sound.

Classic marshall sound, ideal for home studios
Janesz, 31.03.2018
I have ordered by the purpose of recording at home, so it was crucial to find such an amp which serves good sound on moderate level of volume. I think Marshall made a step forward with this revision. I could try an older DSL model and the noise issue, which was really critic earlier, improved a lot (in the right way).
The split EQ is not the best when You're on a stage, because for sure You need different things for clean and distorted channels, but when it comes to recording this issue disappears. Although, I find the EQ section a little bit inconsistent, it is a great amp.
However, it also has to be emphasized that it brings the classic, old school Marshall sound. The well known resonance and presence knobs do their jobs as we know it from earlier. The reverb is really nice for the clean channel, sometimes I have a feeling like I play with a guitar with piezos.
There's also a tone shift by which more tweaking possibilities come forth.
Apart from the fact that the EQ section is tricky, there are no big problems with the amp. I think it's worth for the price.

Good Value Versatile Amp
KMickP, 08.08.2018
For the money this is decent value, an all valve Marshall with two channels,an effects loop (footswitch inluded) and various output options including an emulated out for recording or DI to a pa and easily enough volume to gig with. I chose this over the Origin for the array of modern features & the fact it has 2 channels which suits my needs better.
Using the rockier higher gain sounds, it gets a bit noisy so care is needed when recording with it but I guess that could be said of most amps. I haven?t had the oppportunity to fully crank it up in a gig situation but the lower volume tones are good and the low gain channel (clean) channel also can produce nice crunch sounds when pushed also. A good versatile lightweight head with great tone & sufficient power to gig with & a good array of features for most users! Delivered in less than 48 hours by the guys at Thomann, excellent!
