This combos sucks, very muddy and no low end at all + they get extremely hot and take damage from that heat. I would definitely go for the stack. Marshall combos just sound way worse than the heads on proper cabs...

It depends what you need it for, the only time you will get a decent sound out of it is on gigs, where you have the chance to crank it all the way up. This sucker is loud and I mean LOUD.

It's not what I'm looking for in a Marshall. I think EL34's are more genuine than the EL84's that sits in this amp. Sure, it still sounds "marshall" but with a twitch.

400 dollar is a very good price for such an amp, however, the downside of DSL is that it has no preamp output.
