What I do notice is that real discernible reverb kicks in at 1 O'clock. It is there below that but obs more subtle.
In other words do you have it dialled sufficiently?
My JVM goes very quite when I use it on low volume but intermittently I assumed because it wants power through it. I will update this if I get any issues with the DSL. I am in England and call Marshall Direct when I have probs. They are extremely helpful.G...yeah I usually have the reverb in full all the time on the DSL amps because it’s so subtle. Twice when I powered it on the signal was dry even with dial in full. Turned it off and back on reverb was there. Same thing happened on my JVM205H a couple times before. Very odd. This is my second 5CR.... first one did the same thing, but much more often so I returned it to GC. This new one has only done it twice since I had it and it’s going on 3 weeks now.

Had this reply from the Marshall service dept when asking about the DSL5CR i returned:-
The phase splitter was replaced with mosfets instead of a preamp tube. You should have no issues running the 12BH7A in your amp"
Didn't get on with the new 5 but am loving my new DSL40CR.
I just wanted to say Hi! I just got the DSL 5CR as my first tube amp and love it!!
I noticed the clean channel seems to be louder than the ultra gain channel. Somewhat normal?
Also, I'm trying to get a Cat Scratch Fever tone, do I need a tube Screamer to boost the clean channel?
Welcome to the forum new MF’rHi, i’m new to the forum. Just got the dsl5cr, and though I'm pretty happy with it, there are some issues i'm not sure about.
1) the clean channel won't drive even a little when cranked up, it stays as clean as ever, except for a little clipping when hitting hard on the low E. It doesn't sound to me like valve saturation.
2) on both channels there's an exaggerated hi-mid resonance that can be very upsetting when playing somewhat loud above the 12th fret. It is more noticeable with my Les Paul, and with the distorted channel, it makes my ears hurt, but it is there all the time in less amount.
I still dont know if its an aesthetic thing or some sort of technical issue.
Thanks in advance for your inputs
