Well I've had this for a few weeks now and I am likeing the vintagey tones it puts out. I'm using it mostly with the 2x12 (MX cab with 70-80s) in the pic, but have also tried 1x12 Greenback and 1x12 V30 cabs. The greenback and 70-80s cabs sound surprisingly similar (thats a good similar), the V30 (Orange PPC112) sounds a little warmer overall. I should point out that this is at home volumes using the low power (.3 watt) setting. Contrary to what you might think it gets plenty loud at this power setting - certainly loud enough to be heard right through the house - but still sounds good when turned right down. So why choose this particular model? I'd been gassing for a Class 5 head to do some mods on and sit on my 2x12cab. When the Origin was announced I thought it might well do the same job. This lives in my practice space so portability was not a concern. As I already had cabs and wanted the controls to the front (I'm sick of amps with the controls on top) a head was the obvious choice. For home, the power is switched down anyway so the 20 is plenty. I'm really happy with this amp. IMO in its various guises it represents great value for money. Its not high gain in comparison with a DSL but gets all flavours of a nice crunch happening. The tilt and presence contols make it easy to dial in a general tone to suit whatever your playing through it, which can then be fine tuned with tonestack or guitar controls. The footswitchable gain boost is useful, although I find I tend to leave it on a lot! Generally I just plug straight in. I hope Marshall sells a bundle of these and it stays in the range for some time.
