Marshall combo

I was hoping to get some opinions about Marshall 1974X combo.
The sound quality, tone, and so on...
Is it good for studio use?

I think it's a great sounding amp and I wouldn't hesitate to use it for studio use if that was the tone I was going for.

It's definitely not a quiet amp (like a 5 watt Champ or something) though and it lacks the punch and bass response of a bigger Marshall (Bluesbreaker w/6L6 and/or EL34 plexi 50/100W).

I also find this posts placement under "Budget Gear" odd because for the money you could buy any number of handwired Marshall clones that are better but lack the big "M" logo. It's not an inexpensive amp IMO.
