Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Here's something for you to watch:

Personally, I love the TSL and DSL lines. If you want to play heavier genres, I'd say go with the TSL rather then the DSL because the DSL tends to a be a little floppy and the TSL can tighten up real nicely.

EDIT:

I would look into purchasing the head version, I think you'll be much more satisfied overtime.

^countless death metal bands in the 90's used it, ask any metal player on this borad who knows what they're doing, they'll all tell you that it's a rare jem and very well worth the money

I have a TSL head, and while its good, I dont think its really that good for metal, especially for Slipknot or Disturbed.

This.

The VH-140C ****ing rips. For that much, it will kill amps 2-3 times the price.

the VH-140c is the same as SS-140c?..

Yeah, the circuit is slightly different, but 99% of people won't be able to tell the difference.

I own the DSL 401. I love it to death, but it's no metal amp. Nor will it ever be a metal amp. It can put out enough gain for Metallica with a good overdrive but even with the mids on 0 it still seems to have more mids than Metallica; you get the brittleness of having the mids too low in general, but it still "sounds" like it has more mids than it should.

In short, the DSL combo is NOT a metal amp, it's a hard rock amp. I don't know about the heads.

The DSL401 has A LOT less balls than the head versions

I presume they've dealt with some of the heating/reliability issues, but AFAIK it's still the same farty speakers, and it's still a poor choice for anything heavier than AC/DC.
