they are probably talking strictly about the MG series and the notorious problems with the fan and reliability.

no, their tube amps have been used by my major recording artists for years and years. Tubes in general can be unreliable, but that's the nature of vacuum tubes, not a reflection on Marshall.

Are all MGs tube amps? I dont think mines a tube and it works fine. I like my MG250DFX, ive had it for almost 2 years with no problems. I never wanted a tube because i thought i would blow it despite the good sound.

if you dont push the amp to its absolute limits then you more than likely wont blow your amp. so many people try to get more volume out of an amp they should be mic'ing.

If its not loud enough, mic it.

As far as not getting a tube amp for reliability problems.. i would totally rethink that situation. tubes sound so much better than solid state, unless youre playing some extreme distorted music

No, MGs are solid state amps. Marshall hybrid and solid state amps should be avoided like the plague.

hi i've got a quistion about those tubes of you guys, do they change the sound of your guitar. and do they have different sounds compared to each other? cause i've been using a solid state fender and it sounds great clean but when you turn it up it starts growling, and i've been thinking about tube amps but they don't seem to have the same clean sound.

Valve amps (or tube) have better cleans in my opinion, in general that is, a lot more full and rounded, shinyer too, and sound better turned up.
The best way to actually understand the differences is to play a few valve amps, and compare them to your solid state.

if you've played SS amps before but have been playing tube amps for years then go back to a SS amp, you will notice how inferior the SS amps are. The tone just will be non-existant
