Marshall upgrade? HELP!


I bought a marshall mg50cfx I like it. it sounds good to me. but it isn't a tube. I bought it for $400. now I'm thinking about upgrading to a dsl 40c. it's $700. I'd have to sell my amp on ebay for about $300.
So my question is. Strictly for recording purposes, is the upgrade worth $400? Will it sound THAT much better in my songs??

In an word??? Nope. There is just not that much of a difference. Been playing 40+ years. If Marshall made it, it should do you fine.
