Oh sorry, I forgot to tell that I have the DC-5 A Version. I tested it again and found out there is some noise comming out. If I turn all Volume Knobs to 10 and the Tone Knobs to 0 its around bedroom level. The question is is that normal or is there a faulty in. Sorry for the english.

Thanks

yes this is normal. The tone stack on the clean channel is after the second gain stage and before the gain control (unlike the lead channel where the tone stack is at the end of all the gain stages). By turning down all the tone controls then you're stopping any signal going through the major gain stages and therefore no signal gets to the power amp.
