Marshall was best known guitar amplifier, but the English company have since ventured into personal audio gear and more subsequently, into speaker system that bears the hallmark design of Marshall guitar amplifiers. Recently, the audio equipment maker gave its three iconic Bluetooth speakers, namely Acton, Stanmore, and Woburn, an upgrade. These updated Bluetooth speakers now feature an upgraded DSP for improved dynamic range compression, as well as the latest in Bluetooth technology, Bluetooth 5.0, and Qualcomm’s aptX technology.
This is an update to the company’s trio of Bluetooth speakers and therefore, as before, the Acton II remain as the smallest of the three, while Woburn II is the largest and Stanmore II has a size that sits somewhere in between the two. It is worthy to note that, regardless of each speaker’s size, not one of them is designed with portability in mind because none of them had a battery built in. That is to say, they all have to be plugged to a power source. So, do take note.
Other highlights include Class D amplifiers, a bass reflex cabinet system, multi-host functionality that allows two devices to be connected wirelessly simultaneously, and they are, of course, app-enabled which lets you customize the sound by selecting the EQ presets, set up stereo or ambient mode, wake up the speaker and whatnot – right from the Marshall Bluetooth app.
Marshall Acton II Bluetooth, Stanmore II Bluetooth, and Woburn II Bluetooth speakers are available now in a choice of black or white, priced at $249.99, $349.99, and $499.99 respectively. You can pick them up over at Marshall Headphones website, or on Amazon.
