When it comes to rock and roll music, Marshall amps are an icon since 1966. They have been the preferred choice of musicians and rock bands. Bear in mind, however, that they are not consumer products until recently, with the release of the Marshall Monitor headphones. Now, the company is expanding that concept with the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker System. These devices evoke the aesthetics of Marshall amps but delivers performance and connectivity for music lovers with smartphones.
Again, it is worth noting that the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker System is not a Marshall amp converted into a Bluetooth speaker. They are designed to evoke the appeal of Marshall amps and not to replicate their performance. At 13.8 inches wide, 7.3 inches tall and deep, and 11.2 pounds, it is much bigger than most Bluetooth speakers currently available in the market. For this reason, it packs a lot more audio power compared to most speakers of its irk.
Outside you will see the signature Marshall Stanmore fret grille cloth but underneath it is a 5.25 inch woofer, a couple of 0.75-inch tweeters and an 80-watt class D digital amplifier. Very impressive specs for a Bluetooth speaker so this speaker is not all about looks. If you are looking for a classic rock style, the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker System fits the bill perfectly. It comes with a brass toggle power switch, round metal Source/Wake and Pair buttons, and analog control knobs for Volume, Treble and Bass. Located at the back is an optical and stereo RCA audio inputs and a toggle switch for selecting Standard or Powersaver standby modes. While it does not have a ¼-inch jack but an adapter for the 3.5mm port is included.
The bass and treble knobs of the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker System are not like the rest because they are designed like amps knobs with levels from 0 to 10. Marshall claims the Stanmore can reach up to 22,000 Hz. So if you want the ultimate Bluetooth speaker system, the Marshall Stanmore may be the right one for you.
