Jim Marshall opened his music shop in London in 1962. His main focus at the time was selling drums, cymbals and accessories. Pete Townshend (of The Who) encouraged him to build guitar amps and helped Marshall create the unique sound and design Pete was looking for.
Available in Brown, Black, White, and Pitch Black, the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth speaker brings to life the classic iconic design of the Marshall guitar amps that have been rocking stages for almost 50 years. The vintage front, retro brass details, and Marshall script logo make your music come alive with style and substance.
It can be hooked up wirelessly through Bluetooth using aptX technology or with the classic 3.5 mm coil cord that is included. It is also compatible with devices that have optical output, like Apple TV. In addition there are RCA inputs to connect to a multitude of devices. There are two standby modes, powersaver and standard.
The Stanmore is 13.8 inches wide, 7.3 inches tall and deep, and weighs 11.2 pounds. It’s size allows it to pack a bigger punch than most portable bluetooth speakers. It’s 80-watt class-D digital amplifier, 5.25-inch woofer and two 0.75-inch tweeters are both powerful and dynamic.
Marshall says “The sound is rich and articulate across the entire spectrum, from the deep and powerful bass, throughout the midrange and on to the highest highs. The overall effect is brilliantly reproduced music, full of energy and drive. Adjustable bass and treble dials provide you with custom control. so your music always sounds just how you like it.” But don’t just listen to Marshall, Time Magazine calls it “The best home bluetooth speaker you can buy.”
