It Could Be The Loudest Smartphone On Earth: Marshall Unveils London
The London, which sports a matte black surface similar to the tolex covering of a Marshall amp, is equipped with two front-facing AAC speakers (13 mm x 18 mm) with enhanced volume and bass, two stereo jacks each with an independent volume control, and a scroll wheel with tactile precision, designed to provide quick access to volume control.
Among the London’s other music-oriented features, the M-Button provides users dedicated one-click access to their music, whatever the source may be, providing for control of music on top of whatever else is happening on the screen.
When it comes to sound, Marshall has employed the Wolfson WM8281 Audio Hub, with the soundcard providing the London with a separate processor for music, allowing it to play at a higher resolution, which also allows users to play uncompressed music such as FLAC format.
Access to a global equaliser is achieved via the M-Button, with users able to use pre-loaded profiles and adjust the sound, saving settings as a custom profile, with the global equaliser applying the user’s selected profile to whichever music player they use.The London also offers a Bluetooth connection via Bluetooth aptX.
