Marshall Launches New Bluetooth Speaker Range
Joining the rank’s of last year’s Kilburn II, Marshall and speaker manufacturer has announced its latest lineup of Bluetooth speakers which evoke the amp-maker’s rock music pedigree. Available now from $429.99.
The “stout-hearted hero” Kilburn II ($499.99) now has two siblings, the taller and thinner Tufton ($699.99), and a revamped version of the original Stockwell, Stockwell II ($429.99).
Each of the Marshall portable speakers promises 20+ hours of portable playtime on a single charge with a battery indicator on its top panel to keep track of battery life.
The new models feature the same design-scheme of the Kilburn II with a durable water-resistant casing, metal mesh cover grille, white stamped Marshall logo, and velvet and leather guitar strap carry handle.
Boasting multi-directional sound, the Marshall speakers include class-D amplifiers and custom-tuned drivers to deliver audio reminiscent of its rock and roll history — although created by Zound Industries.
All are equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless playback with a range of up to 30 feet/10 metres.
The smallest in the line, the Stockwell II offers the highest water-resistance of the group at IPX4 rating, coupled with its lightweight body at only 1.4kg signal it could be the preferred choice of travelling music-lovers.
The larger Tufton promises big sound to match its stature, although that may come at the cost of easy portability thanks to its 4.9 kg heft.
The middle ground may the Kilburn II — read our review of the speaker here — weighing just over half of the Tufton, but still promising big sound.
All three Marshall speakers are available now from Marshall’s Australian website and selected retailers.
