This week the folks at Marshall – a team known for guitar amps, mostly – have let it be known that they’ve created a new speaker for the mobile universe. This is the Marshall Acton Speaker, the most compact speaker Marshall Headphones crew have made outside of a pair of… well… headphones. And it’s not made for your guitar. Unless you play guitar on your smartphone or tablet, of course.
This speaker comes with an active stereo loudspeaker with bass reflex system. One 4-inch woofer with 2x 3/4-inch dome tweeters with a frequency range of 50-20.000Hz and a crossover frequency of 4200Hz. The Marshall Acton Speaker weighs in at 3KG and has the ability to connect to your devices in two ways.
The of two ways to connect with this speaker is with a standard 3.5-mm headphone jack. This works with a double-ended coil cord with 3.5mm stereo plugs that comes in the box. You’ll also be able to connect to this speaker with Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR. Wireless, that is.
Three analog knobs for tuning, one classic look for aesthetic coolness. This speaker is 256 x 160 x 150mm in size and is set to be delivered in two colors – black or cream. This unit will be available through Marshall Headphones online and in fine retail spaces for $300 USD starting on November 3rd 2014.
