Marshall - Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker - Brown

  • Model: STANMORE BT BROWN
  • SKU: 6042401
The Stanmore is a compact active stereo speaker that yields clean and precise sound even at high levels. Stanmore's classic design is a throwback to the golden days of rock'n'roll, and its analog interaction knobs give you custom control of your music.

With a vintage-looking front fret, brass details, and iconic script logo, the Stanmore is right at home with the rest of your Marshall collection.

Hook it up wirelessly via the latest version of Bluetooth, featuring aptX technology, use the RCA input to plug in your record player, or simply connect the coil cord that's included to your phone using the 3.5mm auxiliary input. The Stanmore is also compatible with devices with optical output, like Apple TV.

The Stanmore comes with two standby modes, power saver and standard, to minimize your speaker's environmental impact when not actively in use.

    I originally looked at the typical portable bluetooth speakers with lithium batteries. After listening to several, I was very disappointed by the sound quality, even for the speakers that were getting really good reviews. Because this Marshall Stanmore was in the same area of the store, I listened to it and found it to be far superior. The Stanmore has bass and treble controls to allow you to tweak the sound to your liking, something that is missing on most other small speakers. It also gets fairly loud for being so small. It terms of sound quality and volume, it will blow away the competition. While this speaker is portable and not that heavy, it is not small enough to put in a purse, and it does not come with a carrying strap. It also does not have a lithium battery, so it needs to be plugged in to be used. Having a lithium battery allows use away from an outlet, but the battery will one day fail, and most portable bluetooth speakers do not have a lithium battery that can be replaced, or easily replaced. So, when it fails, you will need to replace the speaker for most models. Also, lithium batteries need to charged and depleted periodically to maintain them. In any case, if you want something for the beach, the Stanmore is not what you want because it does not have a battery and is not waterproof. But if you want something for a lake house of ski cabin and you are driving there, the Stanmore is perfect. In terms of bulld quality, the Stanmore is very solid and high quality, way better than most portable bluetooth speakers. The Stanmore is between the Marshall Kilburn and Woburn in terms of size and sound quality (the Kilburn is the smaller, and I think it comes with a lithium battery that can be replaced). The sound quality of the Kilburn was less than I was looking for, and the Woburn was too large, which is how I ended up selecting the Stanmore. Marshall has some other small speakers for home use, but I have not seen them. In summary, I found the Stanmore to be small, but provide great sound for the size. I preferred the fact that it did not have a battery for my planned uses.

    I had been looking for awhile to replace my Denon shelf system. It had mission speakers and I think 70 watts... but what once was compact was now bulky and cumbersome. WIRES FOR DAYS. So I read a million reviews and narrowed it down to a few choices, the Sonos play 3 was one and the higher end Marshall unit. The Sonos really does the job well and blends in any environment and the Woburn Marshall had a few low points. SO... I went with the Stanmore and it is worth every penny. The style and build quality are top notch and way cool, the sound, the bass, just wow. To top it off you can plug a turntable into it. Go get one now.

    A creative timeless piece of art and mine is cream that makes it dreamy. That’s enough for looks. Let’s get to the soul of the matter and that’s the spirit of the Marshall Stanmore, paired with my iPhone EQ and its a match made in heaven. Sound quality is excellent. The Stanmore is in a class of its on. The next step up is the Woburn which I returned, maybe mines was defective, it was very unstable. The Stanmore is well balanced. I can get use to this, like forever after. Read the other 5 Stars reviews for more in depth details for me it was love in first sight and music to my ears. It’s a Bestbuy.

    My girlfiend and I went into Best Buy to purchase a bluetooth speaker for our baby shower the next day so we can provide some entertainment. We were looking around and tested some JBL speakers, some Bose speakers and a few others. Naturally, I assumed the BOSE would have been the best of what they had to offer, but then we saw the Marshall ones on the isle behind. We were blown away as to how clear and crisp the mids and highs were, not to mention the bass. This speaker not only looks like a Marshall amp and looks super cool, but for comparable speakers by the best names in this price range, it left them in the dust. We are very impressed and satisfied with our purchase. Don't buy anything else until you've tested this unit out!

    this is my 2nd marshall purchase, I also own the Kilburn. This speaker is phenomenal. sounds great and it can get loud. I use this in the living room for parties and personal use and everyone loves it. I'll use this when I tailgate at football games this season too. I love that you can adjust the bass and treble for each song. the sound is crystal clear and there is no distortion. it looks very classic too. it's big and heavy, but it's what you would expect from a speaker of this caliber. I also have a 5 speaker bose acoustmass system set up to my receiver but I prefer the sound from the marshall for music. Get it, you wound be disappointed.

    When it comes to music, I've always preferred headphones with amp and or DAC. However, it can be inconvenient for me when I can't just sit down but would like to listen to music without too much of a compromise on audio quality. The Stanmore fulfills my need in my little office. The sound fills the room and I'm quite surprised with how well it works with other genres of music. It looks very good as a decor, too! Plus, it works very well with Chromecast Audio; making listening to music easier than ever. While it won't replace my preferred way of listening to music, this speaker has become a great accessory to my daily life.

    Studio sound in a box

    This speaker is the bees-nees! I have gone through many portable speakers and wanted something more. The quality of sound is crisp and the bass is thumping without distortion. I did a sound comparison with the Stanmore and several other brands. It came down to the Marshall Stanmore 2 and the Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio 3. The Harmon does not allow customization for the treble and bass settings. At top volume there is substantial distortion in sound quality. The distortion and the difference in volume is what made me choose the Stanmore. You just can't great that sound! Plus it doubles as an amp! You can throw a block party with this speaker! It's really awesome!

    Sounds great out of the box. Bluetooth works really well. Walked into the house from the backyard to grab a drink with my phone in my pocket, never lost signal. Has individual amps for each speaker which was a major selling point for me. Must be plugged into an outlet which might be a drawback for some but i knew that before i bought it. Looks like a marshall guitar amp! This thing is a cool conversation piece for when people come over. Wouldn't recommend this thing if you want portability but i assume if your willing to fork over the $350 they're asking for it your probably not going to take it places where it risks getting damaged.
