Reduce soddisfatto da Acton prima serie scopro con delusione (leggendo anche in rete…) e grande disappunto ceh nella seconda serie:1) In connessione AUX non va mai in Stand-By2) In connessione Bluetooth va in standby ogni 20 minuti nonostante ci sia regolare segnale in riproduzione3) Non c’è possibilità di modificare o escludere la modalità standbySe l’assistenza non risolverà il problema (come presumo) procederò immediatamente al RESO! Grazie

The Stanmore II is in some ways an impressive piece of audio equipment. Pleasing retro design. Solidly built. Relatively easy to setup (though having to use the Marshall app to connect is a minor annoyance). Reliable performance once set up.
The problem with the Stanmore II is the problem with all standalone Bluetooth speakers: sound quality is, at best, mediocre.
Don’t kid yourself. This is no substitute for actual stereo. You will get *much* better audio from hooking up a Bluetooth adapter like the BluDento — at less than a 1/3 of the price of the Stanmore — to an existing stereo receiver or integrated amp. I frankly wish I had done that before blowing $$ on the Stanmore.
The Stanmore II is ultimately overpriced for what it delivers. If you’re happy streaming mp3 quality audio over Spotify, then the Stanmore is probably adequate. If you’re hoping to get Hi-Res audio via Tidal or Qobuz, do not bother. Note as well that the Stanmore doesn’t come with AptX HD, which is disappointing for a 2019 product.

If you just care about the sound, get this. It sounds awesome. I mean, how such a (relatively) small speaker can deliver this quality of sound, I have no idea. It looks great, it sounds awesome and it’s portable and easy to move around…so whats there to dislike? Well, so far, I haven’t been able to use Bluetooth with it so I have to connect to it with a cable (I know, so 20th century!). The issue is that Marshall hasn’t released PC software (so my laptop is out) and when I tried to download the app to my Android it didn’t let me because my Android wasn’t the latest generation. Very annoying. So, i guess I have to buy a new new phone so I can use Bluetooth in my new expensive speaker. Not an ideal solution. But it’s difficult to be pissed about it because the darn heavy little box sounds sop darn good! So, if you have the newest Android or you don’t mind to use a cable to connect, get this speaker. You won’t find a better sound for the price.
Update 4/26/19 (now it’s 5 stars)I haven’t had any power issues as reported by other reviewers. I use it almost every day and the sound is as good as it was the first time. I originally gave this speaker 4 stars because of the issues I had with the wireless connection but honestly….who cares? With a speaker that sounds this good and looks so stylish it deserves 5 stars. I have other means to listen to music and I always go back to this little guy. That’s the best recommendation I can give.
Update 7/18/19As I type this I’m listening “O Fortuna” from “Carmina Burana” blaring from this speaker and I don’t get how be it can be labeled as “mediocre” sounding. Of course it’s not stereo sound…it’s not supposed to be. That’s like asking a Prius to accelerate like a Ferrari and then complain it’s too slow. For a stand alone small speaker, this is outstanding as long as you don’t expect something that it’s not. Is it expensive? Yes it is but, as usual, you get what you pay for and in this case, its quality, reliability and a great sound in a small package. Highly recommended as long as you know what you are buying.

I first heard a Marshall speaker when I started living with a friend. He had the first generation Woburn, which is the top of line speaker from Marshall consumer devices. Needless to say, we all fell in love with it, and spent countless hours listening to music or watching the latest TV shows together.
From that day, I had decided to get myself one of the Marshall speakers, and when I saw this one with no cost EMI in place, I just couldn’t resist.
The sound quality is divine. You can compare it easily with any standard Bose or Sony speaker in the same range, and of course, try listening to songs you have heard multiple times before. I am certain that there is at least one instrument in the song which you could not distinguish earlier, which will be as clear as freshwater when you use this device.There is no distortion even on the highest volume, and you cannot just use it at full volume anyways, lest you wanna damage your ears. This is a perfect setup for almost anything, be it a bedroom, TV cabinet, computer setup, or any other nook and corner of your home where you want to listen to some good effing music.
Marshall is an iconic brand, and the fact that they started making consumer grade products after the professionals who used them for 50+ years started pestering them to make one, is quite an achievement in itself. Words cannot accurately describe the quality of sound this provides, and I think the price is totally justified. This can kick any 5.1ch HT system’s ass, and just short of surround sound, there is nothing else you would want from a single unit this light and capable.

I will echo what many have said, these sound pretty mediocre. I wasn’t blown away by them. I’ve had better, cheaper, more room filling sounding speakers than this. But, was a Prime Day deal, and love the looks of them.
One disappointing thing, since these don’t have a battery and have to be plugged in, I expected louder sound output. When setting up, which you’re required to download the app, which you can then delete after setting up, I tested a song on them. The speaker was about 15 feet away and I couldn’t hear anything, despite it saying that it was 50% volume. After turning up, it seems like about 80% volume is a good volume to listen to, but that doesn’t leave more space if you want them louder. It just felt like most of the sound was controlled from 60% to 100%. 59% and down, was very minimal in loudness and could barely be heard.
And about the app. It’s unnecessary. They only require it to harvest your info. “Sign up for newsletters, and let them watch your usage.” If you try to pair your phone to it the way you can with all the other bluetooth speakers, it will reject pairing. So just pair, set your settings, then delete it off your phone.

Bigger than I thought it would be, I dont know why I figured it’d be smaller, but overall the product is good, the sound quality is amazing I watched reviews on YouTube before buying and decided this was the best for price range and stylishness, I like the modern vintage design, I did give it a 4 because it recently started having this issue where it disconnects when I visit an app such as snapchat and then return to my YouTube video and find that the audio is gone, it just takes a quick disconnect and connect for it to all be well again, it’s not a big deal, but it definitely isn’t ideal either. If you want a good looking speaker with great sound I definitely would recommend this.

Good sound, great appearance for the buck, BUT my unit is on the way back to Amazon, one day after delivery. After playing at various volume levels for the first two hours, the power shut off. I tried repeatedly for a restart, with no luck. It took almost as long to navigate Marshall’s unnecessarily cumbersome registration-activation procedures. Rather than risk a repeat (non)performance, I ordered a pair of Bluetooth Klich — for twice the price, alas — upon receiving Amazon’s return authorization.

This speaker is both aesthetically pleasing and a great sound system. The ability to adjust the bass, treble and volume is extremely handy when listening to any song. The only down side to this speaker is the inability to connect via normal Bluetooth. This particular brand asks you to download an app that requires you to have the app open in the background in order to use the speaker. Not the most convenient thing

Suena genial no, lo siguiente!!! Una de las mejores compras que he hecho! Lo he conectado a la tele también y va genial para música y para ver pelis. Es brutal para lo pequeño que es!

Partiamo dal fatto che i prodotti Marshall sono una garanzia, sia qualitativa che di suono.Rispetto ad altri prodotti, Marshall costruisce le casse ancora in legno, non in plastica e questo è già un punto di forza!Ho 3 modelli: Kilburn, Stanmore e Woburn. Tutti sono costruiti molto bene, li ho smontati e i componenti sono decisamente di ottimo livello, soprattutto i driver.Il suono è molto potente, non distorce mai e molto equilibrato.Estetica vintage imbattibile!Connessioni perfette, il bluetooth 5 è una scheggia.Rispetto al modello precedente, la versione 2 è più morbida sui medi, diciamo più in secondo piano, nel primo modello le voci e le chitarre erano spostate tutte in avanti, con la musica rock era uno spasso!Che aggiungere? Se amate il buon suono e l’estetica vintage andate a colpo sicuro!

Immersive sound, excellent frequency response.Carefully packed and delivered. Delivers surprising performance compared to its size. Even with high volume you dont get slightest detoriation in sound quality.
