Marshall's mini Stanmore speakers: a small footprint for a not-so-tiny price. We first spotted these beauties back at IFA, and now it seems you can finally pick 'em up here in the States. If you're willing to shell out $400 apiece, that is. The diminutive take on the Hanwell (and, by extension, actual Marshall amps) is available now through the company's site -- well, the black version is, at least. Cream (as pictured above) appears to be sold out for the moment, however. Must be all the Jack Bruce / Eric Clapton fans out there.
INTRODUCING MARSHALL STANMORE
Small in size, but not in subtle in sound, 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 fret, gold details, iconic gold piping and script logo, the Stanmore is right at home with the rest of the Marshall collection. Hook it up wirelessly via Bluetooth, use the RCA input to plug in your vinyl 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 such as Apple TV.
The Stanmore is available for $400 in black or cream at marshallheadphones.com and other select retailers.
