Marshall’s New Bluetooth Speakers Offer Even Better Sound, Same Ultra-Cool Looks

Marshall is bringing the band together one more time, with three of its popular Bluetooth speaker models getting an improved soundstage and eco-conscious overhaul.

At first glance, the new Acton III, Stanmore III and Woburn III look quite similar to their four-year-old predecessors, but behind the signature checkered grille cloth you’ll find a host of upgrades.

Now equipped with tweeters that face outwards and updated waveguides for a more expansive sound, the new range also features an all-new Placement Compensation feature – and if they work as intended, these could become real challengers to the best Bluetooth speakers. .

The speakers appear to work in a similar way to Sonos’ TruePlay sound correction technology on the Sonos Move and Sonos Roam, measuring for nearby reflective surfaces that may affect the sound and then automatically adjusting their EQ profile.
