Marshall has introduced The Marshall Wireless Multi-Room System, the first Wi-Fi speaker lineup from the iconic audio company. The new multi-room speakers build on the designs of its wireless Bluetooth product range that debuted four years ago with the Stanmore, and the new speakers follow the same style and naming convention, with the classic Acton, Stanmore, and Woburn designs now available in “Multi-Room” versions, starting at $350. The new speakers provide full AirPlay compatibility along with support for Chromecast and Spotify Connect as well as Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a 3.5mm input jack along with RCA inputs to connect a traditional turntable or preamp.
Designed for smaller spaces, Acton Multi-Room ($350) is the compact entry-level version of the trio, promising large, well-balanced and powerful audio despite its diminutive stature. Stanmore Multi-Room ($450) provides a more versatile option with advanced components and sound appropriate for any room large or small, however users looking for even more will appreciate Woburn Multi-Room ($600), which packs in dual 5.25” woofers and a total of 110 watts of power, and promises clean high trebles, deep low bass and a clear mid range. All three speakers feature seven one-touch presets to provide direct access to artists, albums, and playlists on Spotify or Internet radio stations, and can be configured in just a few steps with Marshall’s Multi-Room iOS app, which also provides the ability to adjust the intensity of the LEDs, tweak the equalizer, or quickly switch between speakers. The Marshall Wireless Multi-Room System will be available for pre-order on Sept. 1 and is expected to be available for purchase globally on Sept. 21.
