New Music Gear Monday: Marshall Stanmore iPhone Speaker

Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker image
This is just about the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. It's the Stanmore speaker by Marshall Headphones (yes, that Marshall of guitar amp fame). The Stanmore is an extension amp/speaker system for your Bluetooth phone, but it also has 1/8th inch, optical and RCA inputs as well.

Powered by a Class D amp (I can't find a real power stat anywhere), the Stanmore is stereo with two 3/4 inch dome tweeters and a 5 1/4 inch woofer in the middle. The unit has the standard Marshall amp setup of volume, bass and treble, two standby modes to save power, two push buttons for source and Bluetooth pairing, and the same on/off switch found on their guitar amps.

It's available in black or cream color, and retails for $400, which also includes a coiled 1/8th inch input cable as well. Why settle for just any Bluetooth speaker setup when you can have a Marshall and be cool?

I'm very curious how this stacks up (no put intended) to the IK Multimedia iLoud Bluetooth speaker. They both seem to be aiming at a very similar market, but the iLoud is $100 cheaper.

I would buy both, this Marshall and the iLoud. I'm sure the Marshall has the edge on sound (it is twice as powerful) But, I am not 100% sure if you can monitor your sound with the Marshall over bluetooth, you can with the iLoud.

Lately, I've been drinking the IKmultimedia kool-aid. I have the iRig, iRig Pre, & iRig midi.

I feel obligated as a musician to cut an EP using only mobile technology.

It's always a hit with friends to use a karaoke app like StarMaker with speakers that can monitor sound via bluetooth.
