Marshall’s latest speaker, the Emberton, is a far cry from the company’s 4×12 cabs. In fact, it’s so small that it fits in your hand. No roadies required to transport this Marshall speaker, just charge it up and off you go!
It used to be that the name Marshall would conjure up images of massive guitar cabinets stacked one on top of the other. However, in recent years, the company has really broken out into lifestyle products, with several Marshall amps/cabinets shaped bluetooth speakers (with built-in voice assistants), and a wide range of headphones to match. And its latest Bluetooth speaker, the Emberton, couldn’t be further removed from those massive Marshall behemoths of days gone by. It is so tiny, you can carry it in your hand!
The Emberton comes wrapped up in a classic Marshall design and has a ‘True Stereophonic’, multi-directional sound. A full charge takes 3 hours and provides just over 20 hours of play. Or, if you’re in a hurry, a quick 20 minute charge will give you 5 hours of playtime.
A multi-directional knob controls the volume, play, pause, skipping tracks, and also functions as the on/off switch.
Tough little speaker
This little box comes with an IPX7 water-resistance rating, so it should be able to handle a bit of rough and tumble. You should have no problems taking it out and about on trips to the park, the beach, or camping.
If you were looking to get a lightweight, portable Bluetooth speaker, then this is certainly one worth checking out. It has a lot of useful features and, of course, that iconic Marshall logo on the grill.
