The manufacturer’s hallmark
While other brands have decided to “modernize” and accommodate new design trends, Marshall has remained with the same style that saw it born as a manufacturer in 1962 and it cannot be denied that today it has become a hallmark in the audio device industry. Logically, the protagonist of this analysis is no exception.
So, Marshall Stanmore III it maintains the “rock and roll” style of the first era but at the same time maintains a minimalist way that helps it to contribute to the general design of any room in which it is found. From the Marshall inscription in the center and the brass control knobs, in addition to options for sale in black, “vintage Cream” or brown, everything looks really attractive.
It is worth noting that the official dimensions of the speaker go up to 35 cm x 20.3 cm x 18.8 cm and its total weight is 4.25 kilogramswhich means that it can be placed on any table or piece of furniture in the room without problems, but it is clearly not designed to be moved frequently or taken with you outside the home.
Less power but better quality
For this third generation of the line, Marshall Stanmore III boasts an acoustic headroom that promises to be larger than its predecessorwhile maintaining the quality that everyone is used to appreciating in the brand’s creations for a more immersive sound experience.
The team’s end results are outward-sloping dome tweeters and updated waveguides dedicated to achieving audio output that can spread evenly to every corner of a room. Also appreciate a built-in dynamic loudness technology that takes care of maintaining a tonal balance of the sound so there’s no change in sharpness no matter what volume it’s set to (50W max available power).
At the controls level you will find a variety of knobs on its top face for analog control of actions such as source change, volume change, bass control, treble control, play/pause, skip a track backwards/forwards and logically on/off. Then, in terms of physical connections present there is both a 3.5mm jack and an RCA input.
Finally, Stanmore III allows you to use any device within a close range of 10 meters for sound reproduction thanks to the Bluetooth 5.2 standard. This version not only allows the highest possible sound quality, but also optimizes other parameters such as transmission stability or audio synchronization. You are also promised OTA (Over the Air) updates through the brand’s application that will allow future improvements through software with new functions at your disposal.
