The Marshall Stanmore speaker has a retro design with analog controls, brass details, vintage front fret and iconic script logo. That’s where the old stops and the new begins. It features Bluetooth wireless, 3.5mm auxiliary, RCA connection or optical mini-jack. When not in use, it has PowerSaver and Standard standby modes to reduce environmental impact. This speaker is also compatible with Apple TV and other devices that use an optical output.
Being a Senior Art Director, I find myself drawn to these vintage qualities. The attention to details, materials and typography draws a heavy appreciation of this product design. These qualities seem missing in some product design these days.
Although I have not heard the sound quality myself, it’s touted to fill your small spaces with big sound from a compact footprint. Knowing several musicians that use Marshall amps, I would be willing to believe that the sound is going to be great.
This would be a perfect gift to kictstart anyone’s heart, especially the rocker on your list. It can be purchased from a number of retailers including apple.com.
