Marshall, known for his guitar amplifiers, launches his new Wi-Fi speaker, dubbed Uxbridge Voice. This model is distinguished by its reduced dimensions (128 x 168 x 123 mm) and by the use of Apple's Airplay 2 wireless transmission technology, a first for Marshall. It connects to the home Wi-Fi network and is controlled by voice thanks to Amazon's Alexa assistant. It is also compatible with Spotify Connect.
30 W power, but mono sound
The Uxbridge Voice also has a Bluetooth 5.0 interface and delivers mono sound with a power of 30 W. For control of volume, bass and treble, Marshall abandons its traditional rotary knobs in favor of touch controls.
This multiroom model does not carry a battery and requires a nearby power outlet.
The Uxbridge Voice will be sold on April 8 at a price of 199 euros, in black or white. A version with Google Assistant is scheduled for June 11.
