When you start cranking up the volume or switch to speaker mode, you will hear the degradation in sound quality that can ruin the feel of the music. Whether you’re a music lover, the composer who is on the move with your music-making laptop, or a street musician wanting to give a concert feel to your fans, you should look at the beautiful, affordable, and powerful Marshall Stockwell Speaker.
The Form of Functionality
If you were to see the Marshall Stockwell Speaker in a picture without a reference for scale, you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s a full-sized offering from the company. The Marshall style has been miniaturized down to a portable size without losing any of its allure.
The Stockwell isn’t precisely lightweight compared to your average Bluetooth speaker at almost three pounds, but it does come in a convenient rectangular prism shape that is easy to stuff into a backpack or equipment bag. The speaker surface is 10.1 inches wide and 5.7 inches tall, with only two inches of depth behind it.
You will almost certainly want to opt for the version that comes with the folding cover-plus-kickstand add-on. It’ll keep the beautiful Marshall logo safe while in transit, and the cover folds up to keep the speaker situated stably when you’re getting ready to kick off the party.
Bring the Noise
If you’re going to haul around a speaker, you want to choose one that is up to every task. The battery life of the Stockwell sits at a full 24-hour day’s worth of usage when fully charged. The stored electrons power the dual tweeters and woofers through the Class D amplifier, giving you an impressive wall of sound from the minuscule speaker. You can control the bass and treble independently, and you can switch from the Bluetooth connection to the 3.5 mm audio input as needed. Having the mix of wired and wireless connectivity massively expands the capabilities of the Stockwell. If your music just isn’t complete with bass levels that rattle your bones, you may notice the lack of deep bass in the Stockwell. Otherwise, the speakers are a useful addition to the toolkit of musicians, composers, and music lovers.
