Originally popularized in the hard rock industry thanks to their powerful and iconic guitar amplifiers, Marshall has done an excellent job of diversifying themselves into the world of home audio with their popular headphones and Bluetooth speakers. Now, their offerings have gotten even better thanks to the addition of Amazon’s personal AI assistant, Alexa.
For now, the voice assistant tech is only available in two of Marshall’s offerings (albeit their most popular ones), the Acton II and Stanmore II. However, the addition is on top of all the other excellent features these speakers already have — like custom-tuned dynamic drivers, simple smartphone connectivity and control, the ability to link together and function as a single home-wide unit, and more. But now, you can also ask Alexa for reminders, use your voice to change what your speakers are playing, look up the names of artists you can’t remember, control the rest of your smart home devices, and so much more. Available this October, these new Voice Speakers start at $299.
