Marshall Kilburn II Portable Speaker

Sep 28, 2018

Once known solely as a guitar amplification company, Marshall has transformed themselves into one of the most stylish and iconic audio device manufacturers in the world. And they don’t look to be slowing down, if their new Kilburn II portable speaker is any indication.

An upgraded version of the original Kilburn — which was at the top of its game when it was released — boasts some big changes. For starters, it now has a 20w amplifier for the woofer and a pair of 8w amps for the tweeters, offering up a solid boost to its volume and overall sound. It also now has Bluetooth 5.0 aptX technology for better wireless playback and plays for 20+ hours on a single charge. The biggest change, however, comes in the form of a back-mounted speaker — meaning this new edition offers up 360-degrees of sound, which is an excellent addition for a go-anywhere travel boombox. The upgrades also include a water-resistance rating of IPX2. That doesn’t exactly make it dunk-able, but it will keep its guts safe from a splash of liquid here or there. Pricing is set at $300.

Purchase: $300
