MARSHALL Stanmore III Bluetooth Speaker - Black
The appearance of Marshall Stanmore III retains the classic Stanmore square design, regardless of the color of the shell, it is matched with brass-colored panels and knobs.
On the brass panel is the Marshall standard configuration, with lever switches, independent combination keys to control playback and song switching, input signal switching buttons and 3.5mm jacks for AUX access, as well as separate controls for volume, bass and treble output. Three knobs.
In terms of configuration, Marshall Stanmore III is updated to support Bluetooth 5.2 connection. The official said that after updating the Bluetooth module, the connection stability of Stanmore III will be stronger, and the delay control will be better than before. When using it, we also found that using the Stanmore III to play movies and directly connect the phone to play games through Bluetooth is no problem.
However, Stanmore III is mainly positioned as a home speaker. More often, it will be connected to home audio and computer in the form of wired speakers with RCA or AUX jacks. Most of the time, the mobile phone is only connected to the audio to play music at will, and the usage mode is the same as ours. The small wireless speakers that you will carry with you are different.
In this case, the wireless performance of the Stanmore III only needs to keep the playback of music and videos stable. Occasionally, it is enough to connect a mobile phone wirelessly to play music, or even a laptop or a projector can be played stably via Bluetooth. This is enough.
Marshall Stanmore III supports Marshall Bluetooth App control. When the speaker starts Bluetooth for the first time, it can directly wake up the pairing mode, and it can play directly after connecting. In addition to playback control, the app also comes with a very common OTA upgrade function. Marshall emphasizes OTA upgrades so much, and it is believed that some new features will be launched through OTA firmware updates in the future.
The sound performance part is believed to be the core upgrade point of Marshall Stanmore III.
Marshall Stanmore III is also equipped with a 5-inch woofer and two 3/4-inch tweeters. The tweeter used this time is a new outward-sloping design and is equipped with a new waveguide. Marshall officially said this Processing enhances the soundstage performance of the Marshall Stanmore III.
Of course, Marshall Stanmore III is also equipped with Marshall's Dynamic Loudness technology, which is used to adjust the tone of the sound and control it in a relatively balanced state.
In terms of actual sound, the Marshall Stanmore III is standard Marshall style.
In the preset mode, the Marshall Stanmore III's bass is very prominent, the volume is sufficient, and the power is also strong, with a sense of impact with a solid hammer.
Subject to the SBC encoding, Marshall Stanmore III's performance in the amount of information and details is not too prominent, and it is generally sufficient. Generally listening to rock or some atmosphere-based music is not bad. If you want to listen to details, at least it is not recommended to connect in the form of Bluetooth.
Considering that the RCA cable I have in hand is also an AUX cable that is transferred to a single 3.5mm connector, I will directly use a normal 3.5mm male-to-male AUX cable to connect the player.
In the Bluetooth mode, it mainly shows the style of Marshall Stanmore III, and after connecting the cable, there will be more sound characteristics of the playback device.
After the updated waveguide and tweeter design, the sound field performance of Marshall Stanmore III has been improved. Whether it is Bluetooth or wired connection, you can feel the new generation sound field is more open than before, and will not be limited to one. In a small space, the feeling of stuffiness is a little less than that of the Stanmore II.
