    Hi Everyone

    We have the new Marshall Stanmore arriving in 2 weeks
    Stanmore Black » Products » Marshall Headphones
    SMALL IN SIZE, BUT NOT SUBTLE IN SOUND, THE STANMORE IS A COMPACT ACTIVE STEREO SPEAKER THAT YIELDS CLEAN AND PRECISE SOUND EVEN AT HIGH LEVELS. STANMORE’S CLASSIC DESIGN IS A THROWBACK TO THE GOLDEN DAYS OF ROCK’N’ROLL, AND ITS ANALOGUE INTERACTION KNOBS GIVE YOU CUSTOM CONTROL OF YOUR MUSIC. WITH A VINTAGE-LOOKING FRONT FRET, BRASS DETAILS, AND ICONIC SCRIPT LOGO, THE STANMORE IS RIGHT AT HOME WITH THE REST OF YOUR MARSHALL COLLECTION. HOOK IT UP WIRELESSLY VIA BLUETOOTH, USE THE RCA INPUT TO PLUG IN YOUR RECORD PLAYER, OR SIMPLY CONNECT THE COIL CORD THAT’S INCLUDED TO YOUR PHONE USING THE 3.5MM AUXILIARY INPUT. THE STANMORE IS ALSO COMPATIBLE WITH DEVICES WITH OPTICAL OUTPUT, LIKE APPLE TV.

    mmm......love the design. It is a handsome addition to any modern mid-century styled room. A conversation starter. I hope it sounds as good as it looks.

    tried this while I was in BTB Rockwell. Looks and sounds good
    It would sound better if this is placed near or against the wall.

    This list for US$500 but I didn't ask for the local SRP

    I read that this does not have any wireless connection. Too bad, considering the price and the competition.

    I guess the review I read was more of a preview rather than a proper review. Thanks.

    i won this speaker at the philmug christmas party raffle today (thanks, charlie). man, this thing rocks!

    i don't know too much about audio--i have several pairs of decent earphones, and that's that--so this was a total revelation to me and my wife. i set it up as soon as i got home, hooked up an ipod shuffle to it, and suddenly the room went wild!

    the first track it ever played (you don't know what's coming up in a shuffle) was "light my fire" by the doors, followed by "my funny valentine" by barbra streisand, then "sabor a mi" by luis miguel. so you know this is going to be our perfect companion into our old age (i turn 60 in a few weeks, ha ha).

    i can't believe how full and smooth the sound on this thing is. i've set the volume to 4/10 and it already fills the bedroom. (of course, i'm scheming to move it to my man-cave, if my wife lets me.)

    the retro styling is also age-appropriate to the new owner ;)

    i took some quick shots and put up an unboxing gallery here:

    thanks again, philmug--this makes moderating all the portgasdaces in the forums all these years worth it! ;)

    I really do, Charlie, and not just because I won it. Am down in Davao and can't wait to get home to enjoy it again. The best endorsement I can make is that knowing now what it can do, I'd happily buy this speaker if I didn't win it--but of course I'm glad to have it at a 100% discount ;)

    God. This Marshall Stanmore speaker is incredible!

    I've only got it halfway up, and it's already shaking the house down.

    It's almost P20k, but it's worth every centavo.

    And yes, it has Bluetooth. And optical.

    It's good! Oh my God, it's so good!

    Picked this up after Christmas and I must say it's darn good!

    I have issues though playing music from my Macbook Air over Bluetooth (stutters a lot) but when using my iPhone via Bluetooth, there are no issues.

    Anyone else having the same stutter issues?

    Not really. Works fine with all my gear.

    I use it on optical with my Apple TV, regular composite on my TV and Bluetooth on everything else. Works just great.

    Maybe there's something wonky with your Air's Bluetooth. I had the same problem with a Bluetooth headset with my Air before, but it went away when I reinstalled the OS (didn't take very long, it was only 128GB). Maybe you should backup the Air and reinstall the OS.

    Thanks Adel. Hooked it up to my medial player using an optical cable and it was awesome.

    I shall try your suggestion of reinstalling Mavericks on my MBA.
