Marshall Kilburn II review

 

Small and mighty

Clear top notes ; Rugged and portable ; Cool retro aesthetic

Slightly muddy bass ; Can feel heavy

Marshall’s Kilburn II is a fantastic update to its bestselling predecessor, with a stunning retro amp-inspired design and a well-rounded sound. While the bass can be a little muddy at times, it’s excellent for playing guitar music, and its portability...

Marshall Kilburn II review

 

Marshall's best speaker to date simplifies the features, tones down the look but tunes up the sound

Excellent sound ; Moderate moisture proofing gives greater versatility ; Long battery life ; Good looks

Has apt-X for better sound from Android… but no AAC for iOS ; A bit overpriced at its RRP

Marshall Kilburn review

 

Vintage looks with excellent sound

Louder than you'd expect ; Bass and treble controls ; Earth-pounding bass

Not as portable as competition ; Doesn’t take phone calls ; No playback controls

The Marshall Kilburn is a great-looking and great-sounding Bluetooth speaker that, despite some flaws, we can’t help but fall in love with. The retro styling and superb sound is bound to appeal to those looking for a conversation piece.

Marshall Kilburn II review

 

A rocking little speaker that can be surprisingly polite too

Good sound ; Sharp Marshall look

Could be more water resistant ; Limited controls ; The very best have deeper bass, firmer mids

A rocker-favourite speaker that can go from polite to a party monster with the twist of a dial

Marshall Kilburn II review: The best vintage speaker

 

Marshall's second iteration of the Kilburn speaker is a real rock ‘n' roll star – everything its predecessor should have been

Beautiful design ; Adjustable on-the-fly bass and treble knobs

Loud but unrefined sound ; No smart functionalities ; Comparatively expensive

The Kilburn II, much like its predecessor, doesn’t have a lot of features to boast about, nor does it sound as good as some of its rivals. It might seem hard to justify splashing out £269 on an above-average-sounding speaker, however, the Kilburn II is...

Marshall Kilburn review: The kickass retro speaker that turns the style all the way up to 11

 

Stunning looks, plenty of power and a tempting price tag, but the Marshall Kilburn isn't the most feature-packed speaker

Looks fabulous ; Plenty of power and bass ; Integrated power supply

No water proofing ; Bluetooth only

The Marshall Kilburn isn’t the most brilliant sounding speaker or the most feature-packed at this price. But it’s good enough to justify the new £159 price tag, packing with plenty of power and volume and, for its size, lots of bass and a nicely...

Marshall Kilburn II hands-on review

 

You'll have to speak up, because we've been testing the Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth speaker -- and it's shockingly loud. Designed not just for indoors use, this speaker has a battery inside that makes it ideal for outdoor use too. Aside from the...

Very loud ; Eye-catching design ; Good battery life ; Support for two Bluetooth connections

Expensive ; Only vaguely portable

Marshall Kilburn

 

The Marshall Kilburn portable Bluetooth speaker delivers a powerful audio performance that can be tweaked to your liking.

Excellent audio performance with adjustable bass and treble. Cool retro amplifier design.

No speakerphone functionality. Unique look isn't for everyone.

Performance and Conclusions The Kilburn can get quite loud — if you top out the volume on your device and the speaker itself, the speaker doesn't distort. Even pumping up the bass EQ all the way and playing a track with intense sub-bass, like The Knife...

Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth speaker review: Great sound and nostalgic design

 

You'll pay extra for the branding, but this is a strong and well-designed speaker, even it it isn't built by the company famous for its "Marshall stack."

Very good sound ; Clevery nostalgic industrial design ; Supports multiple clients

Limited stereo separation ; Very pricey

Once again, the Kilburn II is a very nice-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker. That makes any recommendation merely a question of value. As with Fender's Monterey, you're still paying a lot for appearances. If you're okay with that, I'm sure you'll be...

Marshall Kilburn Bluetooth speaker review: Vintage style and throwback sound

 

“That's a Bluetooth speaker? That looks so cool,” was the first thing my wife said when she saw the Marshall on our counter-top. Of the half-dozen or so Bluetooth speakers I've had in for review over the past several months, none have struck up as much...
