Marshall Kilburn II

 

Marshall Kilburn II: Rocky in appearance rocky in nature. This gorgeous Bluetooth speaker looks great and is also a fun listen

Gorgeous design ; Excellent build ; Powerful sound ; Splashproof

Could do with greater separation

A stylish speaker with sound worthy of the Marshall name.

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 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

 

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 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: 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

Even though it has a hefty price tag, I’d recommend it to those individuals who want to live a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. If, however, you’re looking for a multi-purpose, better sounding speaker, you might want to consider the JBL Xtreme 2, Libratone...

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

Combine that with superb build quality and an absolutely incredible attention to detail and you have a real winner. It’s just a shame that Marshall couldn’t push the sound quality up to 11.

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...
