Of all the pitches I receive, those requesting I take a look at speakers or headphones are the most common. To be frank, there are really only a handful of quality Bluetooth speakers that our readers aren’t already hyper aware of, and we could easily fill our pages with negative reviews of them.

Marshall’s offering ‘Acton’ hits the sweet spot for me. It’s from a reputable name in the industry, and flies just far enough under-the-radar to ensure not everyone in cyberspace is hyperaware of its existence. Plus, it looks pretty damn cool.
From the moment you open this thing you can tell it’s cut from a different cloth. Not a detail was overlooked in recreating an accurate representation to the amps that your favorite rock bands have used to rock out for decades. From the classic Marshall logo on the front, to the retro appeal of its faux leather-wrapped body, gold finishes and classic grill. This is undoubtedly a Marshall product.
Even the 3.5mm cable looks like a miniature replica of a chord that could just as easily in Hendrix’s guitar as your smart phone.
