Marshall’s Emberton II Now Packs Bigger Punch

Iconic brand Marshall has updated its biggest selling speaker of all time. The second generation of the Emberton speaker now packs an even mightier punch than before to deliver the ultimate listening experience on the go.

Two 2-inch full-range drivers aided by two additional passive radiators deliver the sound Marshall is famed for, but don't underestimate the output just because of its compact size. By separating out the spatial content of stereo recordings, the company says, “Emberton II produces a sound much larger than its size and outperforms most speakers in its class”. Emberton II utilises True Stereophonic, a unique form of multi-directional sound from Marshall - stereo sound, but not as you've heard it before. 

Experience superior spatial and binaural sound that flows around you and fills any space. This is absolute 360° sound – where every spot is a sweet spot.

The IP67-rated design, with a silicon exterior and solid metal grille, is tough and resilient. You can even submerge Emberton II in 1m of water for up to 30 minutes - more than enough time to fish it when it's been accidentally dropped in the pool! 

Emberton II also offers 30+ hours of portable playtime on a single charge which is 50% more than its predecessor. Charging is simple: plug in your speaker and return to full battery in 3 hours. If you need a speedy top-up, Emberton II has a quick-charge feature, with only 20 minutes delivering a playtime of 4 hours. 

Download the dedicated app if you want to find the right sound with equaliser presets, and to keep your speaker up to date with Over-the-Air (OTA) updates. Emberton II is straightforward to use, with a multi-directional control knob that allows you to play, pause, skip tracks, adjust the volume, and turn the speaker on or off.

Bluetooth 5.1 will keep you connected to your favourite streaming devices or platforms, while Stack Mode will allow you to amplify your sound with a multi-speaker session by connecting your speaker to other Emberton II speakers. To activate Stack Mode, just use the controls on the speaker  -stack as many Emberton II speakers as you like and create a sound as big as your imagination.

Marshall Emberton II is available now and sells for $169.99.

applause awards

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
