Marshall, the headphone company and not the loudspeaker company of the same vintage, announced two new portable speakers. Like the company’s previous offerings, these speakers ooze a retro vibe. The two new speakers Stockwell II and Tufton will join the lineup of Kilburn II model, which will stick around as the midsized Goldilocks option.

Marshall new Speakers Stockwell II and Tufton
Besides all the speakers are portable models they are with a vertical orientation, internal batteries. While talking about the different aspects of the speakers by Marshall, they have wireless capabilities and a rugged casing that should survive a trip outside.
The first one is the smaller Stockwell II, the little speaker is about the size of an iPad Mini, though as thick as a phone book. The internal battery is good for four hours and the casing is still tough, though sports an IPX2 rating, so it’s not as durable as the Tufton. The speaker is a bit smaller and the music quality is as well.
The Stockwell II is a great personal speaker, but it doesn’t produce a pounding sound like the Tufton. Use the Stockwell II for a quiet campfire and the Tufton for a backwoods bonfire.
Coming to the two new speakers, who joined the Marshall audio family, the Tufton is larger one. It is an impressive sound quality, clear and powerful sound even when on battery. On the other hand, the highs carry over a solid low-end. It’s heavy. This isn’t a speaker you want to take backpacking, but, if you did, the casing has an IPX4 water-resistant rating, so it’s tough enough to handle most weather. Marshall says the battery lasts up to six hours.
Well the missing link is that, these speakers don’t have Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa integration. And users either have to connect a device through a 3.5mm port or Bluetooth.
