Throw away your sound dock, because Marshall just launched the Hanwell Loudspeaker… and it will blow your mind!
Most anyone who plays guitar, or has seen the likes of Slash and Nigel Tufnel shredding it up, will immediately recognize the iconic Marshall design ethic down to its iconic plastic nameplate on the front grill and gold accents.
Weirdly, in its 50-year history the English amp manufacturer has never made a home audio device. Now it’s launching the Hanwell, an active loudspeaker designed to spit out rock music from whatever audio device you choose to feed it. If you’re wondering, the name comes from Jim Marshall’s first ever shop.
It certainly looks the part, with its analog power switch, classic volume and tone knobs, curled cord and classic vintage-amp vinyl covering. It remains to be seen how good it sounds, of course, but let’s be honest: you’ll be buying this as much for the look as the performance. Currently there are no details on price—but it should be available soon.
