Marshall home stereo

Marshall Headphones & Amplification have launched their first home audio product, an active loudspeaker that (surprise) looks just like a guitar amp. The Hanwell, named for the London location of Jim Marshall's first shop, has a wooden cabinet with the iconic Marshall vinyl wrapping and black/gold grill cloth. No word on pricing, or whether it goes to eleven. "Hawnell Revealed"


  1. Does it come with a complementary “Too old to rock and roll; too young to die.” tattoo?

    I’m pretty sure that every time an expensive stereo speaker dressed up as a guitar amp gets sold, a budding musician sells out to Mood Media Corporation in order to pay the bills…

  2. Quality used gear works as well. Doesn’t have to be Marshall, either.

    /My 1st guitar amp was scratchbuilt from a vacuum-tube phonograph.

    1.  Simple, put everything on a second MP3 player, then hook that one up to that Hammacher Schlemmer alpenhorn from a few days ago, then hott rokken

  3. Considering that the Marshall sound is pretty much exactly the opposite of Hi-Fi ie guitar goes in and jimi hendrix comes out this doesn’t make a lot of sense. Of course compared to laptop speakers I’m sure it’s the (altec) voice of the theater. 

    1.  I have experience in naming these.  We used to call ’em Voice of the Cafeteria speakers at John Abbott College back in the day…

      Better name: “Voice of the Basement”.
