Save $100 on the Marshall Action II Bluetooth Speaker this Black Friday
When it comes to audio amplifiers, British brand Marshall is one of the more iconic ones, having been the amplifiers of choice for many legendary rock and roll acts like Guns N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix. While music has gone from analog to mostly digital today, Marshall has nonetheless turned its iconic amplifier look into a miniature Bluetooth speaker. If you’re a fan of rock and roll, or you just want a great sounding portable Bluetooth speaker, the Marshall Action II is one of the better options around. Now for Black Friday, Best Buy is selling the speaker for just $150, over $100 off from its usual retail price.
The quality and attention to detail of the Marshall Action II are top-notch. From the rough elephant hide style textured cover, to the precise and heavy-duty switches and knobs, this is a speaker set that will have you dialing it up to 11 and rocking out to favorite tunes. Expect crisp, clean sounds without overbearing bass either thanks to the 15-watt class D amplifier and a single woofer that pumps out just enough bass without going overboard.
And despite its classic look, the Marshall Action II is smart enough for the modern-day world. There’s a companion app that allows audio tweaking, and it supports Alexa too for basic voice commands. With far-field mics, you’ll be able to command Alexa from across the room without needing to raise your voice.
If you want something that is more modern looking, smart, and perfect for a family setup, you can check out the various options and deals offered on Amazon Echo Dots and the Google Nest Mini and Google Nest Hub. These smart speakers have their own USPs and their own ecosystem and are much more average-user friendly. The Marshall Action II, on the other hand, is for the user who knows exactly what he wants.
