Now with massive streaming functionality, the compact Marshall Acton Multi-Room is the small speaker with a big heart.

Multi-room Marshall

Thanks to wireless connectivity and a great control app, you can now build a network of Marshall speakers around your home. Play the same music in every room or choose different songs for different rooms – the choice is yours.

All your favourite music sources catered for
When it comes to streaming music, Marshall Multi-Room has all the options covered. Built-in Chromecast is ideal for Android users. For Apple fans, you’ve got AirPlay. Whatever the source, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect complete the most comprehensive list of streaming formats.

Seven presets for seven sounds
With so much choice available, it’s great to see that Marshall let you access your favourite seven choices at the touch of a button. Store a favourite Internet radio station or artist, album or playlist on Spotify.

Marshall Multi-Room app
The Marshall Multi-Room app goers much further than simply switching the music between speakers. You can customise your one-touch presets, adjust the brightness of the LEDs and even tweak the equaliser settings – all from your smartphone.

Compact style
Compact but packed with retro charm, the Acton has unique style. From the smooth-edged vinyl casing to the retro style grille and badge, the Acton is a true individual. Great attention to detail continues with the rotary volume, bass and treble controls – the perfect retro balance for the hi-tech underneath.

Punchy performance
Although we wouldn't recommend turning the volume up to '11', the Marshall Acton certainly packs a punch Using a dedicated woofer with its own, powerful 30 watt amplifier, the Acton offers a rich, punchy sound that's got all the grunt you'd expect from a Marshall product. Complimenting this, stereo dome tweeters with their own 10 x 2 watt amplifier give top-end energy to make listening to music a constantly engaging experience.

Perfect for your bedroom, kitchen or study, the Marshall Acton Multi-Room brings the Marshall sound to every corner of your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and sounds fantastic. The Marshall Acton multi-room is a great looking speaker, that sounds fantastic and is easy to set up and use The packaging is high quality as befits the device itself, which is very classy. The brushed gold is muted and the knobs controlling volume, bass, treble and presets have a solid, high quality feel. It looks pretty good in photos, but even better in the flesh. I'm no audiophile and I often find speaker reviews as difficult to comprehend as those of wine or perfume. So I'll leave to others to tell us that "the Acton produces sound with robust notes of cherry and heather..." or doesn't. But I know what I like and the Acton sounds great to me across a wide variety of music. I can pick out details in tracks that I miss listening with my Sennheiser headphones. Set up was easy for me. After unpacking the unit, set up involves downloading Google Home and the Marshall App. I then found the device on Google Home and connected and waited for a firmware update to complete. This took a few minutes. Then I connected the device to the Marshall App, where I tuned a couple of the presets to internet radio stations and then used Spotify Connect (you need a Spotify Premium subscription) to set the rest of the 7 presets to Spotify playlists. I was up and running in about 15 minutes, though it could have been faster if hadn't been doing other things at the same time. Even if you don't end up using this in conjunction with other speakers you might still want to buy the multi-room over the (significantly) cheaper Bluetooth model. WiFi connectivity is better where a number of users will be using the device and leaves your phone free to accept calls, but I think the killer feature here is the hardware preset knob. The nice thing about the preset knob is you can just walk into the room and click a particular preset, rotating the knob and then clicking down (more of a satisfying 'clunk' actually) and immediately your internet radio or playlist is playing. No worries about whether you or your wife/kid's phone was the last to be connected etc. This feature persuaded me to buy the multi-room, even though I'm not sure I need another speaker and it works very well. If you want more control of what is playing you can do at through Spotify or the Marshall App itself. I tend to use Spotify, where it is easy to connect via available devices link. The speaker has generally been reliable in use. My internet connection can be a bit sketchy and has caused the speaker to cut out once or twice, but restarting the Acton and/or the router restored normal service on the couple of occasions this has happened. In Summary, this is not the cheapest connected speaker you can buy, but it looks and sounds gorgeous and works well for geeks who want as many connectivity options as possible, but also for those members of the household who say "but I just want something I can turn on without faffing about with my phone and bluetooth paring and that technical stuff, I just don't want to have to ring you at work to find out how to turn the radio on!"
