Marshall launches another retro-looking Alexa smart speaker
Earlier this week, Marshall revealed yet another smart speaker – the Uxbridge Voice, which is much smaller (5.04 x 6.61 x 4.84 in) than the previous models. More importantly, apart from the fact that it's powered by Amazon's Alexa, it also comes with AirPlay 2 support.
AirPlay 2 support allows iOS users to stream to multiple speakers at the same time. So, if you have more than one speaker in your home, all featuring AirPlay 2 support, you would be able to stream from your iOS device to all of them simultaneously.
The Uxbridge Voice includes support for another interesting feature for music lovers: Spotify Connect. The latter allows you to set up a high-quality Wi-Fi connectivity so that your device will stream music directly from the internet rather than from your phone. Spotify Connect offers better sound than other standard streaming methods and should have a wider range.
Marshall's smart speaker packs a woofer and tweeter, which are both powered by a 30W Class D amplifier. For those interested, this retro-looking Alexa smart speaker will be available for purchase for $200 starting April 8.
