Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around.

Free loan machine (Subject to availability. Only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable

45 day cooling off period

With all the Marshall style and sonic signature but in miniature, the Marshall Acton punches well above its weight.

Connect up by bluetooth or cord

For the ultimate in convenience, the Marshall Acton Bluetooth speaker comes with Bluetooth V4.0+EDR connectivity. Connect up to your compatible phone, tablet, laptop or PC and you'll be able to wirelessly stream your stored music and music streaming services. Bluetooth version 4 also ensures the sound quality is superior to earlier versions of the technology. The versatile Marshall doesn't just leave it at that, either. With a 3.5mm analogue input you can connect up your choice of source via cable. Coming complete with a coiled 3.5mm-equipped cord, there are few more stylish ways to hook up your smartphone, MP3 or other device.

It's cute...
Although cute and compact in size, the Acton is every bit a Marshall in terms of style. From the smooth-edged vinyl casing to the retro style grille and badge, the Acton is the perfect Marshall speaker in miniature! Great attention to detail continues with the toggle power switch and rotary volume, bass and treble controls - so refreshing to use in this day and age of multiple menus and app controls!

...Until it bites!
Although we wouldn't recommend turning the volume up to '11', the Marshall Acton certainly rocks! Using a dedicated woofer with its own, powerful 25 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 2 x 8 watt amplifier give top-end energy to make listening to music a constantly engaging experience. For further fine tuning, the Acton is equipped with separate bass and treble controls.

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

MARSHALL ACTON is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great unit - stylish, and powerful sound Great product. Worked so easily out of the box, connects to my iPhone instantly. Looks great, and sounds even better, even over Bluetooth. Plenty of Bass, good clarity. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Class product Easy to connect and easy to use. Very good sound for small speaker too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit of charming retro brought smack bang up to date for the wireless streaming era. This is my second Marshall speaker and I can recommend it wholeheartedly albeit within the normal limitations of a one box speaker. It works very well in smaller spaces and my only gripe is the perceived lack of stereo separation. I love the toggle switch and the heavy and sold feel of the materials and components. The sound quality is very good and reassuringly analogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing looks, build and sound! Where do i start? Beautiful stitched facia with the logo. Pleather surround. Brass panel and knobs. Solid power switch. Sexy little 3.5mm jack lead. Amazing bass and volume. Only the treble starts to go above 6 or so with volume at 10! More than loud enough for a kitchen or bedroom. Unbelieveable quality for the price. I challenge anyone to find better below £250!! Plus it looks awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cool product that sounds as good as it looks For the first time ever I bought a device without seeing or hearing it, based on the positive reviews and so far it's exceeded expectations. Given its relatively small size it has a big full sound. Only down side is it has the smallest stereo field of any device I've ever heard but that's the laws of physics. Will definitely consider additional devices now for other rooms/situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product for music fans who know the Marshall brand Brilliant little speaker...very loud if needed but still quality if turned down. Maybe a bit pricey but good kit. If you are a fan of the Marshall brand its a bit of nostalgia,just a shame it doesn't crank up to 11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money Wow, the acton looks fantastic and more importantly sounds great as well. I would thoroughly recommend this.
