Amazon now offers the Marshall Uxbridge AirPlay 2 retro speaker for $181.99 shipped. After launching with a price of $200, Marshall recently increased the price to $220. Either way, today’s deal offers the third-best price yet and a fairly rare discount overall. We’ve only seen it sell for less a few times and it’s within $2 of our previous mention. As one of Marshall’s most compact speakers in its lineup, the Uxbridge offers AirPlay 2 integration in addition to built-in Alexa and Bluetooth connectivity. There’s the vinyl-wrapped exterior you’ve come to expect from the brand along with gold accents and packaging that’s as stylish as it is functional. You can also dive into our launch coverage to get a closer look at what to expect. See below to find out more.
As a more affordable alternative to the main offering, the popular Marshall Emberton Portable Bluetooth Speaker will let you access retro style for less. Currently seated at $150 via Amazon, this one arrives without the AirPlay 2 support found above but much of the same old-school design. One of the main advantages of this little speaker is its battery-powered design, which makes it a bit more versatile than the option above.
As for other deliciously retro speakers, the folks at Positive Grid have just launched their latest version. The new Spark MINI comes in as an amp-style Bluetooth speaker with much of the same compact design as the main offering. It’s not going to quite match the smart functionality, but it’s worth a look nonetheless. Our recent Tested with 9to5Toys review takes a closer look, too.
