Marshall Acton Multi-room – test and review

Marshall Acton Multi-room review

Small but tough

A cool little kitchen speaker, but the multi-room experience needs to be worked out more.

  • Pro: Nice and well-built. High sound based on size. Convenient quick selection.
  • Contra: Outstanding settings. Angry connection.

Marshall’s BT speakers have now come into models with multirom possibilities, the Acton being the smallest. As before, the performance is exclusive and it seems really rocky. We like the brass knots for sound, source and speed dial.

Installation is harder to match, as there are challenges between the Marshall app and Google Home. The speaker is in one, but not in the other. Occasionally one must look manually right on the speaker. Here is the streamline of the experience. You must also get used to the Google app to create the group, while the Marshall app is taking care of audio settings and speed dialing. Preferably, should everything be done from an app?

To be such a small racket, Action has surprising volume resources without letting it go uncontrollably. It also has a noticeable bass that is sufficient for smaller rooms. Marshall speakers have a characteristic rock sound, but it’s actually less clear in the small speakers. With medium volume in the kitchen, it actually makes it possible to play most of the time as long as you do not demand too high demands.


If you go to Deep Purple t-shirt everyday, you must of course have a Marshall speaker at home. Clothed in leather and with brass knots, it really appears to be genuine goods. In the kitchen or bedroom, where you do not necessarily play the ears blew, Acton is the most suitable model. On the other hand, the question is whether you really should have the multi-room model as long as it does not work better than it does today. Then you get more value with the standard Bluetooth model.
