But its compact size can actually be seen as an advantage over these larger, more cumbersome models. When you max out the volume, the bass may thin out a bit, but the Emberton still delivers surprisingly powerful audio performance for its size. On top of that, it’s got a stylish design and it’s waterproof. If you’re willing to tote around a larger speaker, you can get more bass and power for the price. But plenty of travelers will prefer the Emberton’s bag-friendly dimensions to larger options from JBL and Sony.
The brick-shaped Emberton is available in black with a gray metallic mesh grille on its front face, along with the familiar white-script Marshall logo. It’s quite compact at 2.7 by 6.3 by 3.0 inches (HWD), but surprisingly heavy (1.5 pounds) for its size. Marshall manages to retain the retro look of previous models while giving the speaker a slightly modern feel. It has a digital LED readout in red on the top panel (for battery status) providing the modern, and a central control panel with a brass finish for a touch of retro. The speaker is compatible with Bluetooth 5.0, and internally, dual 10watt drivers are driven by a Class-D amplifier.
